The Transition from Millennium Development Goals (MDG) to Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)

The Millennium Development Goals where defined in the year 2000 and were meant to give the world stretch goals that would ideally be achieved by 2015. At the Millennium Summit in September 2000 the world adopted the UN Millennium Declaration. This declaration committed nations of the world to partner in trying to achieve a series of time-bound targets that are commonly known as the Millennium Development Goals by the year 2015. As we have moved into this year 2015, the world is starting to assess how we have done. At the same time the world is coming up with new goals to provide impetus for the next 15 years (2015 – 2030).
MDGandSDGGoals870x400Considerable work has already gone into determining the goals for the next fifteen years (2015-2030). These goals and associated targets are currently called the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Following Mind-Maps summarize the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The third mind-map illustrates how the MDG and the SDG goals are linked and also shows the how much broader the SDG goals are.

OGW-HRI-GWI - Millennium Development Goals and Sustainable Development Goals Overlaps

As I described in the About Bill portion of this web site – “As ideas are suggested, ridiculed and enhanced they may be retired or moved forward to the initiative stage with a web site of it’s own. From there who knows what could happen!” I’ll be creating a new web site (outcomes2030.org) to capture all activities, thoughts, initiatives and progress related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).  It’s a long term commitment, hopefully my mind and body will last until 2030!

I hope the images and/or .pdf’s are of value. The mind-maps already have more information behind each goal – targets, initiatives, progress… Will continue to update and publish over the coming years (all 15 I hope). Watch for more details in the near future.
