The Global Goals comprise 17 goals for sustainable development towards 2030. The overall purpose is to counteract climate change, put and end to extreme poverty, and fight inequality and injustice.

The 17 goals are also known as the Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs. Each of the SDGs has a number of underlying targets resulting in a total of 169 targets.

The global goals were adopted in September 2015 by all 193 United Nations' member states as part of the 2030 development agenda.
