The important role of NGOs in pushing forward the
sustainable development agenda has always been recognised. NGOs through their
activities are contributing in the planning of economic, social and
environmental policies. Such input is essential to move forward and change
challenges into opportunities for further social cohesion while ensuring a
higher and more dignified standard of living for all members of Maltese society.
In this regard, in 2017 the Sustainable Development
Fund was set up for voluntary and non-governmental organisations which are
actively involved in different economic, social and environmental areas and
which through their work these organisations contribute to the aim of reaching
the SDGs. The first call for project proposals was issued on 13 November 2017. This
fund helps to ensure responsibility so that everyone’s decisions and actions
lead to Sustainable Development including the civil society.
