Development Goals awareness-raising in Algeria, aided by UN chiefListen /
A day devoted to raising awareness of the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Algeria on Saturday, is receiving a boost thanks to the UN chief.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is due to be on hand to take part in Algeria's first national awareness day, focusing on the 17 SDGs, which were adopted by more than 190 countries at UN headquarters last September.
The day's events are being led by the UN Development Programme (UNDP).
Reem Abaza asked UNDP Deputy Resident Representative in Algeria, Randa Aboul-Hosn, to outline the significance of the day to the country and its various UN partners.
