Sustainable Development

End extreme poverty, protect the planet, foster peaceful and inclusive societies and ensure fair prosperity for all. That is the core message of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Government of Flanders has participated in the creation of the 17 goals, and uses them as guideline for its international activities.

The third Country Strategy Paper South Africa - Flanders (2017 - 2020) is approved. The focus shifts from job creation and social entrepreneurship to klimate change and adaptation. The overall objective is to promote the transition of South Africa into a climate-resistant society with an inclusive green economy.
