Comment on UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development Report September 2017

Introduction

The UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development (Special Rapporteur) Report was released September 2017, the first in a series of Reports during his 3 year tenure that started May 2017. This is a very Bold and Commendable Report that deserve full support of all UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary Entities at all levels in each North or South Country; all UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities at New York, Washington, Geneva, Rome Headquarters, Regional Headquarters, Country Offices and Sub-national Offices Worldwide. The Special Rapporteur has invited Feedback. This is our Institution’s response to the Invitation.

UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development Report Series

The UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development  September 2017 Report is the first in a Series Reports the Special Rapporteur look forward to releasing throughout his 3 year tenure aimed at helping North and South Countries – All UN Member States; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF and Partners at specific Community, Sub-national National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global, CSnNSrRG levels to jointly tackle UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council, UNGA and HRC, Right to Development Declaration and related Declarations, Implementation and Evaluation  Challenges at each specific CSnNSrRG level.

The Special Rapporteur’s September 2017 Report was essentially outcome of baseline consultative research and diagnostic study, on the past 30 years of Right to Development. The Report analysed real problems on the ground at CSnNSrRG levels to diagnose 3 problems:-
  1. Politicization
  2. Lack of Engagement
  3. Adverse Global Trends

And Prescribes 4 Solutions:-
  1. Participation, Dialogue, Consultation and Transparency
  2. Inclusiveness
  3. Interdependence and Indivisibility of Human Rights
  4. International Cooperation

It goes further to set out 8 Point Agenda Methods / Scope of Work.

Building Bridge Between Lessons Learning and Lessons Forgetting

This Important Report has identified many Lessons Learnt. As the Special Rapporteur moves forward in delivery on his ToR, there is a need for him to ensure that Effective Bridge is built between Lessons Learning and Lessons Forgetting.

The Report demonstrates fresh evidence that in the past 30 years of Right to Development Lessons Learning has been progressing at the same pace as Lessons Forgetting. The fact that relevant UNO Agencies have avoided or evaded making the Report accessible to the Public should make it clear to the Special Rapporteur that coming up with Good Reports is one thing; fully implementing its Recommendations with effective monitoring and evaluation of this implementation at specific CSnNSrRG levels is another very different thing. This underlines the urgent need for the Special Rapporteur to ensure that his Report is converted from Vision and Words to Vision and Words with Action and on time.

Right to Participation, Right to Development etc

The lack of full implementation of WCED Report 1986 with effective monitoring and evaluation is direct outcome of lack of full implementation of Right to Development 1986 with effective monitoring and evaluation. This point was noted in the Special Rapporteur’s September 2017 Report. It is clear that the greater majority of World Political, Cultural, Economic, Financial, Social, Environment / Climate Change, Peace, Security / Terrorism, Cooperatives, Communication etc problems on the ground today at specific CSnNSrRG levels in all 193/306 UN Member States is direct result of these identified lacks.

The Special Rapporteur’s September 2017 Report is not and should not be seen as threat to UN Member States Authorities and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Authorities. It should be seen in its proper context, as wake up all to these Authorities so that they can Reason and Get Real to redouble effort at getting all UN member States on Track to achieve increasing convergence between 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Visions Intention and Realty by target date.  These Authorities need to recognize that:-
  1. Without respecting Right to Development, Right to Participation, other UNGA and HRC Declarations and without fully implementing and evaluating WCED Report Conclusions and Recommendations, it will be uphill task achieving 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Visions in each of 193/306 UN Member States.
  2. Without addressing all Public Sector Management, PSM issues, including Leadership, there cannot be Correct Diagnosis,  Correct Prescription, Correct Surgery and Correct Recovery Management to all 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Visions root cause or primary cause problems on the ground at each specific  CSnNSrRG level, it will be uphill task achieving 2030 Agenda Vision in all 193/306 UN Member States.
  3. Without addressing all implementation and evaluation challenges in (1) and (2) at each specific CSnNSrRG level, the probability of putting our Fragile Planet in Peril with ultimate catastrophe consequences for citizens in all North and South Countries – all 193/306 UN Member States, is very high. This is because what happens in Rich Countries affect what happens in Poor Countries and Vice Versa.
  4. Without quickly converting the September 2017 Report from Vision and Words to Vision and Words with Action, it will be uphill task finding sustainable solutions to real and complex problems on the ground within (1) – (3) at each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.

