Modelling Tools
for sustainable development

Our commitment to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development represents a historic international commitment to improving human well-being and protecting our shared planet. It calls on each country to carefully balance economic, social and environmental priorities, and choose the right mix of public policy options.

To help policymakers meet this challenge, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the United Nations Development Programme and partners have created a suite of analytical modelling tools. These track the complex interactions of different dimensions of sustainable development. Countries are using these tools to move forward on core objectives such as achieving sustainable economic growth, tackling climate change and advancing social inclusion.
