UN: Open Working Group Proposal for Sustainable Development Goals PDF Print E-mail

IYCW focus on goals 4, 5 and 8

 

altSession after session, the 30-member Open Working Group (OWG) of the UN General Assembly has defined Sustainable Development Goals that are accompanied by targets and will be further elaborated through indicators focused on measurable outcomes. They are action-oriented, global in nature and universally applicable. They take into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respect national policies and priorities.

 

They build on the foundation laid by the MDGs, seek to complete the unfinished business of the MDGs, and respond to new challenges. These goals constitute an integrated, indivisible set of global priorities for sustainable development.

 

Targets are defined as aspirational global targets, with each government setting its own national targets guided by the global level of ambition but taking into account national circumstances. The goals and targets integrate economic, social and environmental aspects and recognize their interlinkages in achieving sustainable development in all its dimensions.

 

For the IYCW, at least 3 goals are directly linked to its international campaign, i.e. goals 4, 5 and 8 detailed below.
