The High-Level Forum on Sustainable Development, convened by the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), is being held at the United Nations Headquarters in New York from July 17 to 19.

Serge Telle, Minister of State, presented the National Voluntary Review, prepared by the government, on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Objectives on Monday, July 17.

Emphasising the importance of collective action to transform the world through 17 goals against hunger, poverty, disease, inequality, ignorance, injustice, irresponsible growth, climate alterations, degradation of the environment, and the destruction of the oceans, he declared: “Monaco spends more than 1.1 percent of its revenues on official development assistance (…) and more than 65 percent of its financing to seven of the least advanced nations, in the form of donations.”

“(Bearing in mind) its size and with its means, Monaco wants to be positive and responsible.” Mr Telle added that the Principality has itself reached “a very high level of human development”. Monaco wishes to be an active player in the world by providing development assistance, he said.

“It is in our common interest to engage collectively in the way that the United Nations proposes today: that of Sustainable Development.”
