Education in Pakistan → MCQs → Sustainable Development Goals

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are 17 goals set by the United Nations General Assembly. The goals address the global challenges related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice to be tackled by 2030.

Pakistan devised a national framework for localization of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at district level to improve public social services. Goal 4 of SDGs covers the education related framework to improve the education system. Pakistan’s federal minister of planning, development and reform said, “We believe that SDGs agenda for development is not an international agenda; it is our own agenda. It reflects our ambition and desire to give our people better quality of life. Therefore, we must take ownership of SDGs with complete devotion and passion“.
