Irish NGOs at the UN Sustainable Development Goals Summit

Representatives of a number of Irish NGOs were invited to New York by the Irish Government for the Sustainable Development Goals Summit last week. Here is Oisin Coughlan of Friends of the Earth’s take on the SDGs, where he stresses the importance of developing an Irish Action Plan for the goals. The brief article also contains the interesting statistics that Ireland is the 8th most generous overseas aid donor in the OECD but also the 8th most climate polluting country:
