Special Address to DCF Side Event at
ECOSOC Forum on Finance for Development, 25 April 2018

“Rethinking Development Cooperation; Rethinking Development Finance; Rethinking Global Economy; Rethinking  Evaluation; Rethinking Development, Diplomacy, Defence, Democracy, Data and Digitization; Rethinking Communication, Rethinking Cooperatives and Rethinking Multi Stakeholder Partnerships / Platforms, MSPs and Lobbying as Force for Good as Foundation for Achieving increasing Convergence between 2030 Transformation Agenda – AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 Vision Intention and Reality in each Community in each of 306/193 UN Member States for Delivery on SDG Pledge by Target Date”.

Introduction

The DCF side event on 25 April 2018, at the margins of the ECOSOC Forum on Financing for Development provides space for stakeholders to discuss the preliminary findings of the DCF Survey on the state of play in effectiveness of international development cooperation.

Now in its fifth round, the biennial DCF Survey supports dialogue and mutual learning. It serves to improve coordination, transparency and alignment of development cooperation with sustainable development strategies that are country-owned and country-led. Its findings inform the work of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Financing for Development as well as the deliberations in the DCF.

The DCF side event will focus on the role of national development cooperation policies in getting better results for sustainable development. The briefing segment will feature key preliminary findings from the survey exercise as well as inputs from government and parliamentary perspectives. This will set the stage for interactive dialogue among panelists and meeting participants. The meeting will conclude with an informal summary highlighting the main points of the discussions and specific action-oriented proposals or ideas.

The 2018 Development Cooperation Forum will take place at United Nations Headquarters in New York on 21-22 May 2018. The DCF is the principal platform for global policy dialogue on development cooperation, open to all Member States and engaging all stakeholders.

The 2018 DCF will address the theme, “The strategic role of development cooperation in achieving the 2030 Agenda: building sustainable and inclusive societies.”

The 2018 DCF OBJECTIVES
Advance action-oriented global policy dialogue on key development cooperation issues:-
1.       Building sustainability and resilience through development cooperation
2.      Policy and legal frameworks for mainstreaming inclusive multi-stakeholder partnerships and approaches in development cooperation
3.      Getting better results for sustainable development: the role of national development cooperation policies
4.      Leveraging South-South and triangular cooperation for sustainable development
5.      Engaging the private sector effectively in development cooperation, including through blended finance
6.      Bridging capacity gaps and facilitating technology development and transfer, including in domestic resource mobilization and national statistical capacity building
7.      Strengthening multi-layered review and assessment of development cooperation

The 2018 DCF OUTCOMES
1.      The DCF will generate evidence, ideas and concrete policy recommendations to enhance quality, effectiveness and impact of international development cooperation.
2.      The Forum will promote greater coherence in development cooperation policies and among all development actors, through knowledge sharing and mutual learning.
3.      It will generate policy recommendations on the strategic role of development cooperation in achieving the 2030 Agenda and building sustainable and resilient societies.
4.      Key findings and recommendations will feed into the 2018 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and the Financing for Development follow-up process, as well as the 2019 High-level Conference on South-South Cooperation (BAPA+40).

Agriculture and SDG

The FAO recognizes that:-
1.      Food And Agriculture are Key To Achieving the entire set of SDGs – that is, the 2030 Agenda recognizes that we can no longer look at food, livelihoods and the management of natural resources separately. A focus on rural development and investment in agriculture - crops, livestock, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture – are powerful tools to end poverty and hunger, and bring about sustainable development. Agriculture has a major role to play in combating climate change. We agree with this FAO Position.
2.      World can End Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty by 2030 – that is, the 2030 Agenda’s historic commitment to rid the world of the twin scourges of poverty and hunger/malnutrition can become a reality – if we work together. The interconnectedness of the goals means that all actors supporting countries in implementing and monitoring global goals must partner and share knowledge. FAO already works hand-in-hand with governments, small producers, the private sector and other key actors in food security and sustainable development in projects and programmes across the globe. We agree with this FAO Position.
3.      FAO Ready To Support – that is, as A specialized UN agency, FAO’s wide-ranging capacities, long experience working with development actors and unique expertise in the three dimensions of sustainable development can assist countries implement the 2030 Agenda. FAO’s strategic framework is broadly aligned with the SDGs, promoting an integrated approach to poverty and hunger eradication, and sustainable management of natural resources. We are doing sustainable development, and are ready to align our work to better serve countries. We find it very HARD to agree fully with this FAO Position. Our engagement of FAO Entities including NAP-Ag; End Poverty; End Hunger, End Malnutrition; Partnership; Farmer Field Schools suggests that FAO is not “Walking its Talk” and in not genuinely omitted to delivering on its Responsibility as Convener,  Catalyst, Collaborator and Cultivator at specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global levels and this explain why fundamental issues that ought to have been settled by end 2nd Quarter 2015 Year of Decision are still outstanding as at mid 2nd Quarter 2018 Year 3 of Implementation and may remain outstanding up to 2030 ultimately resulting in delivery on SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date being mirage with catastrophic consequences for citizens in all 193/306 UN member States.

