The Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals give us a global plan for a sustainable future – economically, environmentally, and not least, socially. Refugees and displaced people are today among those furthest behind when it comes to reaching the goals. This is something that we at DRC Danish Refugee Council want to change.
DRC contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) build on the commitment of all countries to ‘leave no one behind’. This global, inclusive pledge corresponds closely with the mission of DRC Danish Refugee Council, and that is why it is natural for us to support the SDGs in our work.
Today, refugees and displaced people are among those that are furthest away from reaching the SDGs’ targets and aspirations.
At DRC, we are working to reduce this gap moving towards 2030 – as the refugees’ spokesperson, through positive action, and through involvement in strategic partnerships.
If we do not improve the situation for refugees and displaced people and ensure sustainable solutions for conflict-affected countries, we will not achieve the SDGs for everyone.
