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.

Strategic Alignment

It is in line with the 2030 SDGs as adopted by world leaders in September 2015, which supports global partnership for poverty eradication, reducing inequality and promoting sustainability.
