06 February 2016, 07:05Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - The United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) in Lagos has introduced non-governmental organisations to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

An NGO-Partners’ meeting has been held to introduce the 17 SDGs and its associated 169 targets.

This has been held with a view to enhancing partners’ understanding of the SDGs framework.

The meeting which was attended by 95 representatives of 75 Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), focused on UNIC Lagos priorities for 2016, SDGs Overview, mapping of NGOs based on their mandates and according to the SDGs as well as aligning partners’ core areas of activities with UN Observances in the year.

Director of UNIC Lagos, Ronald Kayanja, highlighted SDGs, Climate Change and Counter-terrorism as part of the 2016 priorities of UNIC Lagos. 

He urged the partners to be strategic in programming this year by aligning their activities with the SDGs. The global goals, he noted, must be localized through the collaborative efforts of UNIC Lagos and its NGO-partners.

To facilitate deliberation at the meeting, every participant was given a copy of UNIC Lagos SDGs Year Planner, which contains all the 17 goals and the 169 targets
