We agree that today sustainable development is a major challenge. Sustainable development requires meeting the basic needs of all and extending to all the opportunity to satisfy their aspirations for a better life.
We find the essential needs of vast numbers of people especially in developing countries are being met either partially or not being met at all. In spite of remarkable achievements and growth of human civilizations considerable population is still grappling with some acute and intense issues such as-hunger, drinking water & basic sanitation, extreme poverty, women safety, access to basic minimum health services, access to primary education etc.
We understand that the silent suffering and voicelessness of the affected groups further aggravates the situation. Such groups may include both human and non-human.
We agree that there is urgent need for empowering these groups by giving them voice and creating paths for sustainable and long lasting solutions.
We therefore at GNDP strive to work with a vision to be a collaborative platform for Equitable, Inclusive and Sustainable communities worldwide.Where the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals being our guiding principles. This is our purpose and ultimate goal.
