Our Work on the Sustainable Development Goals in Cambodia

How the UN is supporting The Sustainable Development Goals in Cambodia

Cambodia has embraced the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions is at the core of the new 2030 Agenda, adopted in September 2015 by 193 world leaders at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in New York. The New Agenda consisting of 17 goals and 169 target came into effect on 1 January 2016. The UN in Cambodia continues to support the Royal Government in translating the commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals into local implementation, as the country is expected to localize the 17 Goals, with the addition of mine action, within the context of the national vision, strategies and plans for sustainable development. To this end, the 2030 Sustainable Development Declaration envisages an inclusive process with consultations with all stakeholders including communities and civil society groups, as well as development partners and the private sector.