Rethinkings

As No Capitalist Country can be stable without a level of Socialism and No Socialist Country can be stable without a level of Capitalism (Communism is the Highest form of Socialism) there is urgent need for UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary Authorities; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Authorities to Rethink Diplomacy, Development, Defence, Democracy, Data, Digitization, Accountability, Transparency, Participation, Governance, Leadership, Communication, Cooperatives, Solidarity, Trust, Elections and Evaluation within Right to Development and other UNGA and HRC Rights Declarations and in ways that meaningfully Organize, Orientate and Discipline Citizens in each of 193/306 UN Member States to be the MOVING FORCE Driving Transformation of Society as well as evolution of New National and International Development Systems fit for the 21st Century at each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.

To effectively address these Rethinkings Needs, there must be multiple Paradigm Shifts, including shift away from Brexit and Globalization as Force for Evil to shift toward Brexit and Globalization as Force for Good and in ways that effectively demonstrate Thinking Global and Acting Local – where the smallest Unit of Local is the Community in each of 193/306 UN Member States and the largest Unit is each of the 5 Continents in our World today.

2030 Agenda: Tackling Implementation and Evaluation Challenges

There is No North or South Country in our World today that is not facing challenges in the full implementation and effective evaluation of Sustainable Solutions to National and International Dimensions of 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Visions root cause or primary cause problems on the ground at each specific CSnNSrRG level.

The earlier these challenges are Professionally tackled, the faster UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities will shift from MDG Mode to SDG Mode (UN System: UNO,WBG,IMF Entities are still in MDG Mode in 4th Quarter 2017 Year 2 of Implementation) and our World will be on track achieving 2030 Agenda Vision by target date. Many Countries – North and South are off target in 4th quarter Year 2 of Implementation and much needs to be done and on time, if all 193/306 UN Member States are to be on track meeting 2030 Agenda Goals by target date.

If all 193/306 UN Member States in our World today are to be on track meeting 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Goals by target date, the 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans need to be converted into Single Food, Agriculture and Nutrition, FAN Agenda for Ending Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty Worldwide.

All the Single FAN Agenda Design and Delivery that is Integral Part of all Political, Cultural Economic, Financial, Social, Environment / Climate Change, Peace, Security / Terrorism, Religious, Moral, Cooperatives, Communication, Legal, Technical Dimensions of 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans at each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States - How questions need to be effectively answered and jointly by UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF and other relevant Stakeholders.

This finding of Correct answers to 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans - How questions demand converting the Single Food, Agriculture and Nutrition Agenda for Ending Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty Worldwide into 2 Visions – Political Vision and Economic Vision, each with Integrated Political, Cultural Economic, Financial, Social, Environment/Climate Change, Peace, Security/Terrorism, Religious, Moral, Cooperatives, Communication, Corruption, Leadership, Service Delivery, Governance, Accountability, Participation, Transparency, Spiritual, Cooperation, Change, Attitude, Behaviour, Legal and Technical Sustainable Solutions specific for each CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.

There is huge information, research and knowledge gap that need to be urgently filled, if all fundamental issues identified in this Paper are to be meaningfully addressed by all UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary at all tiers; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities at Headquarters, Regional Offices, Country Offices and Sub-national Offices and Partners Worldwide. As long as these Gaps remain unfilled, it will be uphill task achieving increasing convergence between 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Intention and Realty by target date in each CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.




Points made in the Special Rapporteur’s September 2017 Report against background of Points made in the LAC Report, UNU Paper, other Documents and Submissions in this Paper underline need for clear and correct answers to 4 Specific Questions set out below.

We seek to draw attention of relevant authorities to the need for paradigm shifts: from focus on problems and blame to focus on solutions and opportunities; focus on academic research aimed at advancing frontiers of academic knowledge to focus on development research aimed at significant improvements in contemporary measures of service, speed, quality, costs and where necessary revenue; from working in silos to working in synergy; from business as usual to business unusual; from focus on talking and thinking to focus on action and accomplishment.

Right to Development, Right to Participation etc – Tackling Challenge Worldwide?

