• [Nigeria] Cơ Hội Thực Tập Tại Chương Trình Phát Triển Liên Hợp Quốc - UNDP Sustainable Development Goals Internship 2018
    HẾT HẠN

    The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) were adopted in September 2015 in New York, as the successor to the unfinished business of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The innovative idea of goal-oriented planning pioneered, by the UNDP Millennium Project during the implementation of the MDGs, gained traction in Nigeria when MDGs needs assessment and costing were used by Nigeria as a basis for a ten-year development strategy (2006-2015). Across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) too, SDGs-based planning has become a major plank in the pursuit of pro-poor policy initiatives in the fight against poverty.

    Unlike the MDGs, the integrated focus of the Agenda 2030 and the SDGs require an integrated approach incorporating the cross-sectoral linkages of policies, trade-offs, and policy-synergies. This is evidenced in the number of SSA countries, including Nigeria, Malawi, Senegal and Cote d’Ivoire that are currently undertaking integrated SDG policy design as a basis for scaling up public investments in social and physical infrastructure towards achieving the Agenda 2030.
