Blog Post Discusses Opinion Piece Criticizing SDGs

Development Policy Centre’s “DevPolicy Blog”: Easterly on the SDGs: utopian and worthless
Ashlee Betteridge, research officer at the Development Policy Centre, discusses a Foreign Policy opinion piece written by William Easterly, economics professor at New York University, on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Betteridge notes Easterly “slams the goals for being utopian, unmeasurable, unactionable, unattainable, and unfinanced, having ‘both too many items and too little content for each one'” (10/2).
