The Inaugural Conference and Launch of the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development.
'Moving Decisively Forward on Sustainable Development Now!'
Malaysia's Jeffrey Cheah Foundation (JCF) and the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) Association are launching the Jeffrey Sachs Center on Sustainable Development (JSC) to carry out comprehensive collaboration on sustainable development as the global community under the leadership of the United Nations begins the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The gift of USD 10 million from the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation to support the collaboration is the largest financial commitment to date focused on SDG education and implementation since 193 members of the UN adopted the 17 goals in September 2015.
