WHY SDGs Consortium

Greater Miami is the second-most unequal large metro in the nation. Miami’s economy is dominated by its low-paid service class. Poverty is widespread, it has stark racial dimensions.

Miami still ranks among the most segregated cities in the country, opportunities in the tech sector are still stratified along racial lines.

Seas are projected to rise in Miami-Dade County by more than 15 inches in the next 30 years, increasing flood risk further inland and with greater frequency.

Communities of color will likely bear the heaviest burden from the changes wrought by climate change, including more deaths from extreme heat and property loss from flooding in the wake of sea-level rise.

“The seventeen Sustainable Development Goals 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 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York in September 2015.

The SDGs are a to-do list for people and planet. The 17 global goals and 169 targets aim to wipe out poverty, fight inequality and tackle climate change over the next 15 years.
