Expo 2020 and UNIDO to Support Sustainable Development Goals

Expo 2020 Dubai is to work with United Nations (UN) body UNIDO to promote entrepreneurship and investment around the world to help realise the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding that will lead to UNIDO and Expo 2020 Dubai working together on some of the targets for 2030 by exploring initiatives such as sharing knowledge, thought leadership and co-hosting events.  The SDGs were agreed by the UN in 2015 and aim to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. Each goal has specific targets to be achieved by 2030, such as eradicating extreme poverty or reducing premature mortality from noncommunicable diseases by a third.
