Sustainable Development Challenges   


Despite recent changes in the political landscape, Swiss and EU-member nation governments, NGOs and academic institutions must find ways to sustain opportunities to support Iran's effort to reach Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  Constructive humanitarian engagement designed to improved the lives of the Iranian people can help rebuild trust and bridges of cooperation for peace and regional stability.

Sectors linked to SDGs available for bi-lateral and tri-lateral project cooperation include:

  • Health care - infrastructure, advanced medical training, emergency response, accident victim transport
  • Environment - water resource management, urban air pollution, conservation of wetlands
  • Agriculture - drought resistant crops
  • Transportation - public transit and vehicle transport
  • Earthquake preparedness - emergency response, earthquake resilient building design and construction
  • Solar energy
