Sustainable Development Goals
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations provide a useful framework when thinking about how to improve and sustain global development. Each goal has a series of targets and indicators enabling the sector to measure and track progress. For many years the ALMT has funded a diverse range of projects worldwide aiming to improve the quality of life for children and young people.
The SDGs enable us to contextualise our work and show how projects funded contribute to global targets and therefore improve our impact measurement. The Global Goals provide ‘a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future’. This blueprint is wide-reaching in scope from gender equality to preserving life on land and climate action. The ALMT’s mission is to improve the quality of life for children and young people worldwide. This means that not all of the SDG targets are appropriate for our work.
The current ALMT portfolio contributes to the following SDGs:
1 No Poverty
2 Zero Hunger
3 Good Health and Wellbeing
4 Quality Education
5 Gender Equality
6 Clean Water and Sanitation
8 Decent Work and Economic Growth
10 Reduced Inequalities; Reduce inequality within and among countries
16 Peace Justice and Strong Institutions
Within the portfolio we expect to apply more funding towards SDG 3 and SDG 4 every year with specific projects contributing to other goals.
