Republic of Moldova calls for the full implementation of the Paris Agreement and increased international cooperation to achieve SDGs

The full implementation of the Paris Agreement and increased international cooperation are key to achieve SDGs, Moldovan delegation told the Second Committee (Economic and Financial) as it considered the item on sustainable development, on October 12, 2018.

In his statement before the UN Second Committee (Economic and Financial), the ambassador Victor Moraru said that despite positive trends, there is still a long way to go to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, adding that poverty and inequality affect the most vulnerable segments of society. Climate related extreme weather events are a particular concern, he said, calling for stepped up action to mitigate and prevent related vulnerabilities. It is “imperative to guarantee the implementation of the Paris Agreement”, he stressed.

The Republic of Moldova recently elaborated a long term, people centred sustainable development strategy, entitled “Moldova 2030”, with the aim to stop environmental degradation, develop robust human and social capital, and build effective institutions. The scale of resources needed to achieve sustainable development calls for increased international cooperation, he said, adding that States must use the unique convening power of the United Nations to foster partnerships.
