The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.While the SDGs are not legally binding, governments are expected to take ownership and establish national frameworks for the achievement of the 17 Goals.  Countries have the primary responsibility for follow-up and review of the progress made in implementing the Goals, which will require quality, accessible and timely data collection. Regional follow-up and review will be based on national-level analyses and contribute to follow-up and review at the global level.-United Nations, Sustainable Development Goals 2018Here you will visit the sitehttp://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/ (Links to an external site.)(also found in Module 1) and choose a sustainable development goal (SDG) of your choice (you will use this SAME SDG for all Blog entries, each Blog will feature a different country within the United Nations!
