Commonwealth Secretariat

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development recognises sport as an enabler of sustainable development and peace.

The Commonwealth supports member governments, the Commonwealth sports movement and key stakeholders to maximise the contribution that sport can make to the SDGs in areas of health, education, gender equality, social cohesion, good governance and building strong institutions. By aligning national sports policy to the SDGs, countries can help maximise the impact and contribution of sport to national development objectives. This contribution can be realised through the use of sport as a tool in advancing development priorities and by strengthening governance, gender equality and the protection and promotion of human rights in sport.
