UN Plan to end world hunger and poverty by 2030

On 1 January 2016, the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development — adopted by world leaders in September 2015 at an historic UN Summit — officially came into force.  Over the next fifteen years, with these new Goals that universally apply to all, countries will mobilize efforts to end all forms of poverty, fight inequalities and tackle climate change, while ensuring that no one is left behind.

 

The SDGs, also known as Global Goals, build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries, poor, rich and middle-income to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

 

While the SDGs are not legally binding, governments are expected to take ownership and establish national frameworks for the achievement of the 17 Goals.  Countries have the primary responsibility for follow-up and review of the progress made in implementing the Goals, which will require quality, accessible and timely data collection. Regional follow-up and review will be based on national-level analyses and contribute to follow-up and review at the global level.

How much will the implementation of this new sustainable development agenda cost?

 

- The means of implementation—including how to mobilize the financial resources to achieve the sustainable development agenda—are a core feature of the new agenda.

 

- In order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), substantial investment will be required, in both developed and developing countries. This agenda will require the mobilization of significant resources—in the trillions of dollars.

 

- But these resources already exist. There are far more than enough savings in the world to finance the new agenda. How to direct investment so that it supports sustainable development will be crucial for achieving our Goals.

 

- Resources need to be mobilized from domestic and international sources, as well as from the public and private sectors.

 

- Official development assistance is still necessary to help the countries most in need, including the least developed countries, to achieve sustainable development.

 

Can someone explain this insanity to me? 

 

This has been written about pretty extensively but I had never heard of it before.  It's a progressive government's wet dream, the kind of program SJW Trudeau will have us financing for sure. 

 

They should just start making palatable green wafers out of high energy plankton from the world's ocean...that should solve hunger.

This sounds great, but not feasible. The bottom line is, 7 billion people need a lot of food and only a small portion of the population have developed systems of production that can consistently generate surplus. The brunt of the burden will be set upon these nations and their citizens, which will cost them a lot of money, and will not go over well politically. 

Also, foreign aid is famously hard to direct in a manner that actually helps the people on the ground and not just end up lining the pockets of some brutal animal of a dictator.

It's a noble cause, but I think they need to figure out how to make forced charity popular and then find a way to secure the charity from political piracy first.

The dumbest people on the planet are having all the kids and they want us to subsidize them.  This is like a bad dystopian novel.

 

I have no problem with charities tackling these problems because that's voluntary but not the public sector.  No fucking way.

The Economist shit all over this plan but I worry that our ideologue in chief won't listen.

 

" The SDGs are unfeasibly expensive. Meeting them would cost $2 trillion-3 trillion a year of public and private money over 15 years. That is roughly 15% of annual global savings, or 4% of world GDP. At the moment, Western governments promise to provide 0.7% of GDP in aid, and in fact stump up only about a third of that. Planning to spend many times the amount that countries fail to give today is pure fantasy. "

Its literally impossible to end poverty and hunger. If we pour money into the 3rd world things will get better, population will grow exponentially... resulting in poverty and hunger.

There is a solution to our problem (and this applies to global climate change, poverty, hunger). We should have a cap on the human population of our planet. We are at 7.4 billion and IMO should be around 5 billion max. I am not sure how you get this done though.

Just import them all into the West, problem solved.

Of all the 3rd world crap holes I’ve been to, the common theme is kids everywhere. It’s normal for 1 guy to have 10 kids in places. Then in most villages, any support has to go thru a village elder who will take what they want. Oh and don’t forget the occasional gang tribes that go and rape ladies, impregnate them of course. Yay, more kids...

These countries run 100s of years behind us so of course we will have starving kids and until the world realizes the West is the best we will always have these issues.

Pampered, Limousine, private jet riding liberal elitists dictating to the rest of the world how to "fix" world hunger while they have never fed another human being in their lives.

I would love to see any of these people trade places for a month with a blue collar person or a ranch hand.

They're doing that as well.  Our immigration minister recently sponsored a leglislative change that will admit people with existing medical issues so they can receive public healthcare.  That used to be a reason to deny their application but it's all part of Trudeau's plan for a more inclusive society.  These lunatics are going to bankrupt us all.

 

So what?  They found a way to get Africa to sink into the Ocean?

Yeah, but at least you're all be equally poor.

This.

“But these resources already exist. There are far more than enough savings in the world to finance the new agenda. How to direct investment so that it supports sustainable development will be crucial for achieving our Goals.”

 

That is a scary statement and wars have been fought over less volatile ideas.

The UN has been behind many one word govt agendas throughout the years. 

 

In 1992, Bush Sr signed an agreement in Brazil to begin working towards the plan described in UN Agenda 21. The following year or two later, Clinton began enforcing the beginning stages here in the US. 

 

Its a great plan to take away individual rights, free choice & re-establish a ruling class on a world scale. Thank you but no.
