The agenda is a plan of action with 17 Sustainable Development Goals aimed at eradicating poverty as an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.

The ambitious goals contain 169 targets, stimulating action over the next 15 years in areas of critical importance for humanity and the planet.

They recognise the interconnectedness of striving for peace and prosperity with promoting the health and dignity of people, the sustainable use of our planet’s resources and the need for urgent action on climate change, as well as the importance of forging effective partnerships to make this a reality.

Satellite agencies like EUMETSAT have a key role to play in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’s aims. Systematic and global observations of the Earth from space are essential for decision-making and policy formulation in all regions of the world.
