October 12, 2016, 12:19 pm

Kuwait is fully committed to achieve the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through executing several projects, said Kuwaiti political researcher Heba Sabah Al-Nasser Al-Sabah.

Kuwait strongly believes in creating international partnerships to help less developed countries achieve sustainable development by 2030, said Al-Sabah in a speech at the Second Committee of the 71st session of the UN General Assembly late Tuesday.

Kuwait, having participated in setting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, is also working on achieving the UN's plan by developing the social, economic and environmental sectors, she said. Meanwhile, Al-Sabah stressed on the importance of joining efforts to fight climate change in accordance with the Paris Agreement, set to be implemented in November.

As part of its commitment to the SDGs, Kuwait is focusing on using renewable energy including the solar energy, finding different sources of power and reducing emissions. Using renewable energy will reduce 15 percent of Kuwait's energy needs by 2030, she added.
