In a 2015 United Nations conference on sustainable development, the UN member states instituted a global development framework dubbed Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). The idea began implementation in the year 2016 to ensure sustainable and equal development globally.
SDGs replaced the 2000 set Millennium Development Goals (MDG), which aimed to transform the world into a better place. The transformation planned to take the planet halfway to eradicating hunger and other menaces by 2015; however, SDG aims to eliminate the problems completely by 2030. Although the framework’s development was a success, the story isn’t the same since many member states are not cooperating in their achievement.
The UAS for SDG Achievement
A new nation is rising, a country working to transform the world and foster the SDG achievement, UAS. The United Allied States takes a globalism approach in governing, therefore ensuring uniform global growth. It’s a blockchain-based government, thus has a broader reach providing complete freedom and equality to citizens. People of all colors will get equal treatment and the privilege of living as they please. Moreover, the UAS is the first nation assuring the achievement of all SDGs globally.
Zero Poverty and Hunger Goals
There are around 10% globally living below the extreme poverty measure of $2 a day; thus, poverty eradication is the first SDG. Hunger takes the 2nd spot since approximately 827 million people globally use undernourished food or lack thereof. The slow pace currently taken on SDGs achievement makes it impossible to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030.
UAS will change global poverty and hunger problems by providing job opportunities to all citizens. Moreover, it allows free-market options for citizens to create their businesses and earn a living. UAS also revives the global agriculture sector, ensuring adequate annual food production, thus increasing the food supply.
Health and Education Goals
Health is SDG number three, aiming to ensure that people of all ages get adequate healthcare. Inadequate healthcare leads to severe economic instabilities, as seen during the 2020 Covid 19 Pandemic. Early estimates on the economic impact of covid 19 stated that the global economy would lose around 2.4% of its GDP during the pandemic.
Education is agenda number 4, aiming to address the high illiteracy rates in developing countries. For instance, recent statistics showed that 17 African countries have literacy levels below 50%.
The United Allied States sets policies to help quickly achieve SDG health and education goals. UAS will have experts to introduce innovative health technologies to end problems surrounding the health sector. Doctors will get better treatment methods on the forums and learn from global medical experts.
To attain the education plan, UAS merges the education department equipping young ones with innovative skills. The government institutes primary, secondary, and tertiary education facilities to shape children globally for the employment market.
Gender Equality and No Inequality Goals
Due to the severe problem of female discrimination and sexual assault, gender equality is UNs goal number 5. Around 1 in 5 women face sexual assault, especially those above the age of 16. General inequality is also consuming the current society; however, zero inequality is goal number 10 of the SDGs. The communistic and nationalistic governing approach wrecks inequality in developing countries.
Fortunately, the United Allied States sets up policies to help protect the less fortunate in the globe. Moreover, the justice department will readily solve sexual assault cases to help end gender discrimination and inequality. Everyone, irrespective of their gender, race, and social class, will get equity in education.
Clean Water, Energy, and Responsible Consumption Goals
Research shows that around 844 million people globally cannot access clean water services with women and girls taking millions of hours searching for clean water. Access to clean water is SDG number 6, aiming to provide clean water for everyone globally. Moreso, clean energy access is SDG number 7, with the primary aim being using purely renewable energy. Another goal fostering responsible consumption of resources takes agenda number 12.
The UAS promises to deliver clean water and energy by instituting the energy department. This department’s main task is ensuring the supply of clean natural energy, especially from sources like water, wind, and solar. As it produces energy, the department will keep water and other natural resources safe.
Economic Growth, Industry, and Infrastructure Goals
The globe’s economic growth favors the readily developed countries, while the developing still struggle to break even in annual GDP and expenditures. The recent covid 19 hits left economists wondering if the globe is heading to recessions worse than 2009.
Although industry and infrastructure development mainly define significant economies, the world is yet to achieve the best infrastructure. Hospitals, roads, schools, financial facilities are still lacking in many rural areas.
Economic growth and industry infrastructure goals position at 8 and 9 in the SDG 2030 agenda, and they aim to strengthen the finance, transport, and commerce departments of the UAS government. Citizens will enjoy good road networks, banks, hospitals, schools, and the best judicial services, thus spurring growth in developing countries.
Sustainable Cities and Communities Goal
Homeownership is a sign of success and prosperity; however, a big chunk of the global population does not own a home. The sustainability goal primarily focuses on housing and is goal 11 of the SDGs. The UAS housing department will help foster the global achievement of sustainable housing. It will establish guidelines to ensure an adequate supply of affordable housing, thus achieving the sustainability goal. These cities will be self-sufficient with enough food for everyone globally.
Climate Action, Life Underwater, and Life on Land Goals
Research shows 2019 recorded a surface temperature higher than the 20th-century average, and the temperatures have been increasing annually, threatening life on land and underwater. The UN includes climate action, life underwater, and life on land goals to protect the current remaining animal and plant species; the trio goals take numbers 13 to 15 of the SDG accordingly.
The UAS government will speed up the trio’s achievement to keep the world habitable for everyone. The energy department is mainly responsible for maintaining a suitable climate. It will apply the reuse and recycling policies to ensure zero toxic waste disposal in natural resource areas. These policies will ensure good air, temperature, and water quality to protect life on land and underwater.
Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
‘Delayed justice is no justice’ is the maxim of the law aiming to ensure that everyone receives timely justice. However, that is incredibly impossible today, with many pending court cases, especially in developing countries. Moreover, the full achievement of peace is a hassle considering the increasing terrorism and criminal offenses.
Peace and justice are SDG number 16, providing timely justice and serenity globally. UAS will speed up the achievement of full peace and justice using the defense and justice departments. Citizens will enjoy maximum protection from terrorists and criminals, with the institution of the navy, air force, CIA, homeland, and space force.
Moreover, the department of justice headed by an attorney general will implement actions to enforce the law. Every UAS citizen will enjoy justice delivered on time and the services of good legal consultants.
Partnership for the Goals
All the 193 UN member states agreed to improve the citizens’ lives by cooperating to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. However, most countries haven’t yet instituted policies to achieve the SDG. Moreover, the nationalistic approach is a problem yet to be solved, with every nation focusing on its boundaries. The above makes the achievement of SDGs complicated. The UAS will vouch for globalism to ensure the full cooperation and achievement of the SDG goals.
The UN member states’ institution of the 2015 SDG aimed to improve global living standards. Although some goals have seen growth in the past few years, more has to be done in ensuring the SDS’s full achievement. The UAS government will end nationalism and foster globalism in its quest to assure uniform global development.
Moreover, UAS focuses on giving freedom and working on the policies of a free market economy. The guidelines have a significant boost in the global war against hunger and poverty. Problems clouding equality, climate, peace, and justice will ultimately be a thing of the past. The United Allied States is going to catalyze the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
