About Qatar

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.

Quality Education

Strategic Alignment

  • In line with the lofty goals and objectives of the permanent Constitution and the QNV 2030, Qatar has taken care to spread education for all to build generations conscious and aware of the culture of peace and the means for people to benefit from science and technology. The State encourages and supports talented and distinguished foreign students from least developed countries (LDCs) to study at the University of Qatar, the Doha Institute of Higher Studies, Hamad University and the Education City’s universities. This will help build long-term relationships between Qatar and the students’ countries of origin, in addition to building the human capacities of these students. Helping LDCs achieve the internationally agreed development goals is a major goal of several initiatives under Qatar’s International Cooperation Strategy. Reducing poverty, creating jobs in infrastructure projects, and providing education and health.

Context

  • The Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) has launched and implemented the Silatech initiative to support the aspirations of Arab and global youth of having access to decent work, in addition to the “Education above All Foundation” that provides educational opportunities, especially for children living in low-income families or facing humanitarian crises.
  • ICT Alignment: Alongside the initiatives, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MOEHE) has simplified the process for local students to apply for a variety of scholarship programs through the High Education Institute’s portal for parents and students. The Higher Education Institute aims at supporting the development of Higher, Technical and Vocational Education by offering a variety of scholarship programs so that students are able to pursue Higher Education and be prepared for the tasks they will face in applying to and attending top colleges and universities both locally and around the world.
