Eight international development goals with deadline 2015, established by the United Nations in 2000 to provide a common language and reach global agreement to combat poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and discrimination against women.

A new set of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were launched by the United nations in 2015, to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure peace and prosperity by 2030. Signed during the 21st UN Climate Change Conference (COP 21).

Despite pledging to do so, in 2021, countries are "significantly off-schedule" to meet the goals agreed in Paris in 2015.
Since 2018, the Global Pact for the Environment is under discussion at the United Nations. It seeks to recognise the environmental rights and duties of citizens, states and businesses.

It was also agreed that countries will meet in again 2022 to pledge further cuts to emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2).
