The described project contributes to the following United Nationsʼ Sustainable Development Goals
Goal 17: Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
The 17 goals can only be achieved within the context of a strong global partnership. Governments, civil society and companies must work on implementing them together. “No one left behind” is the main principle behind Agenda 2030. The UN member states have made commitments to reach the people furthest from the goals first. However, the funds available for public development cooperation have decreased in the poorest countries over the last few years. Only five countries have kept their promise of maintaining the 0.7 per cent prescribed by the Official Development Assistance quota – that is the share of gross national income dedicated to public expenditures for development cooperation. Germany has also not yet met the Official Development Assistance quota, although it has continuously increased its expenditures in the last few years.
All United Nations member states adopted the 2030 Agenda in 2015. At its heart is a list of 17 goals for sustainable development, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our world should become a place where people are able to live in peace with each other in ways that are ecologically compatible, socially just, and economically effective.
