From Millennium Development Goals to Sustainable Development Goals – Results and Future Developments

Abstract: Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) represent one of the boldest initiatives of our time to promote sustainable development. Now, at the end of the time span for these goals to be accomplished, we can evaluate their fulfillment and the challenges that had to be overcome in order to get the intended results. We have to evaluate the results and the fulfillment of MDGs in the context of economic, social and geopolitical evolutions throughout the implementation period. As a result of the accomplishment of the MDGs, by leading the world to resolve a few punctual, but extremely important, problems, we can see that development is at hand when all the parties concentrate on the same problems. Our study aims to see what the goals were, if they were fully or partially achieved and what the main causes of the results were. We also explore the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their role in guiding the world’s development for the next fifteen years until 2030.

Keywords: sustainable development, MDGs, SDGs
