Boosting sustainable development in Asia-Pacific region
Shanghai kicked off a training program yesterday to cultivate talent and encourage cross-country communication in implementing the 2030 global goals for sustainable development in the Asia Pacific region.
More than 100 people from countries including Switzerland, the United States, South Korea, India, Thailand, Bangladesh and Turkey, attended the two-day program hosted by the United Nations Institute for Training and Research, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific and the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.
The 2030 global goals for sustainable development were set in 2015 by the United Nations to facilitate healthy growth in areas such as climate change, economic equality, innovation, sustainable consumption and peace and justice.
The Shanghai program aims to offer insights on issues like institutional arrangements for policy coherence and promote interaction among Asian countries and regions.
