SDG Entrepreneurship Innovative Solutions Grants 2018

SDG Innovation Challenge 2018,We notify the general public about SDG Innovation Grants 2018 for Entrepreneur with ideas. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG Grant) present a universal call to action by the United Nations (UN) for all stakeholders to join efforts to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

The SDGs are the most strongly diserious development agenda to date. Reaching these Goals and meeting the development needs require substantial resource commitments.
