a news article that discusses many parts of the SDG as well as some of the spin being used on Americans.
Some interesting statements include:
SDG USA, a nonprofit founded six months ago by economist Jeffrey Sachs, launched their first report card in March tracking seven adapted goals — or “America’s Goals” — across different U.S. state.
“It is definitely a hard sell. There’s a recognition that when you are applying frameworks in different contexts, you don’t want to walk in and say, ‘This is what the U.N. says you should be doing.’ You have to be smart in choosing the language and we are trying to be sensitive to that,” Cain said.
Meanwhile, there is also continued pressure on U.S. foundations to consider the Global Goals.
“Instead of spending time designing your own indicators and creating your own goals to track your progress, it makes a lot of sense to adopt something that people already know about, that is universally accepted and validated by the United Nations,” Ross said.
