The world has reached such a dangerous level that if serious steps are not taken, the situation can aggravate, Azerbaijani Deputy Prime Minister Ali Ahmadov said at the closing ceremony of the Baku Forum on Sustainable Development on Oct. 26.
"Two important forums that have been held in Azerbaijan during two days - the 6th Baku International Humanitarian Forum and the Baku Forum on Sustainable Development - are wrapping up,” he said. “I think that these forums have been interesting for all participants."
“While implementing the Sustainable Development Goals, a brighter, prosperous future should be built,” Ahmadov said.
“Otherwise everyone knows what will happen,” he said. “Therefore, mankind simply has to take steps to improve our world by 2030 in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.”
“Today, the world has reached such a dangerous level that if no serious steps are taken, the situation can aggravate,” Ahmadov said.
"Therefore, all countries should unite their efforts,” he said. “Little time is left to 2030. I think using the remaining time, we will be able to achieve a change in the world.”
Held under the slogan “Shaping a New World and a New Humanity: Creativity and Human Development”, the 6th Baku International Humanitarian Forum that kicked off Oct. 25 brought together 581 delegates from 86 countries and 24 international organizations.
