Contributing to sustainable development

September 2017

News

The Global Goals Week takes place 18 – 24 September to mark the second anniversary of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). The SDG’s were adopted in 2015 to achieve sustainable development by 2030. Bringing together individuals, governments, business, international organisations, civil society, and other partners to measure progress, drive action and promote completion of the Sustainable Development Goals is urgent! SNV’s work contributes to the achievement of many Goals.

SNV implements projects on Agriculture, Energy, and Water & Sanitation in more than 30 countries around the world. We aim to alleviate poverty, improve access to affordable clean energy, sanitation as well as clean water and promote climate action. We participate in the Global Goals week to share our work. Join the Global Goals Week online to create awareness, highlight results, and demand action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. Follow #GlobalGoals on our social media channels now!
