IPNLF and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals – our contribution

IPNLF publishes a new infographic to explain how its work aligns with the UN SDGs

In 2015, the leaders of the world gathered to adopt ‘Agenda 2030’ and commit to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 169 separate targets.  These goals and targets provide a holistic framework, applicable to all countries, with the vision of eradicating poverty and deprivation, growing economies, protecting the environment, advancing peace and promoting good governance.

The International Pole & Line Foundation (IPNLF) works to develop, support and promote socially and environmentally responsible one-by-one (pole-and-line, handline and troll) tuna fisheries around the world. Through its work, IPNLF makes an important and lasting contribution towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

With support from its Member organisations, external partners and funders, IPNLF has acquired valuable experience working to increase the supply, value and sustainability of one-by-one caught tuna. IPNLF uses its knowledge and experience to unlock the potential that one-by-one tuna fisheries can bring to the ambitious, integrated global agenda represented by the SDGs and to catalyse lasting social and economic progress that supports an end to poverty, protects the planet and ensures prosperity for all.

IPNLF’s latest infographic illustrates how its core activities, defined by its three-year strategy, align with the 11 most applicable of the 17 SDGs. It provides detail on the specific SDG targets that IPNLFs activities correspond to.
