Full details about the SDGs are available on the UN website.

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development encourages member states to provide reports on progress...
As the Sustainable Development Goals Report 2022, published by UN DESA, outlines, cascading and interlinked crises are putting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in grave danger, along with humanity’s very own survival. The Report highlights the severity and magnitude of the challenges before us. The confluence of crises, dominated until 2022 by COVID-19, climate change, and conflicts, are creating spin-off impacts on food and nutrition, health, education, the environment, and peace and security, and affecting all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Report details the reversal of years of progress in eradicating poverty and hunger, improving health and education, providing basic services, and much more. It also points out areas that need urgent action in order to rescue the SDGs and deliver meaningful progress for people and the planet by 2030.
This interview with Johannesburg-based Zak Wood discusses how the SDGs can be leveraged by businesses.
First agreed in 2015, the 2030 deadline to achieve them is fast approaching. Even before Covid-19, achieving them was going to be a huge challenge, but the events of the past few years mean we need to redouble our efforts.
