Eye Care in Developing Nations by Larry Schwab (1999, Hardcover)
So how, then, were these new goals reached and what do they look like? In response to the accusation that the MDGs were too narrow in focus, the SDGs set out to tackle a whole range of issues, from gender inequality to climate change. But what really sets apart the SDGs from their predecessors is their universal nature.
Getting consensus on such a broad development agenda was an achievement in itself, but the real work will start in January, when it kicks in. How, exactly, does the United Nations plan to do so? Goal 17 goes into detail about that. It allows for a range of measures, including financial support and debt relief, the transfer of technologies and scientific know-how to developing nations on favourable terms, and the establishment of an open, non-discriminatory and equitable trading system to help developing nations increase their exports.
