On September 25, 2015, the United Nations (UN) saw the adoption of 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 193 member states at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit. The prioritization of the 17 Sustainable Growth Goals will contribute to the quick joint action by the UN to eradicate poverty, protect our planet, and improve the quality of life and futural prospects for all. In view of the challenges related to the 17 SDGs identified by the United Nations, our team has introduced a new model to quantify and assess their development potential. This model determines their priorities based on the established network of sustainable development relationships through a Post-Decision Future Development forecasting approach to analyze the impact of major international movements on the SDGs. This article transforms the statistical data of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into a relationship network. It introduces the overall development speed and establishes the AHP-MLR model to determine the comprehensive influence of the SDGs. Additionally, the SA-PSO algorithm optimizes the ARIMA model to predict changes in 17 SDGs in the next decade. The predictive results indicate that SDG16 will boost the overall development speed by 23% in the next ten years, solidifying its status as the most promising direction for the next decade. We assume the successful realization of quality education, rebuild the relationship network and influence, and introduce three preliminary goals through AHP-MLR model analysis. As such, it is concluded that Internet access will be the focal point of the latest development. Finally, we convert the relationship network into a weighted undirected graph and, with SDG9 as the origin, generate a minimum spanning tree (MST). The results show that this assumption facilitates highly efficient development in SDGs (SDG 6, SDG 8, SDG 12) related to resource utilization. The research model presented in this article serves as an effective tool for the UN and other decision-makers to better understand and optimize the implementation of the SDGs, which, in turn, promotes the realization of global sustainable development.
