Malaysia shares key focuses on SDGs

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.

Minister Nga Kor Ming’s presentation of the key agendas at the High Level Interactive Strategic Dialogue on the Special Theme of the 2nd Session of the UN-Habitat Assembly drew the attention and interest of member countries, particularly in relation to policy implementation, development programmes, financing and the provision of affordable housing.

“The minister expressed Malaysia’s commitment to implementing and driving the SDGs through these four key areas,” the ministry said in a statement yesterday. — Bernama
