In September 2019, the UN Secretary-General issued a clarion call to all sectors of society, urging a decade of action on three pivotal levels: global action, local action, and people action, to champion the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Nearly four years have elapsed, and although progress has been made, much remains to be achieved, especially in light of the Covid-19 pandemic that deepened inequalities and hindered inclusion globally. The non-profit sector, deemed an indispensable link in the pursuit of the Global Goals by 2030, plays a pivotal role in this journey.

To maximise the decade of action, non-profits must streamline their diverse activities and areas of focus, aligning them seamlessly with the UN SDGs. By doing so, they will enable effective tracking and measurement of their efforts within the broader context of the Global Goals. Furthermore, they need to incorporate accountability, collective advocacy, and sustainable resource mobilisation strategies. While, hitherto, many non-profits have been driven by their passion and commitment to a cause, history has proven that it is not enough. Going forward, they must also operate with prudent governance, embodying a high level of professionalism and business acumen, with a steadfast focus on sustainable impacts, moving beyond mere charitable gestures.

Amidst a tapestry of diverse viewpoints, one constant truth emerges: non-governmental organisations (NGOs) must wholeheartedly embrace UN SDGs compliance, viewing it not just as a responsibility but as a transformative pathway to create enduring and meaningful change, ultimately enriching our society. This unwavering commitment holds the key to a future that embodies the spirit of progress and prosperity for all.

It is in this light the first training event for 2023 was themed UN SDGs Compliance for Non-profits. The aim was to introduce NGOs to key concepts around the UN SDGs, profiling their organisation’s mission and aligning it with the UN SDGs, as well as the importance of collaboration and sustainable project design and management to improve access to funding and sufficiency.
