President Paul Kagame is among dignitaries that have graced the High Level Opening of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Pavilion in Qatar, the host of FIFA World Cup 2022.

Rwanda’s Presidency has revealed that President Kagame also attended the launch of “Scoring the Goals” Campaign hosted by Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser, co-founder and chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education.

Kagame arrived in Qatar on Sunday where he attended the opening ceremony of FIFA World Cup 2022.

The pavilion to bring to limelight the United Nations (UN) SDGs is being visited by attendees of the FIFA World Cup 2022 from 20th November.

On Monday 21st November, the pavilion was also visited by the UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres who held talks with Sheikha Moza on topics including possible processes to mobilize funding to support education as one of SDGs.

The 17 Goals were adopted by all UN Member States in 2015, as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development which set out a 15-year plan to achieve the Goals.

They have been aligned with Agenda 2063 aimed at enhancing Africa’s self-reliance.

It has been pointed out that action is needed to address the issue of inadequate funding hindering smooth implementation of the goals, a situation that was exacerbated by the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic and the war between Russia and Ukraine.
