UN post the MDG’s – Roundtable dated 13th Februrary , 2013Posted: February 14, 2013
Yesterday, i participated in the meeting of what the United Nations must do to the MDG’s ( millenium Development Goals ) post 2015 , when the MDG’s comes to an end in terms of the timeline .
I have suggested that ‘ without sustainable livelihoods for a family’ , MDG’s could never be achieved , so this must come at the forefront .
Access to ICT’s should be made a MDG
Improving life expectancy makes sense seeing the infant mortality and maternal mortality
Further , the MDG’s related to health be ‘clubbed’ and the definition be expanded to provide access to ‘ Preventive health’ as a MDG
Multi-skilling along with education needs to be put than the universal primary education as a MDG
Also, private sector needs to be involved in conceptualization , planning and execution . I further added , that , if the private sector was involved as a partner in MNAREGA and MRHM , things would have been different
Charity is as deep as profits …… time to work as a TEAM ( PPP), else ‘laudable’ goals will become ‘laughable’
