The Jamaica Pavilion during SDG Week at Expo 2020 Dubai will mark and celebrate the Global Goals by promoting a unique Jamaican concept of Sustain-a-Livity. Sustain-a-Livity, developed by the Jamaica Special Economic Zone Authority (JSEZA), embraces the United Nations Industrial Development Organization’s Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development principles: Advancing Economic Competitiveness (Economic); Creating Shared Prosperity (Social); Safeguarding the Environment (Environmental); and the JSEZA has added Supporting the Rule of Law, Transparency and Accountability (Governance).“Tourism is one of the main catalysts of the SDGs. Our National Development Plan – Vision2030 aims to promote sustainable tourism in Jamaica, which is designed not just to benefit the country’s tourism industry, but also preserve its natural and cultural resources and stimulate economic growth for the wider domestic economy”, said Donovan White, Director of Tourism of Jamaica.
