Ghana and the Sustainable Development Goals

Since 2012, the OWG has been working to formulate the SDGs and their corresponding targets as the basis for the new global agenda, which will 2016 to 2030. The United Nations General Assembly in July 2014 endorsed 17 goals and 169 targets proposed by the OWG, following which several sessions of inter-governmental negotiations were convened in New York to draft a resolution for consideration by the 70th Regular Session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA 70), which opened on 15th September 2015 in New York. This will be followed by a Summit for the Adoption of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, scheduled for 25-27 September 2015.

As the state agency responsible for development planning and the ultimate incorporation of the SDGs into the national development agenda, the National Development Planning Commission has been active in Ghana’s participation in the inter-governmental negotiations and associated international activities since 2012.
