This year marks the 30th anniversary of Canada’s International Development Week (IDW). It is an annual occasion to celebrate the impact and successes of organizations and individuals working to help people and communities in developing countries, where poverty, conflict or natural disasters make for precarious living conditions.
For 2020, the theme for IDW is “Go for the Goals.” In 2015, Canada committed to the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and collaboration toward a better world for all. The 2030 Agenda, with its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), is a global action plan to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
