GOALS ARE PART OF THE MANAGEMENT PROCESS
 •   Clear goals help to focus everyone on what is to be achieved;
 •   But there also need to be plans to get to the goals;
 •   And there also need to be the resources to implement the plans;
 •   And there needs to be management systems to ensure that resources are used properly.

THE SDG GOALS ARE NOT COHERENT
 •   This is not suprising ;
 •   This is a result of compromise between parties that are in fundamental disagreement.

TARGETS and INDICATORS
 •   There is a huge body of work developing targets and indicators that are coherent with the SDGs;
 •   Many, of these were already in use in support of the MDGs introduced in 2000!

SUCCESS OF THE SDGs
 •   This will be constrained by lack of financial resources;
 •   While the goals are ambitious, the availability of financial resources is totally inadequate;
 •   There are mechanisms to talk about this issue, but little action to fix the problem!
