Domain One: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

An improved understanding of the globally coupled natural, physical and social systems of our planet, and the identification of tractable pathways for sustainable and equitable development, are major and urgent tasks.

The 2030 Agenda, and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), agreed in 2015 by all 193 Member States of the United Nations, provide an integrated framework for this work. Science is vital to the development and implementation of this agenda and of related post-2015 agendas such as the Paris Agreement under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the New Urban Agenda (UN-Habitat), and the Sendai Framework of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR).
