Trinidad and Tobago and UN Take 'Halftime Huddle' on SDG Progress

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are in peril. At the mid-point in the journey to the 2030 deadline, only 12% of SDG targets are on track. On September 18, the UN Secretary-General will convene the SDG Summit in New York to sound a clarion call for financial stimulus and concerted action. Leading up to this event, Trinidad and Tobago hosted an SDG Roundtable consultation on Monday, September 11 in Port of Spain. The mission: to pinpoint SDG priorities that need accelerated momentum to be on track by 2030. UN Resident Coordinator, Joanna Kazana, details the ‘halftime huddle’ conversation and what it means for Trinidad and Tobago’s next steps.
