The Road to Dignity by 2030: Ending Poverty, Transforming All Lives and Protecting the Planet

Drawing from the experience of two decades of development practice and from the inputs gathered through an open and inclusive process, the report charts a road map to achieve dignity in the next 15 years. The report proposes one universal and transformative agenda for sustainable development, underpinned by rights, and with people and the planet at the centre.

Drawing from the experience of two decades of development practice and from the inputs gathered through an open and inclusive process, the report charts a road map to achieve dignity in the next 15 years. The report proposes one universal and transformative agenda for sustainable development, underpinned by rights, and with people and the planet at the centre. An integrated set of six essential elements is provided to help frame and reinforce the sustainable development agenda and ensure that the ambition and vision expressed by Member States communicates and is delivered at the country level:

(a) dignity: to end poverty and fight inequality;

(b) people: to ensure healthy lives, knowledge and the inclusion of women and children;

(c) prosperity: to grow a strong, inclusive and transformative economy;

(d) planet: to protect our ecosystems for all societies and our children;

(e) justice: to promote safe and peaceful societies and strong institutions; and

(f) partnership: to catalyse global solidarity for sustainable development.
