2030 Agenda

On 25th September 2015, countries adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, foster peaceful, just and inclusive societies, and ensure prosperity for all through a revitalised Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, as part of a new sustainable development agenda, known as the 2030 Agenda. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and 169 targets that form this agenda build on the Millennium Development Goals, and aim to complete what these did not achieve. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years, but the goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another. The agenda seeks to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls, and the goals balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: economic, social and environmental.

    In 2016, global policymakers came together to confront a critical policy dilemma: what is, or should be, the role of humanitarian action in a world beset by “permanent emergencies” that do not end, in which the root causes are overwhelmingly structural and political? One major outcome of the summit was the commitment to a “new way of working” based on linking the “triple nexus” of humanitarian, development, and peacebuilding (HDP) efforts. CIC's new report, The Triple Nexus in Practice: Toward a New Way of Working in Protracted and Repeated Crises, shares the results of a major independent review of the implementation of this process.
