Where is Oman in their SDGs?

In July 2019, the Supreme Council of Planning (SCP) of the Sultanate of Oman has released its First Voluntary National Review (VNR) of the Sultanate of Oman to the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.

13 out of 17 SDGs!

Oman’s first VNR reflects in an integrated manner the progress made by the Sultanate towards achieving the 17 SDGs.

From the board it shows that out of the 17 SDGs, Oman is according to 13 Goals!

Such an impressive feat inspite of the challenges at hand and ahead.

To conclude, I would like to quote from the VNR:

Aspiring to a bright future where the SDGs are achieved and based on the premise that these rights belong to all, the Sultanate of Oman firmly believes that achieving the SDGs cannot be realized by governments alone, but rather requires building strong partnerships with other parties, including individuals, the private sectors, and CSOs.

Mabrook, Oman!
