What are Sustainable Development Goals?
In 2015, the United Nations and its 193 member countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda declared 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and identified targets and global indicators to support strategies that promote economic growth and eradicate poverty. The SDGs address a range of social needs, in particular, education, health, social welfare, and employment opportunities. They also seek to combat climate change and promote environmental protection measures.
As a champion of SDG 17, strengthening the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development, MATT seeks to build and support partnerships for sustainable development regionally. MATT leads collaborative multi-sector projects between governments, the private sector, and civil society organizations dedicated to regional economic development and the social advancement of the vulnerable groups.
We are currently working on projects aimed at improving health (SDG # 3), education (SDG # 4), economic development (SDG # 8) and measures to combat inequality (SDG # 10).
