In September 2015, the United Nations General Assembly adopted Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, an action plan for people, planet and prosperity, which also aims to strengthen universal peace and access to justice. The United Nations Member States adopted a resolution recognizing that the greatest challenge in the world today is the eradication of poverty and affirming that without achieving it there can be no sustainable development.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the result of an agreement reached by United Nations Member States and are composed of a Declaration, 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 integrated and indivisible targets covering the economic, social and environmental spheres. Member States have agreed to try to achieve them by 2030.
These are the SDG that Heincke supports:
- #1 Eradicate poverty in all its forms worldwide.
- #2 Ending hunger, achieving food security and better nutrition, and promoting sustainable agriculture.
- #3 To ensure a healthy life and promote well-being for everyone at all ages.
- #9 Develop resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and encourage innovation
