Performance Management and Accountability for Effective Implementation of SDGs

By Prof Prajapati Trivedi Jun 27, 2016

By most accounts, the scale and scope of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is awe inspiring. A global agreement on this ambitious development agenda is an impressive achievement in and of itself and an important first step towards realizing the lofty vision. This paper argues, however, that unfortunately the debate and discussion on SDGs seem to be stuck on this first step with an implicit assumption that the challenge of implementing this agenda is not intellectually rewarding and somehow the great ideas embodied in SDGs will self-implement. This paper fills an important gap in the literature and offers a practical, actionable and proven methodology for translating SDG vision into realty.
