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.

Sustainable Cities and Communities

Strategic Alignment

  • Technology is at the heart of transforming cities and countries and we aim to harness the power of ICT to deliver outcomes to the citizens, residents and visitors of Qatar and to drive the sustainable economic Agenda set forward by Qatar’s Vision 2030.
  • Due to its abundant natural resources, Qatar’s growth has been exponential over the past two decades, and this development is expected to continue for years to come. In order to ensure that this occurs in a sustainable manner, research is needed in areas identified in the Qatar National Vision 2030 and beyond.

Context

  • ICT Alignment: The effort of the TASMU Smart Qatar Program focuses on harnessing the power technology and innovation to drive sustainable economic diversification while improving quality of life and enhancing the delivery of public services in Qatar across various top priority sectors. It leverages four key design elements focused around people and technology: Understand, Describe, Identify and Create. By exploring Qatar from the point of view of citizens, residents, and visitors, different journey experiences and touchpoints were defined, challenges and pain points unraveled, and ambitious smart technology solutions identified, shaping the future of Qatar.
  • To strike a balance between economic and social development, Qatar has also created the Center for Sustainable Development, where five dedicated research programs exist to ensure a sustainable future for Qatar, focused on Food and Water Security, Renewable Energy, Natural Resource Governance, Algal Technologies, and Waste Management. Within these research programs, they aim to promote inter-disciplinary research, bringing together national and international academia and industrial partners in both governmental- and industry-funded research projects.
