Harare 01August 2017(News of the South) – Government has called on, private sector partnership in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) agenda 2030.


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.


Addressing delegates in Harare last week, Labour and Social welfare Deputy Minister Tapiwa Matangaidze said private sector can play a crucial role in the achievement of SDGs.


“It was correctly reasoned that there is simply no way that aid, government and civil society programming alone is going to provide the skills, financing and governance required for all countries to achieve the SDGs.


“There is need therefore to recognise the need for the private sector to be a central player in achievement of SDGs.



“The SDGs are ambitious and will require coordinated action from the public and private sectors if they are to be achieved.


“Several of the goals, such as those on ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns, taking urging action to combat climate change and promote sustainable growth, have direct relevance to the private sector.


“Other SDGs, such as ending poverty or ending hunger, also hinge on private sector contributions,” he said.


He said the successful implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals contributes to the socio-economic development in Zimbabwe.

“Again it was realised that these 12 prioritised SDGs will be essential for further socio-economic development progress,” he said.


Of the 17 SDGs, Zimbabwe has prioritised 12 SDGs due to the limits on the resources to implement all the SDGs.
