“This marks the beginning of our partnership with the United Nations in Nepal for the global cause,” said Yeti Airlines CEO Umesh Chandra Rai on Thursday, “we hope to inspire and mobilise other private companies to join hands in making the SDGs a reality in Nepal.”

The SDGs, adopted by the UN Member States, including Nepal, in September 2015, are a universal agreement to end poverty in all its dimensions and craft an equal, just and secure world. They recognise the private sector as one of the key partners.

“The United Nations in Nepal is glad to see our new partner for SDGs, the Yeti Airlines, coming up with an innovative way of raising awareness on the SDGs,” said UNDP Country Director Renaud Meyer. “Such initiatives will go a long way in familiarising the general public about the SDGs as well as creating environment for a wider collaboration and partnership.”
