The Government of Ghana will work hard to achieve the targets of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations, President John Dramani Mahama has said.

On September 25, 2015, countries including Ghana adopted a set of goals to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all as part of a new sustainable development agenda. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved over the next 15 years.

Ahead of a working breakfast for African heads of state to discuss the implementation of the SDGs in Kigali, Rwanda, President Mahama said on Twitter: “The SDG is the most ambitious goal the UN has ever set itself.

“But we can and will work to achieve them. #GlobalGoals”

He added: “Strong political commitment at the global, national, & local levels important to this implementation.”
