Sustainable Development Goals consultation

In 2000, the United Nations (UN) came up with 8 goals, known as the Millennium Development Goals, which set out the agreed steps the international community would take to tackle poverty over the next 15 years. As we come to the end of those 15 years, the international community has been looking at the next steps for international development, often referred to as the ‘post-2015 development agenda’ or ‘sustainable development agenda’. Currently being discussed are new ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs), to be achieved by all countries by 2030. These are due to be finalised by the UN in September, and there are currently 17 goals in draft form. These can be viewed in detail on the UN website at:  https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org. 

The deadline for responses has now passed.  Please find below my response to the SDG Questionnaire, which includes the comments I received from other people:
