In September 2015, all 193 member countries of the United Nations unanimously adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its implementation framework, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that charts in detail a way forward to ensure a future that is sustainable for people, planet, peace and prosperity – with the understanding that it can only be achieved through a spirit of partnership between government, private sector, and civil society.
The 2030 Agenda is the most transformative and ambitious plan ever crafted by the global community with 17 goals, 169 targets and 232 indicators – that balance the economic, social and environmental pillars of development. These global goals and targets are universal in nature – they apply to all countries, developed and developing and they are interconnected. The key measure of their achievement will be in having no one left behind and a planet that is future proof for generations to come.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs is collaborating with the United Nations in Malaysia, to organise this inaugural SDG Summit for Malaysia, on November 6-7, 2019. The two-day Summit is expected to have 1,000 participants from Government, UN, Civil Society, Academia, youth and the private sector. The theme of the Summit is “Accelerating Progress on the SDGs: Whole of Nation Approach”.
The key objectives of the Summit will be:
- To review SDG progress in the country and share best practices, including with ASEAN member states
- To showcase commitments, pledges and/or contributions by Government, private sector and civil society towards attainment of the 2030 Agenda and SDGs
- To provide a multi-stakeholder platform to identify strategies to accelerate efforts towards addressing key bottleneck issues that could be incorporated in Malaysia’s development planning and budgeting
- To set in motion a whole of nation approach involving all parts of Government – ministries, agencies at federal, state and district levels; private sector and civil society
- To deepen horizontal and vertical policy coherence vis-à-vis the 2030 Agenda and SDGs
Wide multi-stakeholder participation in this Summit is expected to yield the following outcomes:
- A sense of public ownership and greater awareness on how the different parts of government, business, civil society and youth can contribute towards SDG attainment.
- Better understanding of the SDG-related issues that need to be overcome.
- Development of ideas and strategies to move the 2030 Agenda forward.
Energizing of partnerships and a whole of nation approach for the SDGs.
