The eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MGDs) were time-bound and quantified global targets ranging from halving extreme poverty rates to providing universal primary education by 2015. Pakistan signed off on the MDGs in 2000, however, despite all the rhetoric around policy, budgetary and implementation commitments, and subsequent efforts, the country’s track record fell short of the targets, placing it next to those nations ranked the lowest in the Human Development Index. Then, last year, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious set of 17 goals with 169 indicators set to impact seven billion people, with a single deadline of 2030, were framed on the bedrock of human rights, inclusivity and justice. However, they are yet another articulation of aspirations reflected in development terminology crafted in the halls of the UN and subscribed to by governments without always comprehending the level of effort and resources required. As signatory, Pakistan is committed to aligning its development agenda towards low-carbon pathways over the next 15 years. But skeptics argue that evidence on the previous 40 MDG indicators precludes Pakistan’s ability to achieve the SDGs. That said, the therapy being proposed is that countries should identify goals based on their resources and try to achieve them rather than opt for a one-size fits all framework.
