Universal Sustainable Development Goals: A Challenge For The Rich Countries As Well As The Poor - UNEP Perspectives No. 19

United Nations Environment Programme (2016-01)

This edition focuses on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); explaining them as global goals that challenge both, developed and developing countries to find new pathways to a more sustainable future. The authors present a particular focus on what the SDGs mean for developed countries. Here, the goals and targets are broadly split into three categories: domestic sustainability targets, do-no-harm targets, and international responsibility targets, and the UK is given as a case study. Proposals for what is required for the successful implementation of the SDGs are also given.