It is pertinent to note that SDGs range from the eradication of poverty and hunger, to the need to act for climate mitigation, to the promotion of education and gender equality, to preserving natural resources such as water in sufficient quantity and quality for human needs; that Food access, utilisation, availability, quality and sustainability are at the core of all SDGs and represent a pre-requisite to implement the 2030 Agenda in all countries in the world; that Agriculture accounts for one third of global GhG emissions, cover 38% of the world’s land surface (an area still in expansion), accounts for 70% of water withdrawals and 80% of desertification; that the number of hungry people is rising again and exceeded 815 million in 2016; overweight and nutrition challenges affect two billion people both in the North and the South of the world; and about one third of the food produced for human consumption gets lost or is wasted and that we cannot transform our world without fixing the food system first.
Coexistence of hunger and obesity, the overexploitation of natural resources and food loss and waste or three imbalances that beset the global food system: food waste (nearly 1/3 of world food production), hunger in the face of epidemic levels of obesity (2.1 billion people impacted), and unsustainable agricultural systems (1/3 of world grain production is used for animal feed, foodstuffs are used for first generation biofuels instead of feeding people - are the three paradoxes that need to be meaningfully talked in each specific community, sub-national, national, sub-region and regional location context if SDG Pledge is to be delivered by all 193/306 UN Member States by end 2030 target date. This underlines urgent need to fin answer to “How sustainable farming systems is being utilized as a roadmap for positive action and implementation and Evaluation of Sustainable Development Goals for Delivery on SDGs Pledge (No Goal will be considered met if it is not achieved by all Peoples in all Countries)?
It is pertinent to note further that in the Work to Make World Poverty History, Africa is holding the World back and Nigeria is holding Africa back. Nigeria’s Agriculture problems are worsened by Fulani Herdsmen and Farmers unending clashes. The Secretary General said agricultural and livestock productivity in Africa was under threat largely due to conflict and climate change. He added, “climatic shocks, environmental degradation, crop and livestock price collapse and conflict are all interlinked”.

Food insecurity, especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, is related to a variety of interconnected factors, such as extreme poverty, un-diversified livelihoods, weak institutions and governance, and, especially, adverse climatic conditions and social conflicts.

Climate change and severe extreme weather events could have a tremendous impact on crop yields, livestock, fish stocks and therefore affect farmer’s incomes (especially subsistence smallholder farmers) who become more vulnerable to food insecurity.”
Measures to tackle hunger in Africa include the harmonization of governance of food security, sustainability and nutrition; building institutional responses to reduce extreme poverty and inequalities; supporting more efficient agricultural systems; ICTs and technology innovation.
Additionally, it also includes supporting farmers to diversify livelihoods and reduce vulnerability; restoring land and increasing integrated land and water management to improve harvests; identification of strategies for building resilience to shocks through adaptation to climate change, institutional response mechanisms; and finally monitoring and reporting of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through generation and sharing of reliable data.
Addressing today’s food related issues in each of 193/306 UN Member States DEMANDS a multidisciplinary approach — from the environmental, political, economic, financial, security, cooperatives, communication, cultural, health, technological, legal and social perspective. That goal is to secure the wellbeing and health of people and the planet.


DCF and Delivery on SDG Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States
There is direct link between DCF Vision Ambitions and SDG Vision Ambitions. The Big Question is How does DCF 2018 help all North and South Countries to grapple effectively with SDGs and SDGs Delivery as well as National and International Development Cooperation real and complex problems on the ground? These are the pertinent issues:-
  1. If all 193/306 UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) and their National and International Partners in the Joint Delivery on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date (about 12 ¾ years to go), all 193/306 UN member States needs to better appreciate and recognize that achieving the SDGs is not an exercise in achieving a collection of individual targets, but rather an exercise in collaboration and joint efforts within government, to a level that has not been seen before and accept realization of the SDGs requires the coordination, cohesion, cooperation, collaboration and commitment of actions of different levels of government at levels unprecedented in World history and this DEMAND Paradigm Shifts in reality not rhetoric.
  2. If all 193/306 UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) and their National and International Partners in the Joint Delivery on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date (about 12 ¾ years to go), Oreland need to genuinely omit towards supporting all relevant Stakeholder Groups Members at each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context to Implement and Evaluate Policy Coordination, Cohesion, Cooperation, Collaboration and Commitment DRIVEN Simultaneously by 3 Types of Integration:-
a)      Horizontal Integration: National – All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States. That is 2 – 4 levels depending on number of Tiers of Government in the specific UN Member State.
b)     Vertical Integration:
i)  National - All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States. That is 2 – 4 levels depending on number of Tiers of Government in the specific UN Member State.
ii)  International - All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States in each Sub-region, Region and Worldwide. That is 3 – 4 levels depending on number of International Political Groupings of Countries the specific UN Member State belong to.
iii) Integration: National and International - All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States, in each Sub-region, in each Region and Worldwide. That is 5 – 8 levels depending on number of Tiers of Government in the specific UN Member State and the number of International Political Groupings of Countries the specific UN Member State belong to.
c)      Engagement: Full Inclusion of All relevant Stakeholder Groups in Horizontal Integration and Vertical Integration (3bi) – (3biii). That is all relevant Stakeholder Blocks in each Horizontal Integration level and each Vertical Integration level, JOINTLY Driving Structures, Systems, Policies, Procedures, Communication, Cooperatives, Cultures and Rules Changes required to move each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional and Regional location context from where it is Now (2nd Quarter 2018) in each relevant SDGs Goals and Targets (A) to where it needs to be if SDG Pledge is to be delivered by end 2030 in the specific location context (B) as well as FIGURING out HOW to move from (A) to (B).
3. SDG What Questions have been over answered over the years to date while SDG How Questions have been avoided or evaded. Yet without answering SDG How Questions seeking to Deliver on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date in all 193/306 UN Member States would be Mirage.
4.  Brexit disaster needs to be prevented in Ireland, UK and EU. We urge Ireland, UK and EU to appreciate that Sustainable Solutions to Brexit lie in full Implementation and Evaluation of SDG in Ireland, UK and EU. We urge Ireland, UK and EU to jointly recognize urgent need to:-
a)   Find answer to SDG and SDG Pledge How Questions is MASTER KEY to ensuring that in the 12 ¾ years remaining all 193/306 UN Member States Deliver on SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date.
b)   Meaningfully Support Individuals and Institutions DEMONSTRATING genuine commitment to effectively Supporting 193/306 UN member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary at all levels; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Headquarters, Regional Offices and Country Offices Entities and their National and International Partners to find answer to SDG and SDG Pledge How Questions, Implement and Evaluate these answers in ways that ensure all 193/306 UN member States deliver on SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date.
c)    Appreciate that Time is of the Essence if the Much that Need to be Done, is to be Done in the 12 ¾ years remaining and DEMONSTRATE this through genuine commitment to start answering SDG and SDG Pledge How Questions Now that is as from April 2018.

d)  Appreciate that DCF 2018 present a unique Platform to meaningfully address the root cause or primary cause Brexit problems on the ground at National, Regional and Global levels. While Brexit is the Overarching Sustainable Development Issues in Ireland and EU, Fulani Herdsmen Menace is the overarching Sustainable Development Issue in Nigeria. To meaningfully address real and complex SDGs problems on the ground in all North and South Countries, above points need to be addressed in each North or South Country specific and unique context.

UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Meaningfully Supporting 193/306 UN Member States to Deliver on SDG Pledge in 12 ¾ Years Remaining – Way Forward:-

It is against the background of points made in this Paper and earlier Messages that we again urge The DCF other UNO Entities and remaining UN System: WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities and 193/306 UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities to recognize that:-
1   1.  Answer to How Questions is DOING which is especially Difficult and Answer to What Question is SAYING which is very easy.
2. Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization without Practice and Action is EMPTY and Practice and Action without Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization is BLIND. However Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization with Practice and Action is FULL and Practice and Action with Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization is SIGHT
   3. Records show our Organization has DEMONSTRATED the Most Advanced Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization with Practice and Action and Practice and Action with Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization. We therefore deserve full support of UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities including DCF.
    4. Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization with Practice and Action and Practice and Action with Theory and Thoughtful Conceptualization is the Way Forward if correct answers are to be found to How Questions and if these answers are to be fully implemented with effective monitoring and evaluation as applicable in each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context; that is each Community in all North and South Countries in our World today.
    5. Now is mid 2nd Quarter 2018, Year 3 of Implementation of SDG. Yet DCF, other UNO Entities and remaining UN System: WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities and 193/306 UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities are still in MDG Mode.
    6. DCF, other UNO Entities and remaining UN System: WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities and 193/306 UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities need to Change to SDG Mode and work jointly at accelerated Pace in the 12 ¾ Years remaining to end 2030 target date, if all 193/306 UN Member States are to Deliver the SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date.
    7. The Type of Advocacy being practiced in the National and International Development Arena in the past and at present is not the Type of Advocacy needed if all 193/306 UN Member States are to make up lost time and Deliver on the above SDG Pledge.
    8. Records show that our Organization is the only One in our World today Championing the Type of Advocacy needed to support 193/306 UN Member States and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities including DCF to make up for lost time and Deliver on the above SDG Pledge.
    9 Delivery on SDG Pledge for Results in all 193/306 UN Member States greatly depends on Urgent Design of Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global Frameworks for:
a)      advocating and communicating SDGs pledge delivery;
b)      research: applying research and information for SDGs pledge delivery
c)      planning: adapting and localizing SDGs pledge delivery; „
d)      implementing: accelerating the SDGs for SDGs pledge delivery;
e)      funding: cooperatives and finance for development for SDGs pledge delivery;
f)       productivity: productivity and empowerment for SDG pledge delivery
g)      evaluation: monitoring and evaluating SDGs pledge delivery
h)      reforms: reforms and re-engineering for SDGs pledge delivery
i)        accountability: accountability and progressing for SDG pledge delivery  and
j)        bridge building: building bridge between the SDGs pledge delivery Lesson Learning and Lessons Forgetting.


In deploying these Frameworks, Country SDG Pledge Programming will aim for:-
1)      High Flying Countries to have all their Communities and all their Peoples achieve all SDGs Goals and Targets applicable to their unique and specific location context by end 4th Quarter of 2025.
2)      Least Laggard Countries to have all their Communities and all their Peoples to achieve all SDGs Goals and Targets applicable to their unique and specific location context by end 4th Quarter of 2026.
3)      Most Laggard Countries to have all their Communities and all their Peoples to achieve all SDGs Goals and Targets applicable to their unique and specific location context by end 4th Quarter of 2029.
4)      Consolidating Sustainability by ensuring Full Delivery on SDG Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States is Certain by end 2nd Quarter of 2030 and No Peoples and No Communities in any of 193/306 UN Member States slip or slide back from achieved SDGs Goals and Targets applicable to their unique and specific location context by end 4th Quarter of 2030 Year 15 of Implementation,
5)  (1) – (4) demonstrating the practicability of Implementation and Evaluation of Work Together Benefit Together as overarching Principle of 2030 Transformation Agenda – SDGs by all Peoples in all Communities in all 193/306 UN Member States.
6) Operationalizing (1) – (5) in Practice DEMAND an Institution is saddled with responsibility for Thinking Through and Thinking Ahead be relevant Authority in each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context.
   10.  The Aid Test of Credibility of Frameworks for Design and Delivery of SDG Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States is:
How it drives local progress in at least four ways:-
a)      Persuading and empowering decision makers to pursue progressive policies;
b)      Making local challenges more visible;
c)      Enabling stakeholders to hold leaders accountable; and
d)      Motivating greater coordination, cooperation, collaboration, commitment and coherence.
and How it Delivers at each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional,  Regional and Global location levels:-
i)        Better Agriculture Crops, Livestock, Forestry, Fisheries and Aquaculture Information Services, Cooperatives Services and Commodity Markets
ii)      Better Innovation and Creativity in Climate Change Resilience, Mitigation and Adaptation Solutions Management as well as in the Optimization of Climate Change Gains and Minimization of Climate Change Losses.
iii)    Better Trade, Aid, Debts, Anti Corruption and Anti Terror Solutions Management
iv)    Better Multi Stakeholder Partnerships for Driving Policy, Program, Project Interventions, 3PIs and 3PIs Training as One within (10i) – (10iv)

New Public Sector Management / New Public Sector Reform
The Events and Activities within above Horizontal Integration, Vertical Integration and Engagement need to be driven by New Public Sector Management, PSM or New Public Sector Reform, PSR Initiatives in all Arms of all Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN member States as well as in each of UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities: Headquarters, Regional Offices, Country Offices and Sub-national Offices.