The Special Rapporteur on Right to Development Report September 2017 underlines urgent need for UN Member States genuinely interested in achieving increasing convergence between 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Intention and Realty by target date in each CSnNSrRG level; to collectively DEMAND relevant UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities meaningfully support their joint effort through joint UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary at all tiers; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities at Headquarters, Regional Offices, Country Offices and Sub-national Offices and Partners Implementation and Evaluation of Right to Development, Right to Participation, other relevant UNGA and HR Declarations.

These UN Member States Entities and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities need to demonstrate and be seen to demonstrate genuine commitment towards Design and Delivery of Right to Development Vision and 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans Vision: Policies, Programs, Projects Interventions, 3PIs and 3PIs Training as One in ways that operationalize in practice Right to Development, Right to Participation, other relevant UNGA and HRC Declarations in each specific CSnNSrRG level in their respective Countries. As there is a lot of Band Wagon Effect among Nations, the Successes achieved would be Benchmarked and replicated in other Nations. UN Member States, UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF, Office of Special Rapporteur on Right to Development cannot do this huge work alone, but need Policy Reform Advice and Technical Support at all CSnNSrRG level by a Global Coordinating External Consultant with demonstrated Hard Competencies: Learning and Skills and Soft Competencies: Character Courage and Mindset.

All fundamental issues highlighted in the Report Conclusions and Recommendations and this Commentary on the Report cannot be wished away, denied or rejected by UN Member States and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF but need to be discussed at all relevant UN System Events, Conferences and Intergovernmental Meetings, negotiated and established within Sound Implementation and Evaluation Frameworks, as well as operationalized in practice within Systems, Structures,, Policies, Procedures, Cooperatives, Communication, Rules and Cultures Changes relevant to each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States and on time, if sustainable solutions are to be found to real and complex World Political, Economic, Financial Security, Social, Climate Change, Environment et problems on the ground today in each of 193/306 UN Member State.

The UK Parliament Environmental Audit Committee Report on SDG in the UK  underline the fact that all North and South Countries need to implement and evaluate SDG and remaining 2030 Agenda including Right to Development, in their respective Nations.

New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP Multidisciplinary Professionals Community of Practice

The current National Adaptation Plan (Agriculture) NAP-Ag and NAP relies heavily, sometimes exclusively and sometimes disproportionately on Trained Economists. The fundamental issues underlying root problems in each of the 9 New National Resilience, Mitigation and Adaptation Plan, NRMAP Components – Agriculture; Ecosystem and Biodiversity; Water; Health – Plant, Animal, Human; Tourism; Infrastructure; Energy; Humanitarian; Institutional and Systems Reform are well beyond what only Trained Economists can handle and that explains why working HARDer is not delivering Better Performance and Results.

To achieve continuously improving Performance and Results in design and delivery of new NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP that is integral part of reinforced Global and National Collective Action for achieving Right to Development Vision and 2030 Agenda – AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 Vision, there is a need to meaningfully involve balanced mix of Multidisciplinary Professionals from Arts, Humanities, Sciences, Engineering, Medicine; that is Academics, Professionals and Practitioners whose collective expertise, perspectives and diversity are adequate to help Stakeholders in specific Community to Global Location Context grapple effectively with their unique New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP Policy, Program, Project Intervention, 3PI and 3PI Training as One Challenges.

World Leaders and National Leaders in each of the 6 Major Blocks – Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary at all levels; UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; CSOs/NGOs; Academics and Researchers; Businesses: Micro, Small, Medium, Large, Multinational Enterprises; Consultants need to recognize that there is no way Trained Economists alone can provide all of the answers to all of the New National Resilience, Mitigation and Adaptation Plan, NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP real and complex problems on the ground from Community to Global levels and that for Best Results, there is a need to include all relevant Multidisciplinary Academics, Scientists, Arts, Engineering, Humanities, Medicine: Professionals and Practitioners.

New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP Capacity Building

In the New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP, Policy Makers and Decision Makers need to recognize that Effective and Efficient Capacity Building needs to be on 3 Levels:-
  1. Individual: Hard Competences – Learning and Skills and Soft Competences – Character, Courage, Discipline and Mindset.
  2. Institution: Systems and Processes operating at minimum certain levels of performance and productivity to support Individuals to deploy Hard and Soft Competences acquired in their day to day work.
  3. Society: Political, Cultural, Economic, Financial, Social, Environment, Peace, Security, Religious, Moral, Technical and Legal Space for Institutions to Thrive on Chaos.

