Resource Description

The global goals we've made progress on - and the ones we haven't (Video 14'11")(Resource ID: 579)

TED talk with economist Michael Green: "We are living in a world that is tantalizingly close to ensuring that no one need die of hunger or malaria or diarrhea. In this data-packed talk, Green shares his analysis on the steps each country has (or hasn't) made toward the Sustainable Development Goals - and offers new ideas on what needs to change so we can achieve them. "If we concentrate on SDGs that we can solve, if we go for SDG a la carte and pick the most easiest SDGs, then we will have missed the point of the SDGs, we will have missed the goals, and we will have failed on the promise of the SDGs."
