A Brief History of the SDGs
From SDG Academy on 20 August, 2019
This chapter presents the origins of the SDGs, how they arose and why? The chapter conveys the core idea that clear goal-setting is essential for progress and examines the process through which the SDGs were established. Dr. Sachs begins a discussion of historic development by reaching back several decades to the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment (1972) to the Millennium Development Goals to the present.
