The Council of Ministers of Curaçao ratified the National Development Plan (NDP), which focused on five priority areas: (1) education, (2) economy, (3) sustainability, (4) national identity and (5) good governance and leadership. The NDP outlined 4 priority Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), SDG 4: Quality Education; SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy; SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth; and SDG 14: Life Under Water.
Curaçao must commit to achieving sustainable development through actions such as reducing inequality, poverty alleviation, improving education, strengthening national identity and social cohesion, strengthening its diverse economy, focusing on and maintaining environmental sustainability, and good governance. Consequently, Curaçao has expressed its commitment to tackling its development challenges through the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
