Challenges such as economic and social exclusion, state fragility and environmental degradation – in particular climate change – have become more salient on the global agenda. This is aptly illustrated by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With the SDGs, the global development agenda has broadened its initial focus on economic development and humanitarian aid and become a comprehensive framework for global cooperation. The 2030 Agenda and the SDGs have made clear that global development challenges require collective action if they are to be resolved, at domestic level and with regard to foreign policies by all countries.
