Implementing the 2030 Agenda for sustainable Development, A call to action
Published · Updated
The world must get off to a flying start in realizing the new ambitious and transformative sustainable development agenda.
We, the presidents and prime ministers of Brazil, Colombia, Germany, Liberia, South Africa, Sweden, Tanzania, Timor-Leste and Tunisia, have come together today in an initiative aimed at supporting the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We believe that the effective and universal implementation of the 2030 Agenda requires efforts at all levels, and across all sectors. Government’s efforts alone will not suffice. But we are committed to lead by example and we pledge to do our share.
We will work actively during the coming months to rally support for the implementation of the Agenda. We will promote the sharing of experiences and best practices and a continuous engagement at the highest political level around the world.
The 2030 Agenda is an agenda of the people, by the people and for the people. We therefore invite all stakeholders, governments, parliamentarians, civil society, business sector, labor unions and academia to join us in calling for action. We need sustained engagement, dedication and leadership at all levels to achieve poverty eradication and sustainable development in all its dimensions by 2030.
We will make it our joint mission to ensure that no one is left behind!
