On September 25th, 2015, UN member states adopted the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030.
It contains 17 Sustainable Development Goals aimed at eradicating poverty, preserving the resources of the planet and ensuring well-being for all.
Kazakhstan supported the Sustainable Development Goals, as they fully correspond to the goals and objectives facing it as a nation-State, open to the world and actively included in global cooperation. Our Republic has actively participated in the development of Agenda 2030 at all stages and has committed itself to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
I am among the 17 rural women of Kazakhstan who are Leaders of SDG-2030 on the 8 of the goal Decent work and economic growth.
To ensure sustainable economic growth, societies in all countries need to create conditions for people to have quality work. This requires employment opportunities and decent working conditions for all people of working age.
The provision of employment should be organized in such a way that young people have the best opportunity to transition to decent work. To that end, education and training should be provided to help them acquire skills that meet the modern requirements of the labour market and enable them to access social protection and basic services, regardless of the type of contract.
By solving the problem of employment and economic growth, we, as part of the world community, will be able to lift humanity out of poverty, preserve our planet prosperous for future generations, and build a safe and inclusive society with equal opportunities. All these tasks will have to be solved by all of us, our country, in close partnership with other States that have supported the global development agenda of the United Nations. No one should be left out of the problems affecting all mankind.
Irina Vladimirovna Gallyamova, Governor of Oryol rural district of Shcherbaktinsky district of Pavlodar region, Leader of SDG -2030 among rural women of Kazakhstan.
