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

  • The Social Development Pillar of the QNV 2030 also stresses the importance of security and public safety: “Development of a just and caring society based on high moral standards and social welfare.” The QNV, in addressing the social structure, highlights the need to “Establish a secure and stable society operating on the principles of justice, equality and the rule of law.” Finally, the QNV affirms that Qatar will work to “provide security and stability to the population.” This official interest is reflected in integrating a sectoral strategy for security and public safety in the NDS-1 (2011-2016) and then in the NDS-2 (2018-2022).

Context

  • The Social Protection Strategy (SPS) is a vital and integral part of the social development policy of Qatar and a key instrument to meet the requirements of sustainable development. The SPS 2017-2022 will ensure the integration of the social protection system across the various sectors that support the social protection network to ensure their effectiveness and sustainability so that the entire burden is not shouldered by the government alone.
  • ICT Alignment Example: An important example towards the transparency and publication of the laws and decrees of Qatar’s justice system is the Qatari Legal Portal (Al-Meezan). It is a comprehensive website that archives all laws and legislations that are in force, amended or abrogated since 1961, all judicial judgements, indexed and concluded the legal principles from them, and all relevant legal scholarly references needed.
