Goals for sustainable development

In 2015 United Nations Member States approved 17 goals as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. These Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which should be achieved in 15 years, represent a universal call to action by governments, institutions, and societies: Poverty must end; there must be an environment of peace and partnership; the planet has to be protected; and the prospects of people around the globe must be improved.

The 2030 Agenda implies a common and universal commitment. For this reason, ARAPDIS assumes responsibility and commitment to this initiative to add and achieve some of these objectives.

The ARAPDIS association has a strategic plan, philosophy, work methodology, missions, vision, and values which are aligned with the SDGs: 34581011121617.
