The United Nations has been discussing the development of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for a next global agenda. SDGs are a proposed set of targets relating to future international development and they are to replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) once they expire at the end of 2015. Currently, there are 17 proposed goals. AAPA supports these 17 goals including poverty and hunger alleviation and others.
