Sustainable Development Goals are available in clear language

17 June 2020

The website sdgs.by has been supplemented by the section “Sustainable development goals in clear language”. The section presents the preamble, the Dictionary and each of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Clear language is understandable for people who have difficulties in reading and understanding the text. It has a shortened dictionary,  simplified structure of statements, and the text is written and placed according to certain rules. 

The use of a clear language contributes to inclusion and the building a just society for all. The National Plan of Action for the implementation in the Republic of Belarus of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities for 2017 — 2025, approved by the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus on June 13, 2017 № 451, notes that to expand the information environment for people with hearing, speech and (or) sight impairment it is necessary to ensure the full perception of information provided in media, art, radio and television programs.

The section “Sustainable development goals in a clear language” was created within the framework of the UNDP/UNICEF/UNFPA project “Supporting the functioning of the architecture for the Sustainable Development Goals management in the Republic of Belarus”.  

Information about Sustainable Development Goals in the clear language has been prepared by the public association “Belarusian Association for Assistance to Children and Young People in Disabilities” by request of UNDP in the Republic of Belarus.
