To Achieve SDGs, Global Leaders Must Adopt Policies To Boost Economies

New York Times: An Ambitious Development Agenda from the U.N.
Editorial Board

“…[The U.N.] faces a very big obstacle: a slowing global economy, which will require the leaders of developing countries, especially those in Africa and Asia, where most of the world’s poorest people live, to make big policy changes [to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)]. … That said, this is a worthy, high-minded effort. … Fifteen years ago, the Millennium Development Goals showed that setting ambitious targets helps rally government officials, individuals, and businesses toward a common cause. This time around, leaders everywhere will need to adopt creative and aggressive policies to boost a world economy that now seems stuck in neutral” (9/28).
