New York, 18 July 2016: Speaking at the first High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development following the adoption of the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development, His Excellency Mr. Thoriq Ibrahim, Minister of Environment and Energy, provided an insight into Maldives’ initiatives in implementing the 2030 Agenda in his national context.

Noting the need to maintain the momentum since the Agenda’s adoption last year, Minister Ibrahim stressed the urgent need to start aligning national policies with the sustainable development goals and targets. In an effort to “localise the SDGs”, the Maldives has undertaken an exercise to map them out against the government’s manifesto and existing sector plans. The results of this exercise, he said, were important in analysing the gaps that remain and to provide a baseline assessment of the state of play. Of note, the exercise showed that the Maldives’ domestic policies currently align with 70% of the sustainable development goals and targets, which is highly commendable.
