The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda has its origins in decades of work at the United Nations on sustainable development.  In reviewing the progress towards fulfilling the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (launched in 2000), governments called in 2010 both for accelerated progress on the MDGs and for new ways to advance the UN development agenda beyond 2015. The resulting 2030 development agenda is the U.N.'s most ambitious vision for sustainable development yet and will reshape both the practice of development globally, including the role of the private sector.
