ECLAC: Urgent action needed to reach UN 2030 goals
The Executive Secretary of the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), Alicia Bárcena, wants urgent attention paid to Caribbean countries in order for them to achieve the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Government reviewing development goals
Government is reviewing its efforts to date to implement the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within its development policies. Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, Senator Dr. Jerome Walcott stated a report will be presented to “the United Nations in July that will outline what we have achieved and the challenges we face”. He said, “In preparing for this review, I assure you that the government will engage the private sector to ensure that its perspective is fully reflected.”
Regulatory framework for the environment and human rights
The implementation of the SDGs requires the participation of all stakeholders. The State, as the main responsible agent for fulfilling the commitments of the 2030 Agenda, must promote this participation through normative, political, economic and social incentives that create multi-stakeholder enabling environments.
