The United Nations (UN) is an international organization founded in 1945 with the goal of promoting peace, security, and cooperation among member countries. In 2015, the UN launched the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, consisting of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to address the most urgent global challenges such as poverty, hunger, health, education, gender equality, clean energy, among others. Economic development plays a crucial role in achieving the SDGs as it can generate resources for investments in infrastructure, health, education, and jobs, contributing to improving people’s quality of life. However, it is essential that economic growth be inclusive, equitable, and sustainable, considering the social and environmental aspects of human development.
