As per the adoption of the General Assembly Resolution A/RES/70/1 entitled "Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development", last September 25, 2015 the Member States of the United Nations recognized that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, its the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and its 169 targets demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal agenda. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environment.

The World Organization of Governance and Competitiveness (WOGC) is fully committed to support the efforts made by developing countries in order to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Likewise, it also recognizes the initiative of the Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon entitled "Sustainable Energy for All", as a key factor that contribute to empower other connected goals by improving the energy matrix of these countries.

As we start implementing some initiatives in the Central American and the Caribbean countries, we are convinced of the need to expand our efforts through the WOGC globally. The SDG's-17 (Partnership for the Goals) is an strategic tool for governments, civil society organizations and the private sector to join efforts everywhere in order to promote the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
