ECLAC calls to strengthen bonds to fulfill the 2030 Agenda (+Fotos)

Santiago de Chile, Apr 18.- Representatives of several Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) member countries presented their experiences to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and called to promote alliances to achieve their fulfillment.
About a thousand delegates from governments, international institutions and civil society, among other actors, are participating in the seventh regional forum in Chile, which evaluates the progress and challenges of the 2030 Agenda.

In 2015, a total of 193 UN Member States committed to meeting 17 goals in 15 years, including zero hunger, no poverty, quality education, gender equality, water and sanitation, sustainable energy, full employment, and addressing climate change.

According to the report, ECLAC considers that 22 percent of the SDGs in the region will be achieved, 46 are progressing in a favorable direction, but not with the required speed, and the remaining 32 will not be achieved. (Take from Prensa Latina)
