The Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs are 17 global goals aimed at bringing “peace and prosperity” to people and the planet. They focus on the greatest crises and inequalities faced by society. All 193 member states of the United Nations have committed to them and each goal includes a series of targets to help measure progress towards a deadline of 2030.
For freelance journalists, the different topic areas covered by the goals, the rate of progress on their targets, how communities and governments are working on them, and the challenges on the path to 2030 present a wealth of reporting ideas. Specialising in a goal or series of interconnected goals could be a new career path, while undercovered goals can offer fresh stories to pitch to development desks and news organisations.
