Sustainable Development Goals – BRICS countries’ specifics

In 2015 most countries in the world signed the UN Declaration on Sustainable Development Goals (hereinafter, SDGs) and undertook to move toward their realization, but national goals (17 goals and numerous tasks and specific indices) were to be formulated in accordance with their own developmental characteristics. For advanced countries, this is chiefly solution to the accumulated social and environmental problems with an emphasis on mitigation. For most developing countries, this is practically the basis of devising development programs from various, frequently low, levels of development. However, for the BRICS countries, this is a far more important and topical task of a comprehensive approach to their own (catching-up) development.