Answer to SDG / SDG Pledge HOW Questions: Sustainable Solutions
[   
It is pertinent to note that finding answer to SDG / SDG Pledge HOW Questions is essentially finding, implementing and evaluating Sustainable Solutions to SDG / SDG Pledge Goals and targets real and complex problems on the ground in specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context. This greatly depends on Correct Diagnosis, Correct Prescription, Correct Surgery and Correct Recovery Management Interventions. Political Leaders; Public Service and Civil Service Leaders; Business Leaders as well as other Leaders – Religious Leaders, Traditional Rulers / Tribal Leaders, Media Leaders, Intellectual Leaders etc individually and jointly have Central Role to Play in this regard.


Global PUSH to Achieve SDG / SDG Pledge by 2030: Start NOW.

Given the Magnitude of Work that remains and needs to be done within (1) – (10) above and in very limited time – 12 ¾ Years, the Global PUSH to Achieve SDGs by end 2030 need to Start NOW through all UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Authorities and all 193/306 UN Member States Authorities  ensuring that all UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Events at Global, Regional, National and Sub-national levels genuinely focus on answer to SDG How Questions and related issues highlighted in (1) – (10) above. In this regard, DCF 2018 is a unique Forum for moving forward New Ideas, New Thinking, New Partnerships and New Collaboration.

Conclusion

It is difficult to imagine HOW all 193/306 UN Member States could Deliver SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date without addressing all Rethinkings identified in the Paper. As long as UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities including DCF and 193/306 UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities keep dancing around Development Cooperation Issues and keep avoiding or evading answer to SDGs and SDGs Pledge Delivery How Questions, achieving SDG Vision by end 2030 target date would be Uphill Task. The Global PUSH to ahieve SDGs by end 2030 and in ways that Deliver on SDG Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States need to start now and not wait till 2025 or 2028.

There are Bright Prospects of Success, should DCF, other UNO Entities and remaining UN System: WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities and 193/306 UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities meaningfully address points made in this Paper and in ways that promote and protect the Common Interest and Common Future of Citizens in all 193/306 UN Member States.

Global Push To Achieve SDGs Vision and Words with Action Agenda 49

Comment on UNDPAM WPSR Report April 2018

Introduction

The UN Public Administration and Development Department, UNDPAM World Public Sector Report, WPSR, “The Report”, intended for release in December 2017 was released April 2018. In June 2017 UNDPAM issued a Call for contributions from scientists and researchers in the form of policy briefs – concise, factual, and open access –that highlight issues, research findings, trends and solutions. The Call stated that:-
1.      TThe Report will focus on the role of public institutions and public administration for an integrated implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
2.       Briefs that meet the requirements of the Call will be posted on the website of the 2017 (now 2018) World Public Sector Report, WPSR.
3.      nBriefs content will inform relevant chapters of the Report and that the aim of the policy briefs is to summarize or highlight salient findings or arguments.
4.      BBriefs should address an issue, finding, or research topic with a bearing on HOW public institutions and public administration at the national and local levels, in a broad sense, can address the challenges of integration posed by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the SDGs.

The selected Briefs have answered What Questions and not How Questions.

The Report has answered 3 What Questions. However, what is most needed at this time is WPSR that answer How Questions in (4) above and related SDG How Questions. Our Organization submitted Brief that meaningfully addressed Sustainable Solutions to How Questions in (4) above (see Annex below). We perceive that this Submission contributed to 4 months delay in releasing WPSR 2018. The Report contents includes many of the good ideas and pertinent suggestions set out in our unselected Brief but rejected the most important ideas and suggestions on Ways and Means of finding correct answers to Public Sector Management / Public Sector Reform How Questions. This is a puzzle that UNDPAM need to resolve and as soon as possible, if the Report is not to be Motion without Movement and Vision and Words without Action.

As long as the Report is not speedily transformed into Vision and Words with Action and Motion with Movement Document, its potency would be significantly eroded and its Utility by 193/306 UN member States Governments – Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities as well as their National and International Partners would be minimal. It would be a Big Shame if the Acts of Omission or Commission responsible for the Report avoiding or evading answer to How Questions are not IMMEDIATELY Addressed by UNDPAM Authorities.

Approach to Achieving SDG in all 193/306 UN Member States

The approach to achieving the Millennium Development Goal, MDGs on halving the number of people living on less than USD 1 a day by 2015 had some shortcomings. Also the MDGs do not directly address inequality problems.

It is pertinent to note that Where poverty has been reduced successfully and sustainably, governments used policy interventions to facilitate [employment-centered] structural transformations of their economies. They invested substantially in infrastructure; channelled credit to specific productive activities; and pursued well managed industrial and agricultural policies, as well as social policies that improved the skill levels and welfare of the population and that Contemporary poverty reduction strategies have increasingly focused on ‘targeting the poor’. Such approaches often fail to consider key institutional, policy and political dimensions that may be both causes of poverty and inequality, and obstacles to their reduction",

The Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs adopted by World Leaders in September 2015 was intended to address MDGs shortcomings. However, in 2nd Quarter 2018, Year 3 of Implementation, it is clear that MDGs shortcomings and failed approaches are being repeated. With 12 ¾ Years to go to end 2030 target date for delivery on SDGs and SDGs Pledge, it is clear that without vigorous response to remove the shortcomings driven by new approaches for achieving SDGs in all 193/306 UN Member States that Work, Delivery on SDG Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States by end 2030 target date will be Mirage. Allowed to occur, the Ultimate Consequences for our Fragile Planet would be Disastrous for Citizens in all 193/306 UN Member States. It is sad that UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities and 193/306 UN Member States Entities: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Entities are still in MDG Mode as at 2nd Quarter 2018 Year of Implementation rather than SDG Mode.

