Sheikha Lubna bint Khalid Al Qasimi, Minister of State for Tolerance, Head of the UAE Committee on Foreign Humanitarian Aid, has emphasised the importance of unifying international efforts and enhance cooperation between governments and active organisations, in order to create finance solutions to achieve sustainable development goals.

She made her comments during an interactive session organised by the Ministry of International Development and Cooperation, entitled "Goals of Sustainable Development and global funding," on the side-lines of its participation in the World Government Summit, which concluded recently in Dubai and was attended by about 100 local, regional and international experts, officials and decision-makers.

Sheikha Lubna stressed in her opening speech that the UAE has played an active role in finding additional resources in order to overcome development challenges by building partnerships between the public and private sectors, as well as providing innovative financing solutions. "These efforts have contributed to strengthen strategic partnerships, and investment in research and development," she said.

The Minister of State also highlighted that achieving sustainable development goals requires more financial resources than those currently relied on. She stressed that government funding will not be enough to achieve the target.

Sheikha Lubna said, "We have a long-term vision for new partnerships in an extensive effort to explore the resources that have yet to be tapped. This is an opportunity to find innovative ways to harness private sector potential, encourage donors, and collaborate with other entities that seek to improve the situation for poor communities and countries."

The interactive session included a group of mini-sessions and discussion panels. The interactive sessions discussed a variety of issues and came under the umbrella of the 17 objectives of the sustainable development goals: poverty, inequality, gender, health, education, food, water, energy, growth, employment, creativity, oceans, biodiversity, sustainable consumption, and human settlements.

The interactive session was attended by 100 people including officials, decision-makers, and representatives of various regional and international institutions. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
