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.

Clean Water and Sanitation

Strategic Alignment

  • QNV 2030 aims to realize high-level achievements worthy of the leadership role Qatar intends to assume in environment issues worldwide. Qatar will protect the environment despite the challenge of its rapid population growth. Examples of issues that Qatar used to face include: increased waste, sanitation network coverage to all residential areas and pressure on freshwater sources. As the population increases, domestic waste increases, which requires more waste treatment efforts. This large population growth inevitably puts pressure on natural resources, especially freshwater. It also does require greater efforts on water treatment and reuse.

Context

  • Qatar has succeeded in achieving the sixth goal of sustainable development by ensuring the availability of water and sanitation services for all the residents in the country. The Permanent Water Resources Strategy Committee and Qatar’s Environment Protection Law aim to secure water for future generations, as the main proponents towards achieving the sustainable development goal.
  • The efforts of the State of Qatar in achieving water and food security through the strategy of integrated water management, water recycling and use in a number of purposes such as central cooling of the areas as an alternative to drinking water.
