Further to its aim of making the sustainable development agenda accessible and comprehensible to a wide range of audiences, the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development has launched a Primer on Sustainable Development. This 2-page document serves as an entry-point to understanding the 2030 Agenda. The primer explains what the agenda is about, provides a brief description of the historical process that led to its adoption, and explains the core principles underlying the agenda, its 5 dimensions, the sustainable development goals as well as their interlinkages. It is meant for anyone looking for an easy-to-understand introduction to the 2030 Agenda and goes hand-in-hand with the 4-minute explainer video on Understanding the Dimensions of Sustainable Development produced by the UNSSC Knowledge Centre for Sustainable Development.
The primer is currently available in English, French, Russian, Dutch, Spanish and German (please find the download links below), while a number of other language versions are in the process of being produced as well.
