Agenda 2030: UN sets goal for sustainable development, has 15 years to get it done
Posted by Ann Corcoran on November 24, 2015
This is something I want you to be aware of, and perhaps encourage one of you to delve deeper into—the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development”—which has recently added migration to its core mission.
I think that stalling refugee resettlement to America may stall their global agenda, wouldn’t you agree?This is all I know, the subject popped up in a tweet today so I followed the threads to this news from the International Organization for Migration which is the US federal contractor that prepares refugees for their move to America.
On 25 September 2015, world leaders made history by adopting the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in New York. This wide-ranging and ambitious agenda, which includes the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), marks the culmination of over two-years of negotiation and broad, inclusive consultations with stakeholders from across the world. [I bet there was no taxpayer rights group among the “stakeholders.”—ed]
For the first time, the issue of migration has been included in the global development framework, representing a marked shift from the Millennium Development Goals and a timely recognition of the diverse interlinkages between migration and development.
It is now up to the international community as a whole to ensure that we achieve these global goals over the next fifteen years, making the world a better place for all, including migrants.
We know that the UN High Commissioner for Refugees is picking most US-bound refugees. By slowing third world migration to the US, you are helping to slow the United Nations’ goals for us! That is enough incentive for me!
If you are up to doing some research, I’d be happy to post what you find!
