A moment of choice and consequence for a better future

In a world facing political turmoil, economic slowdown, rising inequalities and a worsening  Environmental crisis, our promise to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030 is at stake.

The growing impacts of climate change, compounded by the increasing number of conflicts, are contributing to alarming trends that could reverse our progress in achieving sustainable development. Shockingly, as many as 309 million people in 72 countries are facing chronic hunger, while a staggering 2.2 billion lack access to safe water. The United Nations announced that forced displacement rose to 120 million in May 2024.

Yet, amidst the uncertainty, there is hope—our collective actions to build a better, more just and sustainable future. We stand at a critical moment of choice and consequence if we are to achieve the 2030 Agenda. We must act now to eradicate poverty, end hunger, combat climate change, promote peaceful and inclusive societies and strengthen global partnerships.
