The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) define the world we want. They apply to all nations and mean, quite simply, to ensure that no one is left behind. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals are the “2030 Agenda“, the map of the world we seek.

The Pacific Disability Forum works closely with its partners to ensure that the thematic areas of work for the Forum, which fall under the SDG, are covered. The Pacific Disability Forum and its members continuously calls on all countries to strengthen their efforts to implement the CRPD and inclusive SDGs in close cooperation with Organisations of Persons with Disabilities.
Every four years, the Pacific Disability Forum releases a comprehensive report on the implementation of the SDG-CRPD in the Pacific Region.
A comprehensive Report is expected to be launched later this year reflecting the progress of CRPD and SDG implementation in Pacific Island countries. However for the 7th Pacific Conference on Disability, an executive summary was launched.
In 2018, a full comprehensive Report was launched, titled “From Recognition to Realisation of Rights: Furthering Effective Partnership for an Inclusive Pacific 2030”
