One of the main outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference was the agreement by member States to launch a process to develop a set of sustainable development goals (SDGs) that could be a useful tool for pursuing focused and coherent action on sustainable development. Member States resolved to establish an “inclusive and transparent intergovernmental process open to all stakeholders, with a view to developing global sustainable development goals to be agreed by the General Assembly.” In launching this process, member States outlined a number of criteria that the SDGs should meet. They also specified the nature and broad composition of the body to be tasked with developing a proposal to the UNGA, as well as a timeline for completing its work.