6 Major Blocks of Stakeholders in the New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP Processes that is Integral Part of the AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each of 193/306 Member States are: Member States; UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF and CSOs/NGOs.

Our Study Finding is that there are Research and Knowledge Gaps in each of the 6 Major Blocks that need to be filled. To achieve this, there are Capacity Building Gaps in each of the 6 Major Blocks that also needs to be filled and without delay, if there is to be increasing convergence between New NRMAP-Ag Vision and New NRMAP Vision Intention and Reality that is integral part of work towards achieving increasing convergence between AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 Visions Intention and Reality in each Community in each of the 193/306 Member States. Also, Capacity Building Challenge is not only on Developing Countries side.

These Capacity Building realities on the ground challenges World Leaders and National Leaders in each of the 6 Blocks to Individually and Jointly find ways and means of continuously improving Commitment, Collaboration, Cooperation, Cohesion and Coordination from Community to Global levels, because the threat of Climate Change in Agriculture and remaining identified New NRMAP 8 Components are real and failure to come up with credible Community to Global Climate Change Mitigation, Resilience and Adaptation Sustainable Solutions Framework could have ultimate catastrophic consequences for our fragile Planet.

New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP Reform Interventions – Selecting Preferred Consultants

The UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF Entities have standard guidelines for selection of Consultants. However, the UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Procurement Process needs to appreciate the difference in regular Consulting Services Procurement such as Financial Audit where standards exist and qualified Service Providers deliver to these standards and so any Pre Qualified Consultant can deliver equally on the Assignment, therefore NO HARM is done in selecting the Lowest Financial Proposal to Definite Quantity Contract and Reform Consulting Services Procurement.

In Reform Consulting Services Procurement, such as Policy Reform where no standards exist and Innovation and Creativity are Keys and so all Pre Qualified Consultants cannot deliver equally on the Assignment, therefore MUCH HARM is usually done in selecting the Lowest Financial Proposal, if this does not coincide with the Highest Technical Proposal. Thus, the selection of Preferred Consultant that consistently Deliver Good Reform Policies, Programs, Projects, continues to pose major Challenge for UN System Entities and Member States.

The New NRMAP-Ag needs to have New Procurement Processes, with New Rules that effectively respond to this difference and in ways that ensure Accountability is effectively promoted and protected through ensuring that each Preferred Consultant deliver on promise made in their Technical Proposal. This way Preferred Consultants who consistently deliver flawed or failed Technical Proposals are no longer rewarded with renewed Patronage and Procurement Commissioners and Managers who consistently select Preferred Consultants who consistently deliver flawed or failed Technical Proposals are sanctioned.

New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP: Moving from Vision and Words without Action to Vision and Words with Action

The current NAP-Ag and NAP, without prejudice to Giant Strides already made, is essentially Vision and Words without Action and this explains why the much more that remains to be done appears to be uphill task. This is so because the current NAP-Ag and NAP provide answer to What and Why questions while avoiding or evading answer to How questions.

The New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP needs to be Vision and Words with Action that provide clear and correct answer to What, Why, When, Where, Who and How questions, if there is to be increasing convergence between Right to Development Vision, New NRMAP-Ag Vision, NRMAP Vision, AAAA Vision, SDG Vision, COP21 Vision and Agenda 21 Vision in each Community in each of 193/306 Member States Intention and Reality by 2030 Target date. A New NRMAP is one of the Master Keys to Right to Development that Work.

To achieve this, the Design and Delivery of New NRMAP-Ag and New NRMAP that are Integral Parts of Right to Development Vision, 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 that is Vision and Words with Action, needs to be built upon correct Diagnosis of root problems on the ground in each specific Community to Global location; correct Prescription to diagnosed Diseases; correct Surgery to apply the Prescription and correct Recovery Management after the Surgery. World Leaders and National Leaders in the 6 Major Blocks need to recognize and appreciate that it is fail is any one of these stages, fail in all the stages.

