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.

Affordable and Clean Energy

Strategic Alignment

  • In line with QNV 2030, Qatar is leveraging it’s key role as one of the largest suppliers in the world of liquid natural gas (LNG), in a world where energy consumption is an important driver, to invest heavily into renewable and clean energy. Establishing Qatar as a technology development and research hub in new energy industries.

Context

  • Qatar seeks to diversify the energy mix produced through developing and implementing a renewable energy strategy along with its policy and legal umbrella. An example of such an endeavor is Siraj Solar Energy, a joint venture company for the generation of electricity from solar power that was established by Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Qatar Electricity and Water Company (QEWC).
  • Siraj Solar Energy is developing a plan to generate 200 megawatt of solar energy by 2020, to be increased to 500 megawatt afterwards, due to the relevant projects of Qatar Petroleum (QP). The adoption of renewable energy projects will no doubt reduce CO2 emissions, decrease the amounts of oil and gas used in desalination and power generation, and satisfy the growing demand for energy.
