Sustainable Development Goals

ADB works to help realize the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals that aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity and peace for all.

  • Sustainable development
     

    The Sustainable Development Goals are ambitious and wide-reaching, achieving them requires massive financing from both public and private sources.

  • SDGs in Asia and the Pacific
     

    ADB's Strategy 2030 supports the 2030 agenda and all its projects are linked to the 17 sustainable development goals.

  • SDGs commitment
     

    Securing the sustainable development goals by 2030 requires renewed focus as countries seek to rebuild from the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Directly financing projects that help DMCs achieve the SDGs.
  • Mobilizing finance for the SDGs particularly from the private sector.
