June 2011 | 12 pages

This IBON policy brief conducts a quick review of what was then the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), their inherent limitations, and their reasons for failure. It also discusses the basic premise that Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can contribute to sustainable development only if they address the structural causes of poverty and unsustainable development, which means addressing the three pillars of sustainable development. Finally, this paper outlines the principles, goals, and implementation process that must guide SDGs if global efforts to attain them are to succeed.
