When in year 2000, at the Millennium Summit, that the Millennium Development Goals,(MDGs), was launched by the United Nations, hope was rekindled once again in the minds of people of the world. But with just a few months, before the MDGs officially ceases to be, a lot of people have been asking what ‘NEXT’?

The nine solid goals of the MDGs, for the new millennium is suppose to last for 15 years. So, with the end of 2015 just being around the corner, the United Nations seems set to launch yet another set of goals. This time it is SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs), and it is made up of 17 different sustainable goals.

SDGs are a proposed set of targets relating to the future of international development. The Sustainable Development Goals were actually first discussed, formally, at the United Nations Conference on Sustainable development, held in Rio Janiero, in June 2012.

By December 2015, a scheduled change of all protocols, procedures relating to MDGs would then be those of SDGs.

A careful look at these new goals, would reveal that it is quite all encompassing.

Also note that another global development  framework from which templates are generated to replace the Millennium Development Goals is #TheWorldWeWant2015.
