This is the title of the sustainable development goals (SGDs) adopted by the international community in 2015, which will determine the global development policy agenda until 2030. Development policy and development cooperation is an area that has received increased attention in recent years, both politically and in the media, and is often discussed under the heading "Fighting the causes of flight".
