It is visible that, few SDG goals are the continuation of the goals of MDGs. For example, the 1st goal of MDG separated under two different heads poverty and hunger as the 1st and 2nd goals of SDG. Primary education target of MDG is enlarged here in SDG as quality education. Similarly, gender equality, environmental sustainability and global partnership to achieve the goals are common is both the goals namely the MDGs and SDGs. There are some additional targets in SGDs like decent work and economic growth, industry innovation and infrastructure, reduced inequalities, inclusive and sustainable cities, responsive consumption and production, climate action, life below water, life on land, peace, justice and strong institutional setup etc. New goals of SDG are mainly focusing on two major themes namely economic growth as a catalyst of poverty reduction secondly sustainable development with a care to the environment.
