Big Holes in the SDG Draft

Big Holes in the SDG Draft

CROP POVERTY BRIEF by Gabriele Koehler, Thomas Pogge and Mitu Sengupta

August 2014

The Open Working Group on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set up under the Rio process has published its Outcome document on the SDGs. Six areas have been identified that urgently need to be redressed in the next phase of discussions. 

Gabriele Köhler, Thomas Pogge and Mitu Sengupta argue that while some issues are to be welcomed, many  of the goals and targets are extremely weak. The authors point to that key areas like Rights, Poverty, Inequality, Climate Change, Means of Implementation and Accountability urgently need to be  redressed in the next phase of discussions

There is still time to fix the SDGs. A first great opportunity will come in September 2014 at the UN  discussion of the Millennium Development Goals. Once more, it will be crucial for progressive forces to unite behind the most important revisions to be achieved.
