We transform our world: Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, adopted in 2015 by 193 countries of the United Nations (UN), is a program of unprecedented scope and importance, defining the model of sustainable development at the global level. According to Agenda 2030, the modernization effort should focus on eliminating poverty in all its manifestations, while simultaneously pursuing a number of economic, social and environmental goals.
Agenda 2030 includes 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) and 169 related tasks that reflect the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental. This is a universal development plan for the world, which requires adaptation to the realities of each country, hence the role of countries in implementation is crucial.
The Polish perspective of actions for sustainable and responsible economic development is formulated in the Strategy for Responsible Development (SRO), which is an instrument of flexible management of the main development processes of the country.
The coordinator of the process of implementing the Strategy for Responsible Development and the UN Agenda at the government level is the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Technology.
