UN Sustainable Development Goals
The UN Summit in September 2015 gathered all United Nations Member States. A global blueprint for sustainable development, ensuring peace and prosperity for people and the planet for now and future was offered at this summit. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were officially launched to be implemented by 2030.
The list of SDGs includes 17 goals covering a vast range of aspects. They are mainly focused on eradicating hunger and poverty, ensuring gender equality, clearness of water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, eliminating climate change. They also include tasks of ensuring conditions for health, well-being, qualitative education, decent work and economic growth, implementation of innovations and infrastructure, development of the industry, and others. The countries collectively committed to find sustainable development solutions in order to ensure the rights of everyone human by 2030.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals were developed through the cooperation work with non-governmental organizations, politicians, scientists, charities, health and environmental organizations, international trade associations, and other organizations. Each organization in each country sets its own priorities in 17 SDGs, allocates the goals that are in its jurisdiction and are the most important just for it, and then implements them in various ways. Sometimes these are radical transformations, methods, and processes, changes in behavior patterns and mindsets. At the same time, they all have equal priority for the United Nations. Moreover, these goals are equal for both developed and developing countries, and all countries are responsible for achieving progress on sustainable development in defined terms.
As a rule, each goal has 8–12 targets, and each target is measured by 1-4 indicators to track progress toward reaching the targets and final goal. The countries regularly report the actual data and results of their activities. All indicators have internationally established methodology and are conceptually clear for all other countries.
Example 1. UN Sustainable Development Goals in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM (Mac)
The achievements of some countries become a model for other ones to follow. The cooperation, exchange of experience and comparison of results allow countries to develop the ideal strategy to reach the SDGs and solve the global challenges the world faced on.
By making the infographics for several years for one country or offering results for different countries, you can easily compare them and track progress. The infographics help to make transparent the process of implementing innovations and changes and show achievements in implementation in outlined directions. It is a way to detect some inconsistencies and aptly correct ways, methods and instruments of achieving main goals or to take additional actions to achieve progress in the implementation of global SDGs.
The methods to reach goals extremely differ, therefore you can make separate infographics for each of the 17 SDGs to illustrate the actions planned to reach each one.
Example 2. Sustainable Development Solution in ConceptDraw STORE
Sustainable Development solution includes 12 libraries with 300+ vector design objects and a variety of samples that will help create your own diagrams in minutes. It also includes samples illustrating a set of Sustainable Development Goals in various ways, in the form of a flower or as a table. These are excellent examples illustrating the capabilities and flexibility of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software. When designing your diagrams, you are free to choose a sample you like the most from the suggested ones and use it as the base for your diagram. You can also imagine your own manner to depict the SDGs and implement it in the application.
Example 3. Sustainable Infographic - The Sustainability Flower
The UN Sustainable Development Goals samples you see on this page were created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software using the management tools of the Sustainable Development Solution. These examples successfully demonstrate solution's capabilities and the professional results you can achieve using it. An experienced user spent 10-20 minutes creating each of these samples.
Use management tools of the Sustainable Development solution to design your own Sustainable Development Infographics quick, easy and effective.
