RET's Commitment to SDGs

What are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted by the United Nations (UN) in 2015, serving as a global call to action to – among other goals – end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030, all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

They’re meant to serve as a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all, and they address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.

RET's Commitment

RET is committed to helping achieve these ambitious goals. From Quality Education (SDG 4) to Gender Equality (SDG 5) and Reduced Inequalities (SDG 10), many of our projects cut across sectors and goals. Each of our country teams and the projects they’re implementing are doing their part to help reach these goals.

Our areas of intervention also overlap with many of the goals – from education (SDG 4: Quality Education) and nutrition and food security (SDG 2: Zero Hunger) to economic growth and development through our skills and vocational training programs (SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth).
