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.

Gender Equality

Strategic Alignment

  • Under the Second Pillar - Social Development of QNV 2030, the State of Qatar aspires to advance and develop the social dimensions of its society by nurturing Qatari citizens capable of dealing effectively and flexibly with the requirements of the age they live in, and by preserving a strong and coherent family that enjoys support, care and social protection. Women will assume a significant role in all spheres of life, especially through participating in economic and political decision-making.

context

  • Qatar has pledged to provide high-quality education to one million girls by 2021, in support of the Charlevoix declaration of the G7 summit of June 2017. These efforts resulted in an improvement in the status of women in labor, health, education and training market indicators, and worked to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women by giving priority to development programs and initiatives to promote the economic and social empowerment of women and to promote and empower the family. This is all based on constitutional foundations of promoting gender equality, provided access to education for women, as well as access to health services, employment opportunities, as well as participation in various fields of work in addition to political participation.
  • Qatar has consistently made sizable donations to the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, solidifying it’s stance in the fight to provide all women with the equal pay, equal sharing of unpaid care and domestic work, an end to sexual harassment and all forms of violence against women and girls, health-care services that respond to their needs, and their equal participation in political life and decision-making in all areas of life.
