About the Speech:

As the world faces an increasingly complex series of interlocking crises, the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda is a call to action for countries to rethink their commitment to international development. In this context, Minster McHugh outlined Ireland’s perspective on meeting the challenges to international development.

This event was the opening address of the 2017 Development Matters lecture series, which the IIEA is co-hosting with Irish Aid.
