Suggested revisions to Sustainable Development Goals

Early this week, permanent representative to the United Nations of the Republic of Kenya, Macharia Kamau, and his Irish counterpart, permanent representative of Ireland to the United Nations, David Donoghue, submitted the zero draft of the outcome document for the post-2015 development goals. The goals will be agreed at a UN summit to be held in September.

The document entitled ‘Transforming our world by 2030 – a new agenda for global action’ covers the Sustainable Development Goals and targets, means of implementation and the global partnership, and follow-up and review.

A key development is that it includes suggested revisions to 21 of the 169 targets.
