Sustainable Development Goals

Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by all member states of the United-Nations in 2015, describe a universal agenda that applies to and must be implemented by all countries. The SDG Index and Dashboards Report is the first worldwide study to assess where each country stands with regard to achieving the SDGs. Sound metrics and data are critical for turning the SDGs into practical tools for problem solving. SDGs set standards not only for emerging and developing countries, but also for the industrialized nations. Governments and civil society alike can utilize the SDG Index and Dashboards Report to identify priorities for action, understand key implementation challenges, track progress, ensure accountability, and identify gaps that must be closed in order to achieve the SDGs by 2030.

This page will expand on Qatar’s current strategic alignment towards the SDGs, including references from the numerous national strategies that have been implemented to achieve Qatar’s National Vision 2030. By clicking on each of the following icons, you will be directed on a brief summary to what Qatar achieved for each of the respective SDGs that Qatar has tackled or is in the process of tackling.

It is exciting to mention that HH Sheikha Moza has been selected for a second time to be an Advocate of the Sustainable Development Goals in recognition of her leading role in providing quality education, youth empowerment, and human development through her initiatives at the local and international levels.

Decent Work and Economic Growth

Strategic Alignment

  • The QNV 2030 constitutes the general framework for Qatar’s transition towards a diversified and competitive knowledge economy. A knowledge-based economy primarily depends on the use of ideas rather than physical capabilities and on the application of technology rather than processing raw materials or employing unskilled labor force.
  • Given the many cross-sector relationships among the sectors involved in the labor market, the successful implementation of an efficient workforce sector strategy would not only lead to human capital development and more efficient labor market, but also to realizing other QNV 2030 goals as a result of the many inter-sectoral relations.
  • Higher education levels have direct impacts on labor force participation. Furthermore, an interrelationship among education, training and employment requires that sectoral policies and decisions be coordinated, coherent and integrated in the context of appropriate institutional arrangements.

Context

  • It is necessary to build an efficient and highly motivated and engaged national workforce. Given the small size of Qatar’s population, Qatari citizens will not have the numbers and skills enough to manage complex systems, infrastructure and other work requirements under the Fourth Industrial Revolution, rapid growth, and diversified and technologically advanced economy, which requires directing the labor market towards the recruitment of skilled and globally competitive expatriate workers, developing labor legislation, and improving the labor market information system.
  • ICT Alignment: To support garnering a technologically advanced economy, the Digital Incubation Center (DIC) was created to boost ICT innovation in Qatar, particularly among young people at the critical early stages of starting or growing a technology-related business. DIC looks for entrepreneurs capable of harnessing emerging technologies to create innovative products, solutions, or services that will contribute to Qatar’s digital economy and support healthy economic growth.
