It is a civilizatory agenda that puts the dignity and equality of people at its center and calls to change our current path of development. It is a universal commitment made by both developed and developing countries, in the framework of a strengthened global partnership, based on collaboration on the means of implementation for lasting change, the prevention of disasters due to extreme natural events, as well as the mitigation and adaptation to climate change.

The 2030 Agenda is the result of the broadest and most participatory consultation process in the history of the United Nations and represents the emerging multilateral consensus among governments and diverse actors, such as civil society, the private sector and academia. Further, the normative foundations of this multilateral agenda emerge from the United Nations Charter of 1945 to the more than 40 references of conferences and conventions of the UN approved up to date.
