KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia has shared the four key focuses of the government to implement and drive Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the ongoing United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-Habitat) 2023 in Nairobi, Kenya.
The Local Government Development Ministry said the four areas were policy alignment with strategic planning, governance structure, more accurate collection and sharing of data and information, and funds to achieve the goals.
