Sustainable Goal of the Month Jan 2021: Decade of Action!
Due to Covid-19 today’s world needs immediate action to get communities around the earth back on their feet and the only way to do this is by helping each other. Even before COVID-19 billions of people around the world were suffering war, hunger, no clean water, climate migration, unemployment, desertification of farms lands. But now a new wave of famine could sweep the globe, said the head of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and warns the global hunger crisis caused by conflict, now compounded COVID-19, is moving into a dangerous phase that threatens to overwhelms nations. Local communities here in America and around the world are food insecure. It is time to act to end hunger in America’s local communities and communities around the world.
The Local Peace Economy joins the United Nations in its fight against hunger and its call for a Decade of Action to transform the world by 2030. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development 17 goals, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future.
The Decade of Action will…
Mobilize everyone, everywhere. We will work to create an unstoppable force linked to the Global Goals. We will identify risks to ensure no one is left behind. This requires each of us to take action—individually and collectively, locally and globally.
Demand urgency and ambition. We must be the generation to end extreme poverty, win the race against climate change and conquer injustice and gender inequality. We will hold leaders to account and point to what is possible when action delivers results.
Supercharge ideas to solutions. We will shine a light on solutions that expand access and demonstrate the possibilities of ideas. We will drive sustainable innovation, financial investments and technology—while making space in our communities and cities for young people to lead.
Why we are hopeful. The spirit of human endeavor has demonstrated our shared ability to deliver the extraordinary. The 2030 Agenda is our roadmap for the world we all want. The Global Goals are our best hope—for people, for planet, for prosperity, for peace and for partnerships.
Today, progress is being made in many places, but, overall, action to meet the Goals is not yet advancing at the speed or scale required. 2021 needs ambitious action to deliver the Goals by 2030. The Local Peace Economy calls on everyone everywhere to join us the UN and pledge: “We are resolved to a Decade of Action to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.”
It’s time to start on the Sustainable Development Goals. First we need to take immediate action to stop hunger.
