Participating countries

The "Hack the Goals" movement is organised by the enthusiastic Enabel teams, together with partnering innovation hubs, in 6 countries: Belgium, Morocco, Niger, Palestinian Territory, Senegal and Uganda. 

 

Enabel strives to enhance the impact of the Belgian Development Cooperation, to share expertise with partner countries and to strengthen networks and public partnerships for sustainable development.

 

The Belgian development agency has in-house experts in various areas such as health care, education, agriculture, governance, digitisation, infrastructure, water and environment, and provides support to countries in a number of these key sectors.

 

Hack the Goals supports each country office to identify challenges for their "Hack the Goals" hackathon based on their knowledge of these topics and their experience in supporting the achievement of the related SDGs. The design concepts identified and developed during the "Hack the Goals" hackathons will further strengthen the global efforts for the Sustainable Development Goals.  

 

The challenges identified by the countries are shared below. Morocco and Uganda are still in the identification process. In the meantime, you can learn more about the SDGs to which the challenges of their hackathons will relate.
