UN Resident Coordinator in Sri Lanka

Sustainable Development Goals are not merely a buzz word in these changing times, it is reminder of what our priorities should be. They are a collective agenda for all of us, and achieving them is about our collective future, our planet’s future. There is no alternative or postponing it for a later day. We must act on it together, and act on it now
