The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global objectives established by the United Nations in 2015 to address various social, economic, and environmental challenges facing the world by 2030. These goals are designed to promote a more sustainable and equitable future for all. Each goal targets specific issues, such as poverty, inequality, education, health, and peace.
In the case of Pakistan, the SDGs hold great relevance due to the country’s unique social and economic challenges. Pakistan faces issues related to poverty, gender inequality, inadequate healthcare and education, as well as the need for peace and justice. Achieving these SDGs is crucial for Pakistan’s development and improving the well-being of its population.
