The role of women in peacebuilding is immense. The United Nations Security Council Resolutions (S/RES) 1325, 1888, 1889, 1820 and 2106 reaffirm the key role women can play in re-establishing the fabric of a recovering society and stresses the need for their involvement in the development and implementation of post-conflict strategies.
Governments and increasingly other actors such as international and non-governmental organizations use multilateral conferences as a means to achieve important policy objectives. As the number of conferences and meetings has risen considerably over the past twenty years, the number of government officers and other stakeholders involved in conference processes has also increased significantly.
Tourism is one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world, experiencing tremendous growth over the decades. The number of international tourist arrivals has steadily increased reaching 1,186 million, occupying 10% of global GDP and creating one in every 11 jobs worldwide in 2015.
In Asia, where rapid urbanization and regional development are actively taking place, there is a growing need for sustainable development due to excessive energy use, deforestation, and poor quality of life.
- In the age of sustainable development goals (SDGs), KAIDEC and UNITAR Cifal-Jeju, as part of the annual International Development Cooperation Workshop, will organize a workshop on "Creation of Sustainable Jobs in the Age of SDGs".
- The SDGs are a major agenda for the government's major policies and strategies for the private sector.
The success of Agenda 2030 will depend on fully integrated societal efforts. As the United Nations says, a successful sustainable development agenda requires partnerships between governments, the private sector, and civil society. Moreover, the strength of these partnerships is predicated upon sharing and understanding the values, principles, and vision of everyone involved.
