Nowadays the world is facing a serious problem related to climate change and its repercussion for human beings. At the same time, world societies are struggling with the consequences of the last economic crisis. These issues have not escaped the attention of the United Nations, and therefore in 2015 the organization adopted 17 goals to improve the social, economic and environmental situation. The Sustainable Development Goals are not the first priorities announced for the world. In 2000, the Millennium Development Goals were adopted. They dealt with important issues of the day, encouraging the global community to take necessary actions. This paper addresses two issues. Firstly, it describes the evolution of the range of adopted goals to improve the socio-economic situation of people, taking into consideration the relation with the concept of sustainable development. Secondly, it uses the indicators as the main instruments to assess the progress in achieving accepted aims

Obecnie świat boryka się z poważnymi problemami związanymi ze zmianami klimatu i ich konsekwencjami dla człowieka i środowiska naturalnego. Jednocześnie wiele społeczności podejmuje wysiłki ukierunkowane na przezwyciężenie skutków ostatniego kryzysu gospodarczego. Te kwestie nie uszły uwadze Organizacji Narodów Zjednoczonych. Dlatego też pod jej auspicjami w 2015 roku przyjęto 17 celów ukierunkowanych na poprawę sytuacji społecznej, gospodarczej i środowiskowej. Cele Zrównoważonego Rozwoju nie są jednak pierwszymi tego typu priorytetami ogłoszonymi dla świata. W 2000 r. przyjęto Milenijne Cele Rozwoju, które swoim czasie podejmowały ważne kwestie, wymagające niezbędnych działań społeczności globalnej. Niniejszy artykuł dotyczy dwóch kwestii. Po pierwsze opisuje ewolucję zakresu przyjętych celów ONZ w zakresie poprawy sytuacji społeczno-gospodarczej ludzi na świecie, z uwzględnieniem znaczenia koncepcji zrównoważonego i trwałego rozwoju. Po drugie, podejmuje zagadnienie roli wskaźników jako głównych instrumentów służących ocenie postępów w realizacji nakreślonych priorytetów.
