"We need action from everyone" to reach 2030 goals: UN chief

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (top row, centre) poses for a group photo with volunteers serving with the Vienna-based international organisations showcasing icons of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

"We need action from everyone" to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030; global targets which will end hunger, reduce poverty and guarantee sustainable living for all.

That's the call from UN chief Ban Ki-moon, speaking at a High Level side event on Friday, entitled; SDGs Coming to Life, Envisaging a Common and Resilient Future.

More than 190 countries signed up to the 17 goals a year ago at UN Headquarters, and it's now up to them to develop national plans for implementation.
