THE SDGs DO NOT REALLY HEED HUMAN RIGHTS; THEY DEHUMANIZE PROCESSES AND GO FOR RESULTS.
-It is here fitting to paraphrase the adage of seeing the trees and not the forest. As the world tries to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), most practitioners do not see the persons as rights holders. (Nury Gajardo)
The implementation of Agenda 2030 (SDGs) is not just a matter of better policies (CESR)
1. Better late than never, its implementation will require more holistic and more sweeping shifts putting at the center the issue of how and where power is vested, including through institutional, legal and political (non-) commitments to fulfilling human rights (HR). The hard wiring of HR in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) calls for a potentially much more powerful corrective move to fix the serious governance deficits that have emerged around Agenda 2030 since 2015. Current global and national governance arrangements are simply hindering implementation of the SDGs.
