Hariri Shows Dedication to Sustainable Growth

Under the auspices of the Prime Minister Saad Hariri, the "Multi-Stakeholder SDG Forum" took place at the Grand Serail in Beirut, organized by Global Compact Network Lebanon (GCNL), the Lebanese national chapter of the UN Global Compact.

The forum was attended by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Acting UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Pernille Dahler Kardel, GCNL President MP Dima Jamali, and a number of stakeholders from the public and private sector and civil society.

In his speech, Hariri said “Lebanon was firmly committed to achieving the sustainable development goals, through solid partnership with all key stakeholders, including the strong and talented private sector.”

He added that the government objectives were to first localize the ambitious global agenda according to the national needs, challenges, and resources and ensure an effective engagement and ownership by all stakeholders.

Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden addressed the audience saying "Prince Daniel and I arrived in Lebanon only yesterday. But we are already impressed by the beauty of your country and by your warm hospitality.”

“In 2016, I was honored to be appointed by the former Secretary-General of the UN, Ban Ki-Moon, as an Advocate to promote the Global Sustainable Development Goals. For me, it came natural to focus especially on Goal number 14,” she added.

In turn, MP Dima Jamali, GCNL President said "I entertain the privilege of welcoming you to our Multi-Stakeholder Forum which we as Global Compact Network Lebanon (GCNL) seize every year to celebrate our achievements and the achievements of our members in terms of showcasing concrete progress on the SDGs in Lebanon. Today I see crystal clear the importance of the UN 2030 agenda for a better Lebanon, and stand before you to jointly renew our pledges to continue to work and push the envelope in relation to the SDGs in Lebanon. We have a real opportunity to put Lebanon on the global radar screen in relation to progress on the SDGs, and I see the UN 2030 agenda today more realizable than ever.” 

The forum constitutes a unique opportunity and platform for all the stakeholders, leaders and individuals representing the public and private sector, civil society organizations and local authorities to promote multi-stakeholder dialogues, catalyze collaborations, explore innovative solutions to accelerate the SDGs in Lebanon, and work together towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and 2030 Agenda.
