Global goals ignore needs of the South

The SDGs replace the millennium development goals (MDGs) that were adopted in 2000. The SDGs demonstrate, among other things, that our leaders continue to miss the point about what the global human society desperately needs, or what is to be done to advance wellbeing globally.

The development agenda has to be about transforming the world we live in, which has become more uncertain and dangerous, instead of adding new goals and targets to the MDGs, which were themselves poorly crafted and not based on deeper thinking about the global society’s needs.
