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.”
