In October 2015, the UN Secretary General sanctioned the new mandate of the Campaign for the next 15 years to contribute to SDG achievement by building and maintaining political will for the Goals, as well as by encouraging and supporting multi-stakeholder engagement in the implementation of Agenda 2030.
