One of the reasons the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 2030 Agenda are a transformative development framework is that they are based on human rights. Over 90 percent of the goals and targets of the SDGs correspond to human rights obligations. As Member States make progress on the SDGs, they make progress on their human rights obligations – they are two sides of the same coin.
