In the same year, United Nations (UN) adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as global goals to be achieved by 2030 for all people not only in developing countries but also in developed countries. Further, Paris Agreement was adopted at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) at Paris in December.
