The Lives and Livelihoods Fund
Four years ago, the world adopted an ambitious set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) designed ‘to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030’.

It is, perhaps, these countries that face the greatest challenges in fulfilling the SDGs.

Ship recycling regulations, adopted seven years ago, are finally gathering pace now.
