Fact Check: Romania Did NOT Announce That 62% Of Great Reset Agenda Targets Have Been Met  No Great Reset

Did Romania just announce that 62% of targets from the Great Reset Agenda have been met? No, that's not true: During his address at the United Nations General Assembly on September 20, 2023, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis said that Romania had met 62% of its national targets for 2030, part of the UN's 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. This is not related to the alleged Great Reset conspiracy theory, a debunked claim that global elites are pushing radical policies and a globalist agenda to limit people's freedom.

The claim originated from a video (archived here) published on TikTok by user @iondragoshoreabarezerva on September 26, 2023. The text reads:

Romania reached 62% of the targets from Agenda 2030. Keep on sleeping!

This is what the author claims:

While 99,9% of Romanians haven't even heard of Agenda 2030, Romania just announced that 62% of the targets from the Great Reset Agenda have been met. Everything happens because Davos is giving orders.

This is what the post looked like on TikTok at the time of writing:

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of objectives, adopted by all UN member states in 2015, designed to serve as a "shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future."

Their goal is to address economic, social, and environmental challenges worldwide. In detail, the goals aim to achieve: no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, quality education, gender equality, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, industry, innovation, and infrastructure, reduced inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action, life below water, life on land, peace, justice, and strong institutions, partnerships for the goals.

The SDGs emphasize the interconnected environmental, social, and economic aspects of sustainable development by putting sustainability at their center, according to the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs. In 2015, the United Nations General Assembly introduced the SDGs as part of the Post-2015 Development Agenda, to replace the Millennium Development Goals upon their expiration, in 2015. This agenda sought to design a new global development framework, and the goals were formally articulated and adopted in a UNGA resolution known as the 2030 Agenda, often informally referred to also as Agenda 2030. On July 6, 2017, a UNGA resolution identified specific targets for each goal and provided indicators to measure progress in each field. Most targets are to be achieved by 2030, although some have no end date.

During the UN General Assembly, which took place in September in New York, Romanian President Klaus Iohannis announced that Romania had already met 62% of its national targets, part of the UN's 2030 Agenda for sustainable development. This has nothing to do with some secret intervention by the world elites to take over the world, as alluded to in the TikTok by mentioning the Great Reset Agenda.

Lead Stories has debunked the Great Reset conspiracy theory, a long-lasting, widespread claim, numerous times. The theory originates from the Great Reset Initiative, an economic recovery plan drawn up by the World Economic Forum (WEF) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project was launched in June 2020, with the aim of facilitating the rebuilding from the global COVID-19 crisis in a way that prioritizes sustainable development.
