President Akufo-Addo stated that “given your strong commitment to the 2030
Agenda, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to remain as co-chair of the
SDGs Advocates for an additional two years, until 31st December

Sustainable Development Goals adopted by world leaders in September 2015.

With a mandate to support the
Secretary-General in his efforts to generate momentum and commitment to achieve
the SDGs by 2030, the Advocates have been working to promote the universal
sustainable development agenda, to raise awareness of the integrated nature of
the SDGs, and to foster the engagement of new stakeholders in the
implementation of these Goals.
