ADRA Remains Committed to the Sustainable Development Goals

As the United Nations gathers this week to launch the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the next 15 years, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) affirms its commitment to our partnership with the United Nations and the new Global Goals for 2030.

The momentum we have gained in the last 15 years with the Millennium Development Goals have already pushed us closer toward ending extreme poverty, but there is still much to be done.

Successfully meeting the SDGs hinges upon the partnership and accountability of all countries, governments, and nongovernmental organizations such as ADRA. In every country where it works, ADRA’s efforts are made more effective through its cooperative relationships with partner organizations and collaborations with a variety of government and NGO partners at all levels: community, regional, state and provincial, national, and international, including the United Nations.

We remain as committed as ever to integrate the principles of sustainable development to help meet the Global Goals.

The Sustainable Development Goals are the path for achieving a better future for families around the world. Together with other humanitarian agencies, governments, and communities, ADRA’s offices around the world will continue to promote and implement projects that will help meet the Global Goals by 2030.
