About the Sustainable Development Goals, Jamaica

In May 2014, the Planning Institute of Jamaica (PIOJ) assumed the role of national focal point for the Post-2015 Development Agenda. This arose from its lead role in the process of monitoring the implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Internally, the PIOJ designated the Social Policy Planning and Research Division (SPPRD), specifically the Population and Health Unit, to lead the process on its behalf.  In collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade (MFAFT), the PIOJ facilitated the establishment of a multi-ministerial working group to coordinate the national process.
