17 January 2018: In addition to icons for each of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ‘The Global Goals for Sustainable Development’ website now includes icons for each of the SDG targets. The communication initiative notes that it is time to turn worldwide enthusiasm for the SDGs into action, and the targets are meant to guide engagement on a personal level.
Target icons are available when clicking on the associated SDG. An abbreviated title for each target is included next to its icon, along with the original textual formulation of the target.
As agreed in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the 17 SDGs are accompanied by 169 targets: seven targets for SDG 1 (no poverty); eight targets for SDG 2 (zero hunger); 13 targets for SDG 3 (good health and well-being); ten targets for SDG 4 (quality education); nine targets for SDG 5 (gender equality); eight targets for SDG 6 (clean water and sanitation); five targets for SDG 7 (affordable and clean energy); 12 targets for SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth); eight targets for SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure); ten targets for SDG 10 (reduced inequalities); ten targets for SDG 11 (sustainable cities and communities); 11 targets for SDG 12 (responsible consumption and production); five targets for SDG 13 (climate action); ten targets for SDG 14 (life below water); 12 targets for SDG 15 (life on land); 12 targets for SDG 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions); and 19 targets for SDG 17 (partnerships for the goals).
The Global Goals for Sustainable Development website is hosted by Project Everyone, a not-for-profit agency devised by Richard Curtis, filmmaker. Project Everyone is executed by a team of communications and campaign specialists working in partnership with a range of organizations to ensure that everyone knows about the SDGs.
