Sustainable development goals


Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the United Nations has initiated along with almost all states in the world in 2000 aimed to find solution for basic problems of human being across the world.

Time for the initiative is going to run out for the MDGs in 2015, and remarkable way could not be taken up until now. Instead, a new initiative has been launched that called ‘sustainable development goals’ to solve the said troubles.

When we made a comparison between the beginning of MDGs and today, we see that there is no significant advancement in solving the problems. There is still one million people suffer from hunger and malnutrition. Also another some one billion cannot access to safety drinkable water. Some two and a half billion people cannot access sanitation regarding lack of hygienic facilities.

For this a range of huge conferences organized with regard to Rio+20 that held in June 2012. Participant governments renewed their strong political commitment to sustainable development. The aim of the goals is to promote integration, coherence of policies and the implementation of actions in the areas of social, economic and environment.

During the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development held in June 2012 in Brazil, Heads of State and Government resolved to establish an inclusive and transparent intergovernmental process on sustainable development goals that is open to all stakeholders, with a view to developing global sustainable development goals to be agreed by the General Assembly, according to the statement.

A broad understanding highlighted for completion of the

unfinished business of the MDGs on poverty eradication and other important social objectives must shape centrally in the SDG framework.

SDGs is foreseen should be action-oriented, concise and easy to communicate, limited in number, aspirational, global in nature and

universally applicable to all countries, while taking into account the different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities.

The aim of SDGs is to eradicate poverty, inequitable development within and among states as well as protection of the environment is amongst the most vital sustainable development challenges facing humankind in this century.

The issues will have to be addressed in a comprehensive, holistic, balanced and integrated manner.

Finally, in order to overcome basic humanitarian problems across the world, suitable situation must be installed. As for providing a suitable situation, the current configuration of the UN must be changed. As long as the imperialist structure goes on, waiting a whole solution for the basic problems does not go beyond being a dream.
