Dog Population Management and Sustainable Development

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals intended to serve as a blueprint for moving the world toward greater peace, progress, and prosperity by 2030. Close inspection of the SDGs clearly demonstrates that DPM could play an important role in supporting the achievement of several goals.

This report highlights linkages between humane DPM and several SDGs so that future policies and programmes at the national level are shaped with DPM in mind where relevant. We conclude that civil society around the world must engage in advocacy that calls on governments to establish appropriate policies, programmes and adequate resources for DPM programme implementation at the national level. We also demand global collaboration and cooperation to make necessary resources available for the implementation of DPM policies and programs in those low- and middle-income countries where DPM has the greatest role to play in supporting SDG achievement.
