He noted that the seventeen sustainable development goals represent a high-level civilized and human achievement, and set an example for the global cooperation for the good and benefit of humanity, adding that Qatar National Vision 2030 has agreed with the Sustainable Development Goals in the priorities of education, poverty eradication, health care provision, and environmental preservation.
He said that although Qatar has come a long way in achieving sustainable development goals in the areas of health, education, the economy and the fight against poverty, it spares no effort to provide a helping hand and assistance to achieve the sustainable development goals for other peoples of the world, especially in areas of conflict, war and crisis; praising in this regard the initiatives of Qatar Fund for Development, Qatar Charity and Qatar Red Crescent.
He also noted the efforts and initiatives of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development in supporting the sustainable development goals by enriching creativity and innovation, and developing scientific research in the fields of education and health through many initiatives. Meanwhile, he pointed to Qatar National Librarys efforts in achieving the sustainable development goals through many events, programs and activities.
