Current Outlook on the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs)
While the international community is accelerating its efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015, the discussion on the Post-2015 Development Framework and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is beginning to gather momentum.
Existing literature on the MDGs points out that countries’ achievement of the goals varies significantly, given the general "one size fits all" nature of the MDGs (Vandermoortele 2011). Others also point out that MDGs lack overall objectives and perspectives on what needs to happen afterthe MDGs are achieved – namely, concrete plans and indicatorsfor developing countries to leapfrog towards sustainability are missing.
