The 2030 Agenda contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals with 169 targets. This comprehensive agenda is a plan of action for humanity to tackle the world’s biggest problems – coherently and systematically. The 17 SDGs cover all three aspects of sustainable human development: the social, environmental and economic dimension.

 

Alcohol is a major obstacle to sustainable human development, adversely affecting all three dimensions of development and reaching into all aspects of society. It is jeopardizing human capital, undermining economic productivity, destroying the social fabric and burdening health systems.

 

Alcohol kills 3 million people worldwide every year.
