2030 Agenda – Global Sustainable Development Goals
The Global Sustainable Development Goals 2030 Agenda
Itach-Maaki – Women Lawyers for Social Justice, together with the Heschel Center for Sustainability and civil society umbrella organization, Civic Leadership, is working to promote the 2030 Agenda in Israel, with the collaboration of the Heinrich Boell Foundation
As part of this, we held a milestone conference in November 2018, which was attended by 120 civil society delegates. (Link to view explanation of the Global Goals and the Ambassadors’ panel discussion at the Conference).
In July 2019, the Government Report, which is at present being drafted by an inter-ministerial task force appointed by the Prime Minister, will be submitted to the UN.
We intend to submit a civil society report on behalf of a broad coalition of civil society organizations from diverse areas of expertise and activism. The fist stage is to submit a position paper to the Government, with our recommendations on how the State of Israel should establish an integrative inclusive policy for implementing the 2030 Agenda – so that no one will be left behind.
Next, we will draft our civil society report on how the Global Goals should be implemented over time, while monitoring the government’s work.

Background on the Global Goals:
On September 25, 2015, the UN General Assembly, with the participation of more than 80 Heads of State and representatives from around the world, set out 17 goals to be adopted globally for guiding sustainable global development by 2030. Each goal includes concrete targets, so that all the goals together contain 169 targets that must be integrated and realized for the full implementation of the goals.
The Global Goals went into effect as of January 1, 2016, and all UN Member States are required, from this point forth, to report on their progress in implementing these targets.
