Nearly three years after the official launch of the post-2015 agenda, which plots the path for a better world by 2030, people are still grappling with how to make the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a reality. But perhaps the ambitious nature of the SDGs should give us some valuable clues on how to go about it. The new partnerships and collaborations encouraged by the goals represent a starting point for making the 2030 Agenda a truly global endeavour.
Entitled Our vision for a better world, this edition offers a forward-looking view to tackling some of the world’s most global challenges by 2030.
From thematic areas like climate change and smart cities, the issue highlights how International Standards respond to global needs and help benchmark our progress against the SDGs.
ISO standards help to measure success and identify challenges.
