UN General Assembly’s Open Working Group proposes sustainable development goals

With most targets of the Millennium Development Goals concluding at the end of 2015, proposed new goals set the stage for an ambitious future development agenda. 
 
The UN General Assembly's Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals forwarded to the Assembly its proposal for a set of Goals that consider economic, social and environmental dimensions to improve people’s lives and protect the planet for future generations at the conclusion of the Group’s thirteenth and final session at UN Headquarters on 19 July 2014. 
 
The Group’s proposal on goals will be considered by the General Assembly as part of the broader post-2015 development agenda that world leaders are expected to adopt at a Summit in September 2015.
