UNDP acknowledges Cuba’s commitment to sustainable development

Havana, Mar 17 (Prensa Latina) Deputy Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Ivan Zverzhanovski on Wednesday acknowledged Cuba’s commitment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, approved in 2015.

It is very clear that it is a priority for the Cuban government, it is working in a very committed way and its National Development Plan for 2030 is very aligned with these objectives, Zverzhanovski expressed in exclusive statements to Prensa Latina.

When participating in the presentation of the project ‘Marti Municipality, towards a Circular Economy Model,’ the representative stressed that this initiative is part of that purpose, based on a new opportunity for collective economic and social growth. This program aims to promote the integral development of the Marti municipality, located in the province of Matanzas, towards a model of circular, sustainable and carbon neutral economy.

In this way, it is intended that the locality deploys its capacities and infrastructures needed to move towards local self-sufficiency of energy and food, in an economic, social and environmentally sustainable way, resilient to climate change.
