UNITED NATIONS, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) — Understanding population trends will be important for governments striving to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), expected to be adopted by world leaders in September, but the goals do not include specific population targets, John Wilmoth, director of the UN Population Division, told Xinhua in a recent interview.


The 17 SDGs set out targets for all of the world’s 193 countries to achieve in areas of economic, social and environmental development, providing a blueprint for global development between 2016 to 2030. They cover areas including eradication of poverty and hunger, gender equality, climate change, oceans and peace.
