Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, United Nations member states agreed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which included 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, education, health and wellbeing, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected with an aim to leave no one behind.


Sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) underpin the achievement of the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, and the achievement of universal access to essential sexual and reproductive healthcare. Without this access, many members of our communities will not have the opportunity to fully and meaningfully engage in society.

Family Planning Australia aims to highlight the centrality of SRHR within the Sustainable Development Goals being reviewed annually at the United Nation's High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and through other forums such as the Commission on Population and Development. Our reports provide input into these global discussions and aim to influence the Australian Government.

Family Planning Australia supported the development of the International Planned Parenthood Federation's SDG Accountability Manual, which is a tool for civil society to ensure implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
