UN’s Work on SDGs in Lebanon

“The UN is uniquely placed to connect the dots to overcome these challenges. To succeed, it must further strengthen the nexus between peace and security, sustainable development and human rights policies – a holistic approach to the mutually-reinforcing linkages between its three pillars. The 2015 landmark agreements on sustainable development, notably the Agenda 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda layout a clear strategy for action. They represent a unique opportunity that must be seized. Achieving these important goals has direct implications for peace and the realization of human needs and fundamental rights. For many it means survival.”

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres

UN’s general plan for Lebanon in terms of SDGs

The SDGs are an opportunity to focus on Lebanon and to engage with the population about their needs and aspirations for the next 15 years for The Lebanon We Want. With a plan to help with the adoption and incorporation of the SDG agenda as a national plan for development policy, planning, implementation and monitoring, the UN stands ready to support!
More specifically, UN agencies are leading activities relating to the SDGs that will help localize the 2030 Agenda here in Lebanon, ensuring that their activities are aligned to the country’s needs and priorities.
