Global Governance and Development

Multilateral development objectives and targets need to be recognized as universal in nature—and, thus “de-colonized” in that they should not focus exclusively on developing countries. As an integrated framework, Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development must embrace economic development, social inclusion and environmental sustainability. This agenda places equality at the center as an ethical principle and the ultimate goal of development. This means adopting a rights-based approach, which recognizes that all individuals are equal in rights—civil and political, as well as economic and social—and that they should have autonomy, recognition and dignity. Finally, regional cooperation should play a central role in its implementing the Agenda as it is best place to ensure inclusion and protection of weaker players.

Keywords:   Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), United Nations (UN), Right-based approach to development, regional cooperation
