Learn about Embrapa's contributions to the UN's 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals
The 2030 Agenda has been proposed by the United Nations (UN) to member countries in 2015, for the formulation and implementation of public policies to promote sustainable development.
The Agenda 2030 establishes 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 169 targets to be achieved by 2030, which are classified into Economic, Social and Environmental categories, as a list of tasks to be fulfilled by governments, private sector, and civil society in a collective path toward sustainable development, set on the pillars People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnerships.

By generating technological knowledge and assets for the sustainability of Brazilian agriculture, Brazil and the Planet have in the local science a strong ally to meet the 2030 Agenda's targets. But what do the 17 Sustainable Development Goals entail and how do they contribute to guiding Embrapa's actions?
