NEHMAP undertakes Multidisciplinary Development Research on Political, Cultural, Economic, Financial, Social, Ecological / Environmental. Peace, Security, Religious, Moral, Communication, Cooperatives, Attitudinal, Behavioural, Rules, Standards, Legal, Technical Changes Dimensions of all 17 Goals of the Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs as the overarching World Transformation Agenda that is inclusive of Addis Ababa Action Agenda, AAAA as the Finance Arm of the SDGs and COP21, Agenda 21 as the Environmental Dimension of the SDGs and NIEO – New International Economic Order as the Political Dimension of the SDGs.
The SDGs differ fundamentally from their MDGs predecessor. The SDGs are set apart by their universal reach, which obligates all governments – North and South – to solve problems at home and do all they can to overcome the challenges that face us all.
The SDGs recognize that all responsible – in government, civil society, development agencies and the private sector – must necessarily play a role, if we are to overcome urgent environmental, social and economic challenges.
The SDGs also represent the world’s first attempt to capture the breath and indivisibility of shared challenges.
The climate crisis, intractable conflict, skyrocketing humanitarian needs, biodiversity loss and contagious disease are among the interlinked challenges that cannot be solved in isolation. Overcoming one, demands tackling them all.
The SDGs recognize this and take aim at the poverty, injustice, insecurity and environmental degradation that bind and underlie today’s challenges.
There is a Pledge in the SDGs which sate that No Goal will be considered met, if i is not achieved by all Peoples in all Countries. Yet at as 1st Quarter 2020 Year 5 of SDGs Implementation, all 193 UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities; all UN Systems: UNO; WBG; IMF; WTO (ITO) Headquarters, Regional Offices and Country Offices as well as their National and International Partners are still in MDGs Mode rather than SDGs Mode.
If the SDGs Pledge is to be delivered in all 193 UN Member States in the limited time remaining to end 2030 target date, given the magnitude and complexity of work remaining to be done, the shift from MDGs Mode to SDGs Mode by all relevant National and International Stakeholders should no longer be delayed.
The SDGs constitute a resounding call to go beyond business as usual. Achieving the SDGs requires all-of-society changes to the way we live, work, and produce, consume, generate energy, design our cities, and more. This is a challenge for all countries.
SDGs are a global and national objective, not a partisan objective. Ultimately, to fully mainstream SDG investing, new products need to be developed. The financial sector excels at innovation when demand is there. If Government create Demand, the Private Sector including the Financial Sector will create supply.
To achieve the SDGs, Member States need not only increased financing, but also fit-for-purpose national and international institutions that facilitate economic stability and sustainable development.
Achieving the SDGs is not an exercise in achieving a collection of individual targets, but rather an exercise in collaboration and joint efforts within government, to a level that has not been seen before.
Realization of the SDGs requires the coordination of actions of different levels of government.
The United Nations is also working to make itself fit-for-purpose for the 2030 Agenda. But the UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities themselves need help to make themselves fit for purpose.
It is only after the UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities have made themselves fit for purpose that they could meaningfully support all 193/306 UN Member States to deliver on SDGs Pledge by end 2030 target date.
NEHMAP aims to meaningfully support 193 UN Member States: Governments – Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Headquarters, Regional Offices and Country Offices Entities and their National and International Partners to answer SDG and related How Questions and in ways that ensure SDG Pledge is delivered in all 193/306 UN Member States by end 2030 target date.
NEHMAP Initiative would operationalize in practice above Approach through the 3PCM, Policy, Program, Project Cycle Management Approach to National and International Development Cooperation (Not One Cap Fit All but Generic Approach which could be adapted to meet the unique and specific needs of any National or International Stakeholders in any specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional or Global location context.
