Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, Minister for Climate and the Environment Åsa Romson, Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström and Minister for International Development Cooperation Isabella Lövin are attending the historic summit for the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Sweden has been very active in the negotiations and will be equally committed to the implementation of the Agenda – both nationally and internationally, writes Minister for International Development Cooperation Isabella Lövin.

The new UN development goals – known as the ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) – are starting to fall into place. Sweden’s Ambassador for the Post-2015 Development Agenda, Kajsa B. Olofsgård, is part of the Swedish delegation. Here she tells Swedish Foreign Policy News about what the negotiations were like, which issues Sweden pursued particularly intensely and what will happen next.

The global process of defining a new global agenda for sustainable development post-2015 is now in its final phase. On 11 June, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs invited a multitude of actors and stakeholders to an information Exchange.
