Paragraph 54 of United Nations General Assembly Resolution A/RES/70/1 of 25 September 2015 contains the goals and targets. [3] The UN-led process involved its 193 Member States and global civil society . The resolution is a broad intergovernmental agreement that acts as the Post-2015 Development Agenda .

The SDGs build on the principles agreed upon in Resolution A/RES/66/288, entitled "The Future We Want". [4] This was a non-binding document released as a result of Rio+20 Conference held in 2012. [4]

Ban Ki-moon , the United Nations Secretary-General from 2007 to 2016, has stated that: "We don’t have plan B because there is no planet B." [5] This thought has guided the development of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
