How to create a sustainable development definition
The new Sustainable Development Definition, an official document that describes the various stages of development in different regions around the world, is currently being finalized and will be published next week.
According to the SDE, the document “sets out the key principles that underpin sustainable development across the globe.”
The document states that it is “based on the most recent research, research data and best practices,” and that “sustainable growth is the best way to create more jobs, raise incomes, protect the environment and reduce inequality.”
“The Sustainable Development Declaration is a comprehensive roadmap for the next 20 years, that outlines how to build a sustainable economy that delivers a sustainable future,” said Roberta Goguen, Executive Director of the Global Sustainable Development Network (GSDN), in a statement to The Hill.
“The SDE will give policymakers a way to make policy decisions based on facts and evidence.”
“This will be a really important document for developing countries and developing countries,” said David Deacon, Executive Vice President at the New York-based nonprofit Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR).
“If you are thinking about developing a new country, you need to understand how you can develop an effective sustainable economy.”
The SAD is a new version of the SED that was created by the Global Compact, a group of countries and organizations led by the United States.
In this version, the Sustainable Development Goals are listed and defined, as well as “all-important measures that will make a country’s development and sustainable development more sustainable.”
According to the Center for Global Development, the SAD “gives a clear framework for countries to start thinking about how they can best meet their targets and build the kind of country that everyone will be proud to call a part of the global community.”
“What’s great about this new SAD [sic] is that it’s more inclusive,” said Deacon.
“There’s a lot of information there about the SDP and how it’s being used and how to apply it.”
Deacon noted that it has been a long time coming, given the fact that the SDA is already being used to justify U.S. and European economic policies, including the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), which has been described as a “monopoly” between the U.K. and the U., Canada, the U and Mexico.
Deacon pointed out that the new SED is also being used by the U, U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres, and U.A.E. Secretary-General Agnes Callamard to “further define the parameters for the future development of the Sustainable Community.”
“If you’re interested in the new Sustainable Community, it’s pretty clear that it will be very helpful for developing country development,” he said.
“But if you’re a developing country and want to see how it fits into the larger global community, this is the time to look.”
According the SADD, the definition “is designed to make sure that the global goals of sustainable development are in line with the realities of the world today.
It is not a ‘best practice’ document.”
The document states, in part, that “the aim of this document is to provide a way for stakeholders to identify the various challenges and opportunities facing the development of a sustainable world,” adding, “it should be used as a guide for countries’ actions in a range of areas, including on the environment, sustainable development and governance.”
Deacons views the document as “very positive,” but said that there is a lot that still needs to be done to make it work.
“If we don’t do this, the world is going to be worse off,” he added.
“And that means that we need to do this all over again, and that’s why we need a new SDE.”
The Global Compact and the SADEF are the only two formal bodies that currently hold the final say over the implementation of the International Development and Sustainable Development (SDD) goals, and the process is currently led by a committee comprised of representatives from the SDD, SDI, the GSDN, the SDIA, and UNDP.
“This is a really ambitious agenda, and it’s going to take a long, long time to get it through the Senate,” Deacon said.
Deacons is hopeful that the Senate will approve the SUD at the end of next week, after a period of consultation.
But even if the Senate votes to approve the SDI and SDDP goals, Deacon is not optimistic that the SDAD will be finalized before the end.
Deans comments came after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing in December on the SDOD, which is also referred to as the Sustainable Agenda for Development.
According the committee, the committee is currently in the process of drafting the SDDA, which will outline the SD goals and the SD processes to be used by each of the countries
