SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)
The United Nations adopted these for the 15 years from 2015 to 2030
HOME SITENAV ALPHA CHRONO BRIEFS SEES capitals activities actors metrics SI ... SS TPB
17 Goals were adopted by the United Nations in 2015.
together with hundreds of subsidiary 'goals and targets' and 'indicators'
The SDGs are a refinement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted by the UN in 2000. These goals reflect considerable compromise which is to be expected for any global compact involving around 200 countries and impacting almost 8 billion people. The messiness also reflects the involvement of many different actors in the process of establishing the goals, including more input from the business community than with the MDGs fifteen years before.

An evaluation of global 'progress' since 2015 suggests that it does not seem to have been accelerated by the promulgation of the SDGs. Rather the SDGs have been 'gamed' to avoid the difficult challenges of practical equitable socio-enviro-economic-development implementation. An objective analysis of development progress during the period of the MDGs and the SDGs suggests that many of the important issues are more problematice in 2023 than they were in 2000. In many ways the SDGs serve to be talking points more than they serve as an effective development management framework.

Goal
#1.
NO POVERTY GO TOP
End poverty in all its forms everywhere
The absence of poverty results in an improvement in QUALITY OF LIFE
The removal of poverty requires a deep understanding of how the socio-enviro-economic system works and the decisions that have to be made in order to get to this outcome.
The idea of classical Western economics that efficient markets and self interest will achieve this outcome in the most efficient way has not been proven by experience, rather the experience is that economic efficiency as practiced in the capitalist framework results in a concentration of wealth and rather little 'trickle down' to the masses. This is to be expected when the dominant metric of success is money wealth with no consideration of the impact of financial wealth on society and the environment.

#2.
NO HUNGER GO TOP
End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition
and promote sustainable agriculture

The absence of hunger results in an improvement in QUALITY OF LIFE
Reducing hunger requires a multi-element coherent strategy involving the availability of food and the ability to buy the food for the family. The availability of food depends on the production, transport, storage and distribution of food. Local production may be supplemented by imported food which requires the availability of resources at the national level or within the private sector to buy the food.
A substantial amount of food goes to waste. Some of this waste takes place in the agricultural production phase of the food chain, a significant amount is lost during storage and then there is waste in the household. In total as much as 40% of all food produced for human consumption is wasted in some way or another
