Millennium Development Goals (MDG) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG): Review of MDG achievements & potential of SDGs

MDGs were introduced by the UN between 2000 & 2015 with 8 goals. The Federal Government launch the Malaysia MDG Report 2015 on Feb 23, 2016. There is a need to note the achievements and also recognize the shortcoming to enable us to plan for the next level of implementation.

The global community agreed to the SDGs on Sept 25, 2015 at the UN New York Assembly. The SDG are for 2016 to 2030. There are 17 goals and as a nation we are working out the details for the implementation and monitoring of these. The 11th Malaysia Plan’s inclusive development, green growth and focus on the B40 have some direct relevance, however there are some critical concerns too for from a human rights and sustainability agenda.