One Worldwide Approach

We note that there are different approaches, visions, models and tools available to each country to achieve Right to Development Vision; Public Sector Reform/ Management Vision as well as 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 Visions, in accordance with its national circumstances and priorities as well as its own development context. However, if there is to be continuously improving collaboration, cooperation, cohesion and coordination in the design and delivery of Policy, Program, Project Interventions, 3PIs and 3PIs Training as One, a need arises for United Community to Global Visions whose implementation and evaluation is built upon One Worldwide Approach that is a Common and Systemic Approach for improving Ownership, Alignment, Harmony etc that has clear Principles, Instruments / Tools corresponding to each Principle, Practices and Database.

3PCM is an Advance One Worldwide Approach that is sufficiently all inclusive, all embracing and ambitious to meet the implementation as well as evaluation demands of an all inclusive, all embracing and ambitious SDGs, that is essentially the over-arching 2030 Global Agenda and which in reality includes NRMAP-Ag, NRMAP, AAAA, COP21 and Agenda 21.


Brexit and SDG in Ireland

Brexit is disaster waiting to happen, should Ireland, UK and EU Authorities keep looking on till March 2019 as Fantasy Meet Reality. The root cause or primary cause Brexit problems are best addressed within SDG in: Ireland, UK and each of 26 EU Countries and EU as Institution. The Big Question is How does WPSR 2018 help these North Countries grapple effectively with these complex problems? For Ireland, these are the pertinent issues:-
1.   If Ireland is to meaningfully collaborate and coordinate with remaining192/305 UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) and their National and International Partners in the Joint Delivery on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date (about 12 ¾ years to go), Ireland needs to better appreciate and recognize that achieving the SDGs is not an exercise in achieving a collection of individual targets, but rather an exercise in collaboration and joint efforts within government, to a level that has not been seen before and accept realization of the SDGs requires the coordination, cohesion, cooperation, collaboration and commitment of actions of different levels of government at levels unprecedented in World history and this DEMAND Paradigm Shifts in reality not rhetoric.
2.   If Ireland is to meaningfully collaborate and coordinate with remaining 192/305 UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) and their National and International Partners in the Joint Delivery on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date (about 12 ¾ years to go), Oreland need to genuinely omit towards supporting all relevant Stakeholder Groups Members at each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context to Implement and Evaluate Policy Coordination, Cohesion, Cooperation, Collaboration and Commitment DRIVEN Simultaneously by 3 Types of Integration:-
a)      Horizontal Integration: National – All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States. That is 2 – 4 levels depending on number of Tiers of Government in the specific UN Member State.
b)     Vertical Integration:
i)        National - All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States. That is 2 – 4 levels depending on number of Tiers of Government in the specific UN Member State.
ii)      International - All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States in each Sub-region, Region and Worldwide. That is 3 – 4 levels depending on number of International Political Groupings of Countries the specific UN Member State belong to.
iii)    Integration: National and International - All Arms in All Tiers of Government in each of 193/306 UN Member States, in each Sub-region, in each Region and Worldwide. That is 5 – 8 levels depending on number of Tiers of Government in the specific UN Member State and the number of International Political Groupings of Countries the specific UN Member State belong to.
c)      Engagement: Full Inclusion of All relevant Stakeholder Groups in Horizontal Integration and Vertical Integration (3bi) – (3biii). That is all relevant Stakeholder Blocks in each Horizontal Integration level and each Vertical Integration level, JOINTLY Driving Structures, Systems, Policies, Procedures, Communication, Cooperatives, Cultures and Rules Changes required to move each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional and Regional location context from where it is Now (2nd Quarter 2018) in each relevant SDGs Goals and Targets (A) to where it needs to be if SDG Pledge is to be delivered by end 2030 in the specific location context (B) as well as FIGURING out HOW to move from (A) to (B).
3.   SDG What Questions have been over answered over the years to date while SDG How Questions have been avoided or evaded. Yet without answering SDG How Questions seeking to Deliver on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date in all 193/306 UN Member States would be Mirage.
4.   We are not asking Ireland to go beyond Implementation and Evaluation of SDG in Ireland and Brexit in Ireland to be Directly involved in Implementation of answer to SDG How Questions in each Community, Sub-national and National level in each of 193/306 UN Member States as well as at Sub-regional, Regional and Global levels. We are asking Ireland to recognize urgent need to:-
a)      Find answer to SDG and SDG Pledge How Questions is MASTER KEY to ensuring that in the 12 ¾ years remaining all 193/306 UN Member States Deliver on SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date.
b)      Meaningfully Support Individuals and Institutions DEMONSTRATING genuine commitment to effectively Supporting 193/306 UN member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary at all levels; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Headquarters, Regional Offices and Country Offices Entities and their National and International Partners to find answer to SDG and SDG Pledge How Questions, Implement and Evaluate these answers in ways that ensure all 193/306 UN member States deliver on SDG Pledge by end 2030 target date.
c)      Appreciate that Time is of the Essence if the Much that Need to be Done, is to be Done in the 12 ¾ years remaining and DEMONSTRATE this through genuine commitment to start answering SDG and SDG Pledge How Questions Now that is as from April 2018.

While Brexit is the Overarching Sustainable Development Issues in Ireland and EU, Fulani Herdsmen Menace is the overarching Sustainable Development Issue in Nigeria. To meaningfully address real and complex SDGs problems on the ground in all North and South Countries, above points need to be addressed in each North or South Country specific and unique context.

Please find link to recent Papers on our Blog, urging all concerned Authorities to appreciate that Global PUSH to Deliver on SDG and SDG Pledge by end 2030 NEEDs to Start NOW and not wait till 2025 or 2027.



Reforming the UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF to be Fit for the 21st Century

The UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Entities have Central Role to Play if Right to Development Vision that is Integral Part of Public Sector Reform / Management Vision; AAAA Vision, SDG Vision, COP21 Vision and Agenda 21 Vision, is to be designed and delivered from Community to Global levels. Records show that several UN Declarations in 2015, 2016 and 2017 have underlined this fact. Some have specific provisions calling on UNDESA to Re-engineer itself so as to be better placed to support UN member States many of whom have requested UNDESA support to help them meet SDG targets inclusive of AAAA, COP21 targets by 2030 target date.

