The Sustainable Development Goals

Professors Vesselin Popovski and R Sudarshan from O.P. Jindal Global University in India discuss the Sustainable Development Goals.

A new framework that global leaders and policymakers have developed to catalyze solutions to global challenges is the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The SDGs were adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit in 2015, and they set targets for addressing issues such as poverty, gender equality, and climate change. The SDG framework does not distinguish between ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ nations but instead articulates goals that apply to every country.

In this video, Professors Vesselin Popovski and R Sudarshan from O.P. Jindal Global University in India share some background on the SDG framework for outlining current global challenges.
