In 2015, the United Nations launched 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for all member countries to aim to reach by 2030.

Through our joint work within the International Coalition for Working Equids (ICWE), we are directly linking a healthy working equid’s contribution to the welfare of the 600 million people who rely on them.  

It is estimated that 112 million working equids (horses, ponies, donkeys and mules) work tirelessly to support families and communities by transporting goods, firewood, rubbish and materials, as well as water and of course, people.  The usually invisible working equid is integral in the prosperity of humans and brings great value to the world’s economy.
