Firstly, the parties involved in the agenda have been expanded beyond just the 193 UN members to include people from all walks of life.Secondly, development goals have increased. The 2030 Agenda includes 17 goals that address all UN member nations, replacing the eight MDGs of the 2015 agenda, which focused on eliminating poverty in poor or less developed countries.Thirdly, the idea of development have been updated. After 15 years, the international community has reached a consensus on the issue of sustainable development that combines economic development, social progress and environmental improvement into one.Lastly, the new agenda closes loopholes in MDGs. Improvements have been made in the drafting of the 2030 Agenda, which also includes supervision and concrete measures to raise funds.As for implementing the new agenda, Wu pointed out that people need to practice sustainable development and transform unsustainable methods of consumption and production.Government departments at all levels take a holistic view of development and increase coordination, he added. The sustainable development goals are impossible to achieve without a mechanism in place to track and check progress.(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Jin Chen,Yao Chun)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 8954618;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingChinese envoy pledges 5 mln USD in post-Ebola recoveryUN official welcomes evaluation report on sexual exploitation in peacekeeping operationsNew UN guidebook seeks to prevent child labor practices in agricultureUN Syria envoy visits Damascus, in fresh bid to end 4-year warUN General Assembly gets new presidentUN envoy to Syria arrives in Damascus for talksUN chief condemns killing of UN peacekeepers in DRCUN welcomes Myanmars historic ceasefire agreementUN chief appoints head of UNRCCAUN envoy welcomes release of Yemen PM, ministers from house arrest We RecommendConstruction of HK-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge enters final stage
