The Agenda 2030 for sustainable development can be defined as a global plan of action by the UN for people, the planet and prosperity. It is a universal Agenda based on five different spheres of action (known as the 5P):
●People: referred to the decision of ending poverty and hunger, in all their forms and dimensions, and ensuring that all human beings can fulfil their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment.
●Planet: based on the decision of protecting the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainably managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.
●Prosperity: focused on ensuring that all human beings can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives and that economic, social and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature.
●Peace: based on the decision of fostering peaceful, just and inclusive societies free from fear and violence. There can be no sustainable development without peace and no peace without sustainable development.
●Partnerships: focused on the decision of mobilising the means required to implement this Agenda through a revitalised Global Partnership for Sustainable Development, based on a spirit of strengthened global solidarity, focussed in particular on the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable and with the participation of all countries, all stakeholders and all people. The interlinkages and integrated nature of the Sustainable Development Goals are of crucial importance in ensuring that the purpose of the new Agenda is realised. If we realize our ambitions across the full extent of the Agenda, the lives of all will be profoundly improved and our world will be transformed for the better.

This universal plan of action will be implemented by all countries and stakeholders through a collaborative partnership, just as the agreement literally states: “as we embark on this journey together, we pledge that no one will be left behind.”

In this sense, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) supports the different countries with the objective of addressing the complexity of the challenges and achieving the SDGs with different examples of integrated and global solutions. Various social awareness campaigns have also been developed to drive attention to the SDGs in our society, like the creation of a mobile application or the video “'We The People' for The Global Goals” with socially relevant individuals.
