Global Sustainable Development Goals

The programme is exclusively available to entrepreneurs and initiatives looking to tackle one or more of the UN’s 17 SDGs. The SDGs are a framework of 17 goals and 169 targets (18 in Cambodia) that aims to transform countries the world over for people, planet, prosperity and peace, through a series of partnerships, by 2030. The goals include sustainable cities and communities, gender equality, affordable and clean energy, employment and economic growth, health, education, climate change and more.

“The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which encompasses the SDGs is an ambitious endeavour with the principle of leaving no one behind at its core. Achievement of the SDGs requires action and commitment from all stakeholders at all levels. The private sector, especially social entrepreneurship is central to the partnerships that are needed. Together with Impact Hub Phnom Penh, we are confident that the SDG Fellowship will unlock business opportunities and enable dynamic and innovative social entrepreneurs to deliver social and environmental benefits for Cambodia and the global community.” Nick Beresford, Country Director, UNDP Cambodia.
