How to develop a global partnership for development:
-Develop further an open trading and financial system that is rule-based, predictable and non-discriminatory, includes a commitment to good governance, development and poverty reduction— nationally and internationally
-Address the least developed countries' special needs. This includes tariff- and quota-free access for their exports; enhanced debt relief for heavily indebted poor countries; cancellation of official bilateral debt; and more generous official development assistance for countries committed to poverty reduction
-Address the special needs of landlocked and small island developing States
-Deal comprehensively with developing countries' debt problems through national and international measures to make debt sustainable in the long term
-In cooperation with the developing countries, develop decentand productive work for youth
-In cooperation with pharmaceutical companies, provide access to affordable essential drugs in developing countries
-In cooperation with the private sector, make available the benefits of new technologies— especially information and communications technologies
Map of World Internet Use: One of the goals within this goal is to have more interconnection throughout the world. An easy way to do this is by using the internet (assuming people stop chopping up the undersea cables), but there are still a lot of places that have no internet access.
Map of Health Care Responsiveness: Development can't occur without proper health care. Health care systems need to take care of their people, because focus on development and growth can't happen when people are constantly worrying about their physical or mental health.
The Sustainability Song
An interesting song from Florida Atlantic University about sustainability. Things like this help to get the word out in an easy-to-swallow manner.
Achieving sustainable development is perhaps one of the most difficult and one of the most pressing goals we face. It requires on the part of all of us commitment, action, partnerships and, sometimes, sacrifices of our traditional life patterns and personal interests.-Mostafa Tolba, Chairman of the Commission on Sustainable Development
However fragmented the world, however intense the national rivalries, it is an inexorable fact that we become more interdependent every day.-Jacques Cousteau, quoted in "National Geographic"
There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.-Mohandas K. Gandhi
Sustainable development is...development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of further generations to meet their own needs.-World Commission on Environment and Development, Our Common Future, 1987
