The UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UNSDSN) has recently published a draft report entitled An Action Agenda for Sustainable Development, which puts forward 10 proposals for future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The document will feed in to the UN Secretary General’s (UNSG) report on the SDGs later this year, alongside the UN High Level Panel Report (due end of May);  the Global Compact process with the business community;  and the UNDG report drawing together  the thematic global and regional consultations (see the World We Want 2015 site).

The draft has been opened to comments and consultation until the 22nd of May – comments are being received at info@unsdsn.org; see more about the consultation here.

The 10 proposed goals, complete with targets are:

Goal 1: End Extreme Poverty including Hunger
Goal 2: Achieve Development within Planetary Boundaries
Goal 3: Ensure Effective Learning for All Children and Youth for Life and Livelihood
Goal 4: Achieve Gender Equality, Social Inclusion, and Human Rights
Goal 5: Achieve Health and Wellbeing at all Ages
Goal 6: Improve Agriculture Systems and Raise Rural Prosperity
Goal 7: Empower Inclusive, Productive and Resilient Cities

  1. The proposed ten goals should also focus on adequately preparing governments especially sub Sahara Africa on the importance of these goals as opposed being prescribed by international organization. Emerging world players like China, Brazil and India should be engaged to play important role in contributing towards achieving of the outlined goals. These countries are making huge investments in Africa and they cannot be ignored. On the otherhand we should also bear in mind that every time five years elections are held and they have a lot implications on the implementation. Another question will be what are guiding measurement principle at National, local and international levels.

  3. Universal access to high quality Early Childhood Development needs to be a core focus too.

    • There can’t be any sustainability if high quality Early Childhood Development (ECD) is not taken as priority in the proposed SDGs especially in the Sub-Saharan Africa where ECD in the MDGs is more or less like a child’s play.

  4. Why is it that MDGs and SDGs happenning separately? Is it possible to merge these two processes or atleast have convergence of goals and processes to achieve the same. Also, can both MDGs and SDGs include goal on life with dignity through ensuring livelhihood conforming decent work. Look forward to process indicatorsto ensure that the States engage with these processes through human rights based approach.

    • MDGs and the proposed SDGs are more or less the same coined out in another dimension. It would be better to assess the attainment of MDGs to see how far the goals have been achieved globally, examine the areas of lapses and determine how mend the lapses before embarking on another series of goals.
