Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, all United Nation member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,  a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. This 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development focuses on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries to end poverty, and other deprivations must go hand in hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our natural resources.

The State of Hawaii’s Office of Planning supports the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  These 17 Sustainable Development Goals align with the State of Hawaii’s Planning Act, Hawaii Revised Statutes Chapter 226.  The Office of Planning organized a matrix to validate the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals alignment with the Hawaii State Planning Act, the Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Plan, and the State of Hawaii’s Aloha+ Challenge.
