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, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected with an aim to leave no one behind.

Advocacy by Family Planning NSW

Achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals can only become reality with strong support for sexual and reproductive health and rights.

In 2018, Family Planning NSW presented a Shadow Report to the Australian Government's Voluntary National Review presented at the High Level Political Forum, at the UN in New York:

Sexual & Reproductive Health & Rights in the Sustainable Development Goals - A Shadow Report to Australia's Voluntary National Review 2018.

In 2019, we submitted a Sustainable Development progress report that highlights the centrality of sexual and reproductive health rights within the goals being reviewed at the 2019 High Level Forum on Sustainable Development:

2019 Progress Report: Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights in the Sustainable Development Goals.
