Belize Works to Regain Progress on Sustainable Development Goals Post-Pandemic

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Belize fell behind by four years in its implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals but is working to get back on track. Today, the Ministry of Sustainable Development Climate Change & Disaster Risk Management and the United Nations Resident Coordinator’s Office (UNRCO) held a national SDG Partnership Dialogue. The event is centered on bringing together stakeholders, including civil society, youth and women organizations, private sector entities, and international partners. The meeting aimed to foster collaboration by sharing best practices and promoting partnerships to accelerate Belize’s progress toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Minister of Sustainable Development Climate Change & Disaster Risk Management Orlando Habet highlighted the importance of working towards a greener future and the collective effort it will take.

CEO of Economic Development, Dr. Osmond Martinez, explained that the country has several restraints in implementing projects geared at establishing the SDGs. However, Martinez says changes are being made to ensure Belize does it part to achieve the world goals. 

The SDGs were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
