As 2015 comes to an end, and with it the 15-year cycle of the anti-poverty Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the United Nations officially will usher in – on 1 January 2016 – an even more ambitious set of goals to banish a whole host of social ills by 2030.
“The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are our shared vision of humanity and a social contract between the world’s leaders and the people,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted unanimously by 193 Heads of State and other top leaders at a summit at UN Headquarters in New York in September. “They are a to-do list for people and planet, and a blueprint for success,” he added of the 17 goals and 169 targets to wipe out poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change over the next 15 years.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls on countries to begin efforts to achieve the 17 SDGs over the next 15 years. Sustainable development goals - United Nations.

Automation is not a new phenomenon but new digital technologies have expanded the type of tasks which can be automated. Technologies which have been identified to have a potential impact on the current and future automation of jobs are advanced robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) fields such as machine learning and deep learning, as documented in a recent report from Eurofound on automation, digitisation and platforms . The automation literature specifies that tasks – that is, parts of a job – rather than whole jobs can be automated.
The reason is that often jobs are made up of task bundles which are not necessarily all substitutable by a machine, or additional tasks are emerging that cannot be automated. For example, in the case of bank tellers, the introduction of ATMs resulted in a shift in the type of tasks they performed, not in the disappearance of the job. Sustainable Energy for All.

The World Bank Group (WBG) has been addressing water and sanitation issues globally with large-scale finance and technical assistance to countries across the world.
With its impact on so many aspects of human and economic development, sanitation will be one of the key drivers to ending extreme poverty by 2030, as it will be an important input to the World Bank’s Human Capital Index. The World Bank Group is committed to using innovative approaches to help meet the sanitation challenges of ending open defecation, improving service delivery, and closing the loop from access to sanitation facilities through to sustainable disposal or reuse of wastewater and fecal sludge. To date, the World Bank has committed US$10 billion to sanitation and water services, which will reach 132 million people. GenderTerm: Gender-inclusive language.

Adaptive Reuse is the process of adapting old structures for purposes other than those initially intended. Asset-Based Community Development is a methodology that seeks to uncover and utilize the strengths within communities as a means for sustainable development.

La metodología utiliza los compromisos del Consenso como base para el análisis sobre el avance de los mismos, haciendo énfasis en los pasos necesarios para alcanzar las metas establecidas en la misma.
En esta iniciativa se entiende como monitoreo social la evaluación participativa por parte de la sociedad civil de las políticas y programas gubernamentales para asegurar que el gobierno cumpla con sus compromisos y ponga en práctica políticas y programas adecuados (Banco Mundial 2006). Durante 2015, los socios regionales, en colaboración con un grupo de expertos en materia de salud y derechos sexuales y reproductivos, desarrollaron las herramientas de monitoreo social. 1.
