The terminal ending of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGS) with a claim to a ‘revolutionary but realistic agenda’ failed to deliver in any substantive way. We now embark on appraising and negotiating to implement a new agenda with the launch of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) in 2015. While there were 8 MDGs, SDGs consist of more ambitious 17 goals, and while the former focused on developing non-western nations, the latter now requires all nations to work towards a global development agenda. The UN claims that the SDG fund underwriting this global agenda is a game changer; so how does that work in practical terms especially when it comes to SDG5—the commitment to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls?
