To help its Member States gain a better understanding of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the role International Maritime Organization (IMO)  can play in achieving them, IMO and the United Nations System Staff College held a workshop (11 January) for Member State delegations at IMO’s London headquarters.

Among the topics covered in the workshop were how to integrate different stakeholders and develop coherent policies with regard to sustainable development, and how to generate engagement and buy-in among potential partners.

As part of the United Nations family, IMO is actively committed to helping its Member States achieve the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. Indeed, most of the elements of the 2030 Agenda will only be realized with a sustainable Shipping sector supporting world trade and facilitating global economy.

The 2030 Agenda and the SDGs are widely seen as an opportunity to transform the world for the better, leaving no one behind.

In 2015, 193 countries adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 associated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It calls for action by all countries to eradicate poverty and achieve sustainable development by 2030, world-wide.
