SLU contributes to the global goals

Agenda 2030 and the 17 global goals for sustainable development were adopted by the UN in 2015. The aim is to reduce poverty and achieve food security, improve education and health, mitigate climate change and achieve a sustainable use of sea and land-based ecosystems.
