Last September World Leaders committed to 17 Global Goals to achieve 3 extraordinary things in the next 15 years: End extreme poverty; Fight inequality & injustice; Fix climate change. The Global Goals for sustainable development could get these things done. In all countries. For all people. If the Goals are going to work, everyone needs to know about them.
They call for action by all countries –poor, middle and high-income, and pledges no one will be left behind.
Here in Ethiopiaid we welcome these Global Goals and commit to help in the achievement of those that are of particular interest for our work in Ethiopia:
Goal 1: No Poverty - End poverty in all its forms everywhere.
Goal 3: Good Health & Well-being - Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.
Goal 4: Quality Education - Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.
Goal 5: Gender Equality - Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.
Goal 8: Decent Work & Economic Growth - Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.
