Sustainable Development Goal 16: Preparedness, Progress and Challenges of Bangladesh A Study of Selected Targets - Executive Summary (English)
Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also termed as the New Global Agenda or Agenda 2030, have been adopted by 193 United Nations’ (UN) members at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September 2015. The implementation of SDGs started from 1st January 2016 and the member states of the UN are committed to the implementation of the targets by 2030. The SDGs are comprised of a set of 17 aspirational “global goals”, which are designed to be achieved by meeting 169 targets and to be measured by analysing 244 indicators. The main difference between SDGs and Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is that SDGs put more importance on the concept of quality rather than quantity.
