Tobacco Undermines the UN Sustainable Development Goals
As can be seen from the introduction, tobacco's influence extends to many areas of society and even threatens the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals are at the core of the 2030 Agenda and are to be achieved at the global level by 2030. All UN member states are called upon to tackle the world's most pressing problems together.
In a series of articles, AT Switzerland shows what negative consequences tobacco has on the achievement of each of these 17 goals.
This series on the SDGs and tobacco was produced by journalist Julie Zaugg on behalf of AT Schweiz.
