The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are central to the work of the United Nations (UN). In Namibia, the SDGs are weaved into the country’s current national development plan, NDP5, demonstrating the national government’s unwavering commitment to work towards the greatest development agenda of our time.
At a historic UN summit on 25 September 25 2015, world leaders adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, consisting of a set of goals that aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. These goals are a call to action for all countries to promote prosperity while also protecting the planet and resources.
The UN House in Namibia houses agencies, programmes and funds which work in support of the Government of the Republic of Namibia (GRN) in the areas of education, health, the environment, food security, gender equality and poverty.
To promote public understanding and awareness of the 17 Goals, UN Namibia branded the different segments of the UN House boundary wall with one of the SDGs. The branded mural creates a striking, colourful display and heightens visibility for the landmark Global Goals – something that all citizens can embrace and inevitably help work towards.
For these goals to be reached, everyone needs to do their part, including you. Click here to learn more about the United Nations and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
