This is the first National Voluntary Review of the State of Qatar with regard to the Sustainable Development Agenda 2030 endorsed by the world leaders in September 2015. This report explains how the 2030 Agenda was incorporated in the Second National Development Strategy (NDS) 2017-2022. It is worth mentioning that the incorporation came at the same time as the development of NDS-2. Thus, the SDGs have become part of NDS-2. Ministries and other government entities, as well as the private sector, civic society, and research and academic centers, will support the implementation of the NDS2, which incorporated the 2030 Agenda goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda using innovation and scientific research in implementation, monitoring and follow-up processes.

This report shows that the State of Qatar has adopted strategic planning as an established approach to development. The NDS 2011-2016 preceded the adoption of the 2030 Agenda and achieved successes and realized many goals from that Agenda in different areas, including social protection, health, education, infrastructure, natural resources, energy, economic diversification, environmental protection, partnerships, international cooperation, development and relief assistance, and others. All this came to translate Qatar National Vision 2030, adopted in July 2008.
