Goals of sustainable development

In September 2015, within the framework of the 70th UN General Assembly at the UN summit on the adoption of the Development Agenda for the period after 2015, the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, N.A Nazarbayev, along with other leaders of the UN member states, signed a new document for further global development , stressing that the goals and targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (GSD) fully coincide with the priorities and tasks of Kazakhstan.

GSD are a comprehensive universal set of goals and indicators until 2030 aimed at improving the quality of life of citizens, socio-economic development and environmental sustainability of states.

GSD consist of 17 objectives to be achieved by 2030, as well as related 169 tasks and 242 indicators.

GSD are called upon to contribute to the achievement of sustainable development through the integration of three components: economic, social and environmental. The existence of a close relationship between the three components of sustainable development takes on particular urgency in modern conditions.

For Kazakhstan, the implementation of the GSD methodology and indicators provides an opportunity for systemic adaptation of the system of strategic planning and monitoring of the RK to the world standards, taking into account the consonance of the program documents of Kazakhstan, first of all, "Strategy-2050" and the programs flowing from it, to the global development goals.

In general, the GSD or the so-called Agenda until 2030 in many aspects is consistent with Kazakhstan's development efforts and can serve as a useful and convincing political basis for their achievement, as well as for monitoring and evaluating progress in achieving the LRC.

The mission of the international experts of UNDP with the aim of rapid integrated assessment of Kazakhstan's readiness for GSD implementation and monitoring, held in November 2016, revealed a sufficiently high degree of inclusion of the GSD targets in national and sectoral plans - 61% of GSD objectives are already covered by national strategic documents.

The Government of the Republic of Kazakhstan is currently considering the issue of defining a coordinating structure to ensure effective implementation of the GSD at the national level, the synergy of the program documents of the RK and the GSD, the involvement of the private sector, NGOs and academia.

The goals of sustainable development until 2030:

Goal 1. Eradication of poverty in all its forms.
