The 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a common global framework for navigating the world’s most urgent economic, social, and environmental challenges. While governments have the primary responsibility to prioritize, coordinate and implement efforts to meet the SDGs, there is wide recognition that the private sector and civil society will play critical roles in the implementation of national plans. As a key pillar of the global energy system, the oil and gas industry is, and will continue to be a driver of economic and social development.
UNDP, IFC, and IPIECA will host a webinar presenting their joint report - Mapping the oil and gas industry to the Sustainable Development Goals: An Atlas. Topics will include:
- exploring the role of the oil, gas and mining industries in the 2030 Agenda;
- highlighting the importance of partnerships in achieving the SDGs; and
- putting it into practice: a deep dive into SDG 7: Affordable & Clean Energy.
The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session, during which attendees will have the opportunity to be a part of the discussion.