The reality is that without appropriate help from External and Internal Consultants with minimum certain levels of Hard Competencies: Learning and Skills and Soft Competences: Character, Courage, Discipline and Mindset, UNDESA cannot deliver on this responsibility and without UNDESA delivery on this responsibility Office of Special Rapporteur on Right to Development cannot achieve Right to Development Vision and UNDPAM cannot achieve Public Sector Reform / Management Vision. Also UNDESA Re-engineering that is not integral part of other UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Entities, including OS2RD and UNDPAM Re-engineering is not likely to achieve much in the work towards achieving the 2030 Global Agenda by target date.

We suggest Re-engineering 9 UNO Entities – OS2RD – Right to Development; UNDP – Poverty and Governance; UNICEF – Children and Family Welfare; WHO – Health, Lifestyle and Wellbeing; UNEP – Climate Change and Environmental Protection; FAO – Food, Agriculture and Nutrition; ILO – Entrepreneurship and Employment; WTO (ITO) – Commerce and Trade and UNODC – Crime and Corruption and 9 UNO New York Headquarters Entities – UNSC, OPGA, EOSG, UNCEB, ECOSOC, GA Committees, UNDESA, UNDPI, UNDPAM;  WBG Liaison Office; IMF Liaison Office, that is Integral Part of UN System Delivery as One, DaO Driving Transformation to make each UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Entity, an International Institution Fit for the 21st Century.

SDG that Work Partnership Strategy – Master Key for Delivery on SDG Pledge

The United Nations is working to make itself fit-for-purpose for the 2030 Agenda. However, given the magnitude of what remains to be done in 12 ¾ Years remaining; there is urgent need for all UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities Authorities as well as UN Member States Governments: Executive, Legislature, Judiciary Authorities and their National and International Partners to face New Direction and Adopt New Priorities.

Achieving the SDGs in each of 193/306 UN Member States is not an exercise in achieving a collection of individual targets, but rather an exercise in collaboration and joint efforts within government, to a level that has not been seen before. 

Achieving the SDGs in each of 193/306 UN Member States underlines need for all concerned National  and International Stakeholder Blocks to genuinely appreciate that Monitoring and Evaluation should be seen not as an exercise in reporting, but as an active management tool that helps adjust the strategy along the way. A challenge that must be overcome and speedily too, is that Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks tend to target specific policy interventions (e.g., a single policy or the program in a particular sector), whereas it is important to assess overall progress towards interrelated, interconnected, interlinked and interdependent goals and targets in each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional or Global , CSnNSrRG, location context.  
To achieve the SDGs, Member States need not only increased financing, but also fit-for-purpose national and international institutions that facilitate economic stability and sustainable development.

Ultimately, to fully mainstream SDG investing, new products – finance, non finance, evaluation, non evaluation need to be developed. The private sector and financial sector excels at innovation when demand is there. If Government creates Demand, the Private Sector including the Financial Sector will create supply. This will ultimately rub off on the public sector and international institutions.

Overall, the realization of the SDGs with Delivery on SDGs Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States be end 2030 target date (12 ¾ Years to go) requires the coordination, cooperation, cohesion, collaboration and commitment of actions of different levels of government. This demands the establishment of New Partnerships and New Multi Stakeholder Partnerships / Platforms that Work.

SDG that Work Partnership Strategy – Kick Start Mutual Collaboration Events and Activities

The SDG that Work Partnership Agreement is expected to be a Legal Agreement that would take some time to negotiate and agree. However, this Partnership Agreement needs to start immediately with Institutions that demonstrate required levels of Hard and Soft Competencies and kick started by Mutual Collaboration Events and Activities within:-
  1. Involving Actors – Stakeholder Blocks from North and South Countries and UN Systems: UNO, WBG, IMF through Design and Delivery of Multi Stakeholder Platforms / Partnerships, MSP for Social Justice and Economic Growth; MSP for Sustainable Development Solutions etc
  2. Reinvigorating Right to Development, Right to Participation and related UNGA and HRC Declarations in each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States through Design and Delivery of appropriate Implementation and Evaluation Frameworks.
  3. Improving National Development Cooperation and International Development Cooperation in each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States through Design and Delivery of appropriate Implementation and Evaluation Frameworks.
  4. Firmly putting Right to Development, Right to Participation and related UNGA and HRC Declarations in the Front Burner in both National Public Arena and International Public Arena within Inclusive Citizens Engagement and Inclusive Institutions in all 193/306 UN Member States through Design and Delivery of appropriate Implementation and Evaluation Frameworks.
  5. Design and Delivery of Right to Development, Right to Participation and related UNGA and HRC Declarations Community of Practise Implementation and Evaluation Frameworks.
  6. Design and Delivery of Mechanisms for Securing the Full Cooperation of UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary at all tiers – both North and South Countries; UN System: UNO WBG IMF Entities at Headquarters Regional Offices, Country Offices and Sub-national Offices; SOs/NGOs; Academics and Researchers; Business: Micro, Small, Medium, Large, Multinational Enterprises; Consultants, Media – National and International.
The above and other Mutual Collaboration Activities and Events would be Designed and Delivered in such a way as to ensure that all obstacles and barriers to improving systems, structures, policies, procedures, solidarity, cooperatives, communication, rules and cultures changes required to achieve increasing convergence between Right to Development Vision and 2030 Agenda Vision Intention and Reality at each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States are effectively removed.

Conclusion

If the work towards delivery on SDG Pledge in all 193/306 UN Member States by end 2030 target date is not FLUKE, NOW is Time for Global PUSH effectively strengthening High Flier North and South Countries to achieve SDG by 2025 and Lagging North and South Countries to achieve SDG from 2026 to end 2nd Quarter 2030. This is the only way to ensure that in the 12 ¾ Years remaining All Peoples in all North and South Countries achieve all 17 Goals of the SDGs by end 2030 target date.


