Abstract

In the year 2015, the UN General Assembly with a mission of more sustainable, and better life set the 17 goals for its member countries known as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are to be achieved by the year 2030. The SDGs are the continuation of “Agenda 21” and “Millennium Development Goals” of the United Nations. Shifting to more affordable & clean energy, and climate action are one of the major goals which were adopted to tackle the threat of climate change. In this paper the goals identified are generic and they have detailed plan of action which links achievement of one goal to that of the other. Proper measurement indicators have been identified with a proper timeline for each zone so that the target must be cross compared with ground actions.
