Shared Interest works in partnership on an international level with organisations that share our values. These partnerships help us make meaningful contributions towards the achievement of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
We believe our work contributes to the attainment of specific Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from the 17 SDGs agreed by the United Nations in 2015 as goals for building a better world by 2030. Last year, we started exploring in detail with our partners, which SDGs they felt aligned with our work. We spoke to the Council on Smallholder Agricultural Finance (CSAF) and the World Fair Trade Organisation (WFTO). This year, we spoke to representatives from the Fairtrade Foundation and the Latin America Fairtrade Network, CLAC, to explore our partnership and discuss the role of the SDGs.
Overall, we believe that five of the SDGs are particularly embedded in Shared Interest’s mission and values:
1. No Poverty
5. Gender Equality
8. Decent work and Economic Growth
12. Responsible Consumption and Production
17. Partnership for the Goals.
Working towards these goals gives purpose to our partnerships and helps demonstrate how we are part of the wider movement towards ending global poverty.