Should National Leaders and World Leaders in 193/306 UN Member States wait till 2025 or 2028 to start Global Push to achieved SDG by end 2030 and in ways that deliver on SDG Pledge, it would be too late. This fact is known now, unaddressed, the reality is delivery on SDG Pledge is dead at birth. Should this be the case by end 2030, the ultimate consequences would be catastrophic for citizens in both North and South Countries.

It is our hope that made in this Paper resonate positively with UNDPAM, other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, WTO (ITO) Entities and UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary Entities.

There are Bright Prospects of Success, should Office of Special Rapporteur on Right to Development, UNDPAM, FAO, UNDP UNDESA, EOSG, OPGA, UNEB, UNSC, UNGA Committees, ECOSOC, UNGA as well as UN Member States – especially Powerful North and South Countries be Individually and Collectively genuinely committed to contributing its quota towards achieving Right to Development Vision and 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 Agenda 21 Vision Intention and Reality across our World.

Annex : Submission for Publiation in WPSR 2018 (2017)

Public Sector Management, PSM Dimension of 2030 Transformation Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 - Tacking Community to Global Implementation and Evaluation Challenge?

Introduction

The WPSR 20151 was on Responsive and Accountable Public Governance and coincided with UN Member States endorsement of the SDG in September 2015 with firm commitment to “Leave No One Behind”. WPSR 2015 like earlier WPSRs’ presented good analysis and good lessons learned but did not go further to present good recommendations and conclusions setting out Actionable Agenda Items that each UN Member State: Governments, Parliaments, Judiciary could adopt or adapt to help them grapple effectively with real and complex challenges of Public Sector Management, PSM Dimension of 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 on the ground in their respective Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional or Global CSnNSrRG location Context.

WPSR 2015 and earlier WPSRs’, like other existing similar UNO Reports, including UNDP Human Development Report, HDR; FAO State of Food and Agriculture Report, SFAR; and WBG World Development Report, WDB etc as well as UN Secretary General’s Reports including UNSG SDG Progress Reports, are Vision and Words without Action, as each Report answer only What questions while avoiding or evading answer to How questions.

National and Global Leaders on UN Member States: Governments, Parliaments, Judiciary and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF sides need to individually and jointly recognize that without converting these Reports into Vision and Words with Action wherein each Reworked Report and each New Report correctly answer How questions, it will be uphill task achieving 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Vision Ambitions, in each of UN Member State by target date.

This Paper is our Organization’s contribution towards ways and means of effectively tackling this challenge.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.      UNDESA – DPADM 2015




Answering HOW questions is a DOING Matter

To achieve increasing convergence between SDG Vision Intention and Reality by 2030 target date, each UN Member State: Governments, Parliaments and Judiciary, as well as UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF and Partners at each specific CSbNSrRG level need to overcome many challenges. These include:-
1.      Removing disconnect between UNO Headquarters New York; WBG and IMF Headquarters Washington and Communities in each UN Member State.
2.      Converting the 2030 Transformation Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 and its “Leave No One Behind” Concept into Single Policy, Program, Project Intervention “3PI and 3PI Training as One” Initiative such as Governance, Corruption and Accountability; Food Agriculture and Nutrition; Land, Water and Cooperatives; GCrA-FAN-LWCp Dimension of 2030 Transformation Agenda with Capacity Building; Knowledge and Research; Networking and Partnerships, CbKrNp and Citizens Engagement; Public Sector Management; Learning, Evaluation and Results CePmLr as Denominators in each specific CSnNSrRG location context. This “Single Agenda” Intervention will be Designed and Delivered within Migration; Conflict Resolution; Security; Health; Welfare – Individual, Family, Society; Economy – Individual, Institution, Country (North or South); Education;  Entrepreneurship; Empowerment; Employment and Engagement to be effectively addressed in each UN Member State and in ways that deliver Pro Poor: Economic Growth, Wealth Creation and Institutional Reforms: Systems, Structures, Processes, Policies, Rules and Cultures Changes at each specific CSbNSrRG level.
3.      Capacity Building: Individual: Hard Competences – Learning and Skills and Soft Competences: Character, Courage and Mindset; Institution: Systems – Operations, Administration, Governance, Marketing, Funding, Technology, Evaluation, Accountability, Regulation, Standards, Accounting, Service Delivery, Legal and Reform and Society: Spaces – Political, Cultural, Economic, Financial, Peace, Security, Religious, Moral, Cooperatives, Communication, Social, Environmental, Legal and Technical
4.      Developing competent, diverse and ethical public servants and civil servants  not just in the core civil service on government side, but also in the civil service on parliaments and judiciary sides as well as the public service, military service – army, navy, air force, military intelligence and para military service - police, foreign intelligence, domestic intelligence, customs, immigration, prisons, fire, highway patrol, narcotics etc)  and inclusive, participatory and accountable institutions.
5.      Addressing all fundamental issues of Correct Diagnosis, Correct Prescription, Correct Surgery and Correct Recovery Management within appropriately designed and delivered Pilot Programs and Scale Up Programs in each specific CSnNSrRG location context.

6.      Addressing acts of omission or commission responsible for 2030 Transformation Agenda What questions being answered and How questions being avoided or evaded. It is pertinent to note that the National and International Development Community had in the Pre MDG era, MDG era and up to 3rd quarter 2017 Year 2 of Implementation of SDG, focused a great deal of attention on learning2 what policies and interventions are needed to generate better outcomes, it has paid much less attention to learning why those approaches succeed so well in some contexts but fail to generate positive results in others and has paid even less attention to learning HOW New Approaches that could succeed well in each specific CSnNSrRG location context could be Designed and Delivered. Also all UN System Entities are still in MDG Mode.
7.      Addressing PSM 7 Pillars (Page 6) dimension of (1) – (6) on both North and South countries sides.
8.      Addressing Building levels of Political Will and Public Will required to tackle issues in (1) – (7) effectively and efficiently, in each specific CSnNSrRG location context.
9.      Recognizing that Correct answers to issues in (1) – (8) is A DOING/Know How Matter not A Talking/Rhetoric Matter.

