The UN Global Compact has launched a series of issue briefs on the post-2015 development agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The briefs address the following priority issues: climate and energy; education; food and agriculture; governance and human rights; health; infrastructure and technology; peace and stability; poverty; water and sanitation; and women's empowerment.
The priority areas were identified through consultations with Global Compact LEAD companies and other stakeholders. The briefings aim to highlight the role that the business community will play in achieving the SDGs, and its willingness to support governments and civil society in realizing sustainable development.
The briefs were presented to the Co-Chairs of the Open Working Group (OWG) on SDGs. [UN Global Compact Issue Briefs]
