Haughey supports Malawi links
Clare Haughey MSP has pledged her support for the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) at an exhibition in the Scottish Parliament.
The exhibition, “Scotland, Malawi and the Global Goals”, created by the Scotland Malawi Partnership (SMP), aims to create awareness of the SDGs in every constituency across Scotland and is asking MSPs to help them achieve this.
Scotland was amongst the first to sign up to the UN’s 17 SDGs when they were launched in 2015. Each of Scotland’s major political parties has committed to the delivery of these goals which will fight inequality, poverty and climate change in every country over the next 15 years.
Today, more than 94,000 Scots are actively involved in a civic link with Malawi.
Ms Haughey said: “As a member of the cross party group on Malawi, I am proud of the work that the Scotland Malawi Partnership is doing to build - and reinforce ties between Scotland and Malawi, and am pleased to have active SMP member Dr John Lwanda in my constituency.”
