Wishes not sufficient, but also action


The 70th Plenary Meeting of the United Nation (the UN) convened to discuss accumulated humanitarian problems late September.

A lot of regions across the world have faced with the challenges of famine, poverty, inequality, terror, wars, refugee, migration problems.

In addition to these global humanitarian crises, the world population has also faced with environmental problems.

These issues were the agenda items of the 70th Plenary Meeting of the United Nation this year.

The most of these humanitarian problems set in 2000 in the leadership of the United Nation by coming together with world leaders to reduce extreme poverty and setting out a series of time-bound targets by the end of 2015.

Including eight ones with this initiative called the Millennium Development Goals had aimed to eradicate the famine, poverty and other humanitarian problems goals by 2015.

Unfortunately, after 15 years passed the basic problems with which millions of people face could not be achieved to date.

Attention is turning to a new sustainable development agenda for the next generation to help respond to the global challenges of the 21st century.

Thus, the UN has prepared a new plan to end extreme poverty by 2030 and enhancing shared prosperity in every country.  

This means that poor peoples across the world would wait for another 15 years to get rid of poverty, famine and other humanitarian problems.

The post-2015 development agenda aims to transform the world. The agenda has an action plan for people, plant and prosperity. The agenda also seeks to strengthen universal peace in large freedom.

With this new agenda, poverty will be eradicated in its all forms including extreme poverty regarded as the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.

“We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world on to a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind,” the United Nation says.

Seemingly, this declaration of the UN is full of goodwill and hopeful for the new sustainable agenda.

But, when we have looked at the pervious sustainable agenda which was set in 2000 to remove basic disputes of human beings, we see that no remarkable advancement in terms of poverty, hunger, peace items. Even some of these issues have gone into the worst situation.

So, in order to be successful in the new sustainable agenda the UN should go towards some radical changes in its own structure, otherwise the new version of the millennium development goals could not be achieved once again.

Wishes and desires are not sufficient to overcome huge problems of the world. The indispensable criterion is to set the necessary infrastructure to realize these objectives.

Otherwise, another 15-year would be futile and the current humanitarian problems could have gradually grown and turned an unsolved structure.

Furthermore, not only those societies which face lots of humanitarian problems, but also the entire world people might face these basic problems.
