However, there is an absolute minority of people living in slums, which increased from 792 million people in 2000 to approximately 880 million people in 2014. Migration from rural to urban areas increased rapidly as the population increased and there are much better alternatives to housing available.
Goal 12: Responsible Consumption And Production
"Ensure sustainable patterns of production and consumption."
● Goal 12 includes the use of environmentally friendly production methods and reduce the amount of waste. It is expected that by 2030, the country's recycling rate will increase to tons of recycled materials. Going forward, companies should start applying sustainable techniques and publish potentially sustainable reports.
● The leading goal is to call for the implementation of the 10-year Sustainable Production and Consumption Program. This framework of the program, agreed by Member States at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, is a global commitment to help accelerate the transition to sustainable production and consumption in developed countries and growing. To create the total impact needed for this step, programs like the One Planet Network have developed various options for the successful implementation of Goal 12.

"World soil degradation neutrality" can be achieved by restoring degraded forests and land lost to droughts and floods. Goal 15 calls for greater attention to preventing the invasion of introduced species and greater protection of endangered species. Forests play a prominent role in the success of the 2030 Agenda, particularly in terms of ecosystem services, livelihoods and green economies; but this will require clear priorities to address key tradeoffs and synergize with other sustainable development goals (SDGs).
Goal 17: Partnerships For Goals

● Promote the development, transfer, dissemination and diffusion of environmentally friendly technologies to developing countries on favorable terms
● Strengthening global partnerships for sustainable development, complemented by multi-stakeholder partners to mobilize and share knowledge, expertise, technology and financial resources to support implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals in all countries, especially developing countries.
● Encourage and promote effective public partnerships, public-private partnerships and civil society, building on the experience and resources of strategic partnerships.
