September 2015 was a momentous occasion in the history of the United Nations as it marked the occasion in which governments around the world agreed upon, and accepted, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a replacement to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The United Nations acknowledges this and says that “2016 presents an unprecedented opportunity to bring countries and citizens of the world together to embark on a new path to improve the lives of people everywhere.”
