Excellencies,
Distinguished Delegates.
In the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs, we have made a firm commitment to eradicate poverty and advance sustainable development.
SDG 1 takes on this challenge head on: to end poverty in all its forms everywhere. Using the Multidimensional Poverty Index to track progress on the SDGs is not just useful but it is critical. Therefore, I thank the President of Honduras and the Multidimensional Poverty Network, and Dr. Sabina, Director, OPHI for organizing this important event.
