Are we serious or joking about MDGs
Aug 27, 2013

The millennium development goals were set for 2015. This was in unanimous accepted in the UN by all members state. There was supposed to be a watch dog to ensure every thing goes smoothly to achieve these goal. What puzzles me is that the international community is aware of the corrupt government to whom money is given to them for education, health, agriculture keep naming them and they take this same money and return back in their private accounts in the west and other parts of the world. Those same people who will take this money will say all is well in my country, observers will say the money was well spent. The population will cry but no body will hear them tomorrow money will still be sent to those same governments. Where is our conscience do we really want to improve on the lives of every body in the world or its just a slogan with other hidden agenda? when are we going to stop fooling our selves that one day we shall achieve the MDGs when we are not ready to achieve it? when will the real people who are in need be touched? when will the banks that are keeping the poor and suffering money stole by people who don't have conscience decide not to do so again? when will the people realize they have to hold those responsible accountable? when shall the common man start feeling what had been said years ago about MGDs
lets all go to work

It seems comparing to few years ago, less people in TIG are sensitive to Millennium Development Goals. Tig member pages shows lots of youth interested and enthusiastic about Millennium Development Goals but most of them do not log in and appear often. I am not sure if UN is currently capable enough to assign proper watchdogs for such purpose. UN is to be strengthening for such purpose although that may not work and probably people are the best watchdogs.

Emmanuel is right. Only two years left to 2015 and lots of work is remained.

There are too many tasks to be carried out for MDGs.
Perhaps the most important is to focus on the preparations of UN member states on their potentials in Vocational, Professional and Technical Trainings. It is in this sector that economy grows but water, air and soil get polluted and the climate change occurs because materials either directly or indirectly are used from the environmental sources. People involved in technical and vocational fields are in production, maintenance, repair and operations which most lead to pollution by current processes and procedures. So the most important is the training of such people.

Optimization of processes and procedures are the next thing to be done. Combining the sustainable training, processes and procedures will result in less or no pollution of water, air and soil and hopefully getting back the climate to its natural conditions.

UN member states and national governments are supposed to be aware of all these and they shall get lessons from the recent changes of the world that no place seems to be secure and comfortable for those who save people's money in personal bank accounts.

But do you really think they are not aware? i think they are and if they are where is the problem? what can be done to push these people to react?

My friend,
The kind of life that Ben Ali of Tunisia is experiencing is not living, it is just breathing.
The kind of life that Mobarak of Egypt is having is full of humble and sorrows. Who is willing to be in his place?
They did not recognize what is right and what is wrong.
The shame that Colin Powell feels due to his lies on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq is truly a bad feeling (I wonder if Tony Blaire and George Bush Jr feel anything at all).
Those who are not honest with people, will suffer exactly here in the planet Earth.

Great you mentioned names like Mubarak but with the problem of MDGs who is to be blamed? the person who came up with the project, the UN, the member state, the population? or just every body?

Dear Emanaual,
MDGs belong to all of us. We are responsible.

Dear Emanaual,

Instead of finding some one to put the blames on, I prefer to find solutions.

I suggest you to see what some countries are doing to enable the training procedures for achieving sustainable development.

The path to MDGs is not an easy task and it seems we shall emphases on training and education.