Rethinking WPSR Series and other UN System Reports

WPSR 2017 was titled “Migration, Health and Countries in Post Conflict Situations”. It will be recalled that WPSR 2010 was titled “Reconstructing Public Administration After Conflict: Challenges, Practices and Lessons Learned”. WPSR 2017 title suggests an Evaluation of WPSR 2010. WPSR 2017 is coming 2 years after WPSR 2015 (title Page 1) and 7 years after WPSR 2010, yet PSM issues WPSR 2010 and WPSR 2015 sought to address are still outstanding in 2017. Records show that modalities for tackling PSM Challenges in the SDG era that ought to have been agreed by UN Member States by end 1st quarter 2015 Year of Decision (if WPSRs’ Lessons Learnt were actually Learnt) are still outstanding by 3rd quarter 2017 Year 2 of Implementation and all UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities are still in MDG Mode in 3rd quarter 2017 Year 2 of Implementation. This once more underlines urgent need for Rethinking WSPRs and other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Reports to meaningfully address above points (1) – (9).

UNSG Report on Repositioning the UN Development System to deliver on the 2030 Agenda – Ensuring Better Future for All3

In compliance with Paragraph 19 of QCPR 2016, the UN Secretary General on 30 June 2017 released the above Report.

This UNSG Report essentially calls for above Rethinkings 4 and provide stronger evidence supporting validity of many of our Organization’s Study Findings including: the disconnect between Communities in North and South Countries and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities Headquarters; many UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities –Policy, Program, Project Interventions are discussed and implemented at Headquarters and Regional Offices, discussed without implementation at Country Offices and not discussed and not implemented at Sub-national Offices and Beneficiary Community levels and UN System Entities themselves need help before they can help UN Member States etc.

The Report identifies Accountability 5 as a Major Issue. However, as long as concerned National Leaders and Global Leaders on UN Member States: Governments, Parliaments, Judiciary; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF; CSOs/NGOs;  Academic Institutions/ Traditional Institutions/ Religious Organizations; Private Sector: Micro, Small, Medium, Large, Multinational Enterprises; Media: Radio, TV, Print, Online sides supported by Internal Consultants and External Consultants with minimum certain levels of Hard Competences: Learning and Skills and Soft Competencies: Character, Courage and Mindset do not know why Paris Declaration, PD (2005) and Bussan Declaration (2011) had flaws and failures; they will not know how to design and deliver 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 Accountability Framework that will succeed on sustainable basis in all 306/193 UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities and Partners sides.

This UNSG Report, like all other existing UNSG Reports and other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Reports, including UN Development System, UNDS Conferences and Meetings Outcome Documents, has Big Information, Research and Knowledge Gaps that need to be correctly identified and correctly filled in each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional Location context to produce revised Report that is Vision and Words with Action through clear and correct answers to How questions as well as ways of implementing through Pilot Programs with effective monitoring and evaluation of this implementation and the Scale Up of Successful Pilot Programs in each specific CSnNSrRG location context.

The relevant processes for design and delivery of required Systems, Structures, Processes, Policies, Rules and Cultures Changes within UNDS Internal and External Publics are described in greater details in ISPE/EAG Policy Briefs on Rethinkings and Food Brexit (links provided) and other ISPE/EAG Policy Briefs/Papers (copies on ISPE/EAG Blog).

Facing New Direction and Adopting New Priorities

It is clear that SDG / 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 need to be converted into a Single Set of Cohesive Strategies, Policies, Programs and Projects and Food, Agriculture and Nutrition Dimension of SDG / 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 offers the most practical alternative for achieving such conversion. This underlines need for National and Global Stakeholders in each specific CSnNSrRG location context to face New Direction and Adopt New Priorities underlined by New PSM Strategies that Work.

Brexit6 and Climate Change7 will make already bad World Hunger, Malnutrition, Poverty, Migration, Security etc problems worse, if Brexit is Force for Evil and Climate Change Challenges remain un-tackled.  Brexit as Force for Evil that is: Hard Brexit, Soft Brexit or No Deal portend chaos and disaster not only for UK and EU but also for remaining European countries and countries in all other Regions / continents in our World today. This underlines urgent need for Alternative Brexit proposed in Food Brexit Paper driven by New PSM to be embraced by relevant CSnNSrRG Stakeholders on both North and South Countries sides.

Post Conflict and Peace PSM8 7 Pillars for Both North and South Countries

1.      Rebuilding Trust in Government Institutions: A Key Challenge in Post Conflict and Peace Reconstruction. Note that all Countries have been in Conflict at one time or the other and so Post Conflict is used in a broader sense and affect all North and South Countries.
2.      Post Conflict and Peace Reconstruction: A Complex Task requiring Effective Leadership.
3.      Effective Leadership: A Key Challenge in Building Institutions.
4.      Building Institutions: A Complex Task requiring Good Governance, Value Reorientation, Changing Attitude and Behavior at Scale and Effective Civil Service and Public Service.
5.      Effective Civil Service and Public Service: A Key Challenge Integral to the Political, Cultural, Economic, Financial, Social, Environmental, Peace, Security, Religious, Moral, Cooperatives, Communication, Governance, Accountability and Judicial life of every Country – North or South in our World today.
6.      Citizens Engagement in Post Conflict and Peace Reconstruction: An Essential Ingredient in Sustainable National and International Cooperation.
7.      Citizens Centric Service Delivery in Post Conflict and Peace Situations. The reason d’ĂȘtre of Public Administration in every Country – North or South in our World today.

Conclusion

Good Governance requires clear Goals and robust performance measures which are transparent and more importantly outcome based. For points made in this Paper to be operationalized in practice in each North and South Country, clear answers must be found to How questions and NOW.
