In September 2015, world leaders unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) officially came into effect on 1 January 2016 and provide a shared blueprint to address global challenges, including poverty, inequality, environmental degradation, climate change and peace and justice. UNRWA is making a direct contribution to many of these goals across all five of its fields of operation so that Palestine refugees are not left behind.
