National Report: Sustainable Development Goals For Nepal, 2016-2030, Nepal Planning Commission, Government of Nepal

Back to top

Sustainable Development agenda has come in global discussion since more than two decades. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) based on Millennium Declaration as agreed in the year 2000 by the United Nations (UN) and committed to be achieved by 2015 have been the foundation of the proposed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030. Formally discussed at UN Conference on Sustainable Development held in Rio in June 2012, and in UN General Assembly (UNGA) in September 2014, the proposed SDGs are being negotiated and agreed in the UNGA in September 2015. Nepal, as a member of the UN will have to be part of this global development initiative. In that context, this National Report on the SDGs is the first work to assess the proposed SDGs from national perspectives, examine their relevance in the national context and provide inputs for the global negotiation process as well as initiate national dialogue on their operationalization in the country.
