Launch of the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development, Sunway University



The Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development is borne out of a partnership between the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network Association (SDSN); a strategic collaboration on sustainable development as the United Nations enters the first year of implementing the Sustainable Development Goals. Built on the Millennium Development Goals set previously by the United Nations, the 17 goals encompass a sweeping agenda to free the human race from poverty, realize human rights and gender equality as well as to heal and secure our world. These goals were introduced at the UN Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015 to stimulate global action over the next 15 years.
