The imbalance between our ideals and our way of living has put sustainable development on the line. With this thought in mind, the United Nations General Assembly drafted 17 global goals in 2015 intending to achieve them by 2030. These goals are known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals aim to achieve no poverty, zero hunger, quality education, and gender equality, among others.

As a result of this resolution by the UN General Assembly, nations all over the world have started taking global initiatives for sustainable development. But how do we assess the progress made by the countries, if any? So, June 2018 saw the birth of the online publication SDG-Tracker. Based at the University of Oxford and on the Our World in Data database, the SDG-Tracker monitors the progress made by the nations. 

The UN has resolved to sustain our present to ensure a future.
