The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by the United Nations in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that by 2030 all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

The 17 SDGs are integrated—they recognize that action in one area will affect outcomes in others, and that development must balance social, economic and environmental sustainability.

Countries have committed to prioritize progress for those who’re furthest behind. The SDGs are designed to end poverty, hunger, AIDS, and discrimination against women and girls.

The creativity, knowhow, technology and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDGs in every context.

Governance for peaceful, just, and inclusive societies

People’s lives are better when the government is efficient and responsive. When people from all social groups are included in decision-making that affects their lives, and when they have equal access to fair institutions that provide services and administer justice, they will have more trust in their government.

The benefits of our work on governance are evident in all the areas covered by the SDGs, whether it’s climate action or gender equality.


Capacity Building Activities

Our Capacity building activities are aimed at strengthening and maintaining the capabilities of our people to design and implement strategies that minimize the negative impacts of current social, economic and environmental crises and emerging challenges. As a cross-cutting entry point, capacity building activities promote the integration of the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs into national sustainable development planning frameworks, sharing lessons learned and good practices through workshops and related events.

The Institute’s activities also connect the 2030 Agenda and other internationally agreed development goals with selected sectoral areas, among them, quality education, gender equality, decent economic growth, sustainable cities and communities, climate change, and promotion of micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs). Activities seek to promote cross-cutting approaches and the value of stakeholder engagement in planning and decision-making.

Education for Sustainable Development

The Education for Sustainable Development Program is a global initiative of UNU that aims to engage students and the whole community in the global effort to achieve the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, as well as empower them with the knowledge, values, skills, and pathways to action to be effective agents of change today.

Samale Institute, is a sustainable development specialized institute in Mogadishu Somalia and we are entrusted  to lead and coordinate the 2030 agenda  which is international movement of eradicating poverty through 17 sustainable development goals by 2030. Education is essential to achieve all these goals. SDGs have their own dedicated goal 4, which aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable  quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.”
