Canada announces 10-year international development priorities, actions to advance SDGs

In an address made to the Canadian International Council, Karina Gould, Canada's Minister of International Development, outlined Canada's top international development priorities for the next decade. 

Canada will continue to work to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and "reshape the international order" to better support the "world’s most vulnerable people" through: 

  1. Continuing to take a feminist approach;
  2. Leading in global health to develop an approach that "delivers for everyone";
  3. Taking ownership over what Canada can do to fight the climate crisis; and
  4. Focusing efforts on democratic governance, transparency, and accountability to uphold human rights, civil liberties, freedom of expression, and a free press.
