Animal Ambassadors

Animal Ambassadors for the Sustainable Development Goals


Giant Pandas- QiQi and DianDian!

In January 2016, UNDP and China’s Chengdu Panda Base announced two baby panda cubs as the first ever Animal Ambassadors for the Sustainable Development Goals.

The cubs, both male, were born a few months earlier during the week world leaders convened at the United Nations in New York to adopt the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), known as the ‘Global Goals', part of a bold new agenda that aims at eradicating poverty and tackling some of the most pressing challenges facing the world today.

We hope the pandas will help inspire people to engage with the goals, and raise awareness of our efforts to promote sustainable development around the world.
