Uzbekistan to adopt Nationalised Sustainable Development Goals
In September 2015, Uzbekistan, along with other UN Member States supported the adoption of a global development agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This is a common framework, consisting of 17 goals and 169 targets that obliges all countries to lift economic growth to a new level, while ensuring environmental sustainability and taking actions with regard to climate change. The SDGs are based on MDGs and call upon the completion of unfinished agenda.
After the adoption of global SDGs at the General Assembly in September 2015, the Government of Uzbekistan has demonstrated a strong commitment to the implementation of global goals at the national level.
In February 2016, the Government has initiated a systemic and well-targeted work on the adaptation of global SDGs to country context to develop a comprehensive national agenda for sustainable development, with goals and targets for the period up to 2030. To implement SDGs in Uzbekistan, a draft Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers has been prepared to endorse the adapted to country context national sustainable development goals and targets for the period up to 2030. The draft Resolution with the list of goals and targets were published for public consultations on Government RIA web portal https://regulation.gov.uz/ru/documents/1312
