Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
Global demographic growth and demographic shifts, combined with economic, social and environmental evolving contexts, offer opportunities and pose serious challenges to sustainable development. The global population is projected to increase by 2.4 billion people by 2050. Responding to the educational needs of children and youth is crucial to promote responsible citizenship, develop fair, sustainable and prosperous societies and boost youth employment.
HEALTH AND WELLBEING
Health is central to people’s lives and is a key element of equitable and sustainable growth and development, including poverty eradication. Major progress has been made in improving the health of millions of people. However, progress has stalled or is not happening fast enough with regard to addressing major diseases, such as malaria and tuberculosis, while at least half the global population does not have access to essential health services. Concerted efforts are required to achieve universal health coverage and equal access to treatments.
