Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals were approved by the representatives of all United Nations member states in September of 2015. These Goals, which apply for the period of 2016-2030, are 17 in number with 169 sub-goals and address local issues as well as international cooperation during the period.

The goals of the national park according to the Management and Conservation Plan can be read in more detail below.