Right to Development, Right to Participation etc Acid Test of Credibility

The Acid Test of Credibility of the Right to Development, Right to Participation and related UNGA and HRC Declarations is How it Delivers from Community to Global levels:-
  1. Better Agriculture Crops, Livestock, Forestry, Fisheries and Aquaculture Information Services
  2. Better Agriculture Crops, Livestock, Forestry, Fisheries and Aquaculture Commodity Markets
  3. Better Innovation and Creativity in Climate Change Resilience, Mitigation and Adaptation Solutions Management
  4. Better Optimization of Climate Change Gains and Minimization of Climate Change Losses
  5. Better Trade, Aid, Debts, Anti Corruption, Peace and Security

Big Issues – Four Specific Questions

There is a need for the Special Rapporteur on Right to Development; FAO, UNDP other UN System: UNO WBG IMGF Entities; US, UK, Germany, France, other North Countries; Egypt, Nigeria Brazil, China and other South Countries;  CSOs/NGOs; Academics and Researchers; Businesses: Micro Small, Medium, Large and Multinational Enterprises Citizens and Consultants to jointly provide clear answers to the following questions:-
1.      How to remove disconnect between each Community in each of 193/306 UN Member States and FAO and IFAD Rome Headquarters, WBG and IMF Washington Headquarters and UNO New York Headquarters?
2.      How to domesticate Linked Food, Agriculture, Nutrition, Health, Lifestyle and Wellbeing Dimensions of all 17 Goals of the SDGs as appropriate to specific context of each Community in each of 193/306 UN Member States?
3.      How to answer NRMAP-Ag and NRMAP How questions, especially DOING of How in each Community in each of 193/306 UN Member States and in ways that help achieve increasing convergence between 2030 Agenda – AAAA, SDG, COP21 Vision Intention and Reality by 2030 target date?
4.      How the NRMAP-Ag and remaining identified Eight NRMAP Components could be funded and in ways that help achieve all 17 Goals of the SDGs by 2030 Target Date?
5.      How the Right to Development, Right to Participation and related UNGA and HRC Declarations could be funded and in ways that help achieve all 17 Goals of the SDGs by 2030 Target Date?

Inclusion

In the work towards achieving Right to Development Vision, New NRMAP-Ag, New NRMAP Vision Ambitions and 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 Vision in all 193/306 UN Member States, it is not just Multidisciplinary Professionals at all levels in each of the 6 Major Blocks that should be meaningfully involved through Multi Stakeholder Platforms in Design and Delivery of Policy, Program, Project Interventions, 3PIs and 3PIs Training as One, but All Stakeholders from Community to Global levels in each of the 193/306 Member States, irrespective of Age, Class Education, Gender, Race, Tribe, Religion, Political or any other Interest needs to be included.

Disconnect

Records show that SDG needs to be implemented by all 193/306 UN Member States; that Malnutrition is a problem affecting virtually all 193/306 UN Member States; that over 2/3 of the World Poor have their livelihood in Agriculture; that many UNO Interventions to support smallholder farmers are actively discussed at UNO Headquarters New York and FAO/IFAD Headquarters Rome; mildly discussed at UNO Entities including FAO and IFAD Country Offices. However, the greater majority of Target Beneficiaries and Duty Bearers at Sub-national and Community levels are not aware of these UNO Interventions. This Disconnect between Communities in 193/306 Member States and UNO Headquarters New York and FAO/IFAD Headquarters Rome needs to be speedily removed, if there is to be increasing convergence between New NRMAP-Ag Vision and New NRMAP Vision Intention and Reality.

One Worldwide Approach



We note that there are different approaches, visions, models and tools available to each country to achieve Right to Development Vision as well as 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 Vision, 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.


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 NRMAP-Ag Vision, NRMAP 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 and Soft Competences, UNDESA cannot deliver on this responsibility and without UNDESA delivery on this responsibility OS2RD cannot achieve Right to Development Vision. Also UNDESA Re-engineering that is not integral part of other UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Entities, including OS2RD 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 – Commerce and Trade and UNODC – Crime and Corruption and 8 UNO New York Headquarters Entities – UNSC, OPGA, EOSG, UNCEB, ECOSOC, GA Committees, UNDESA, UNDPI, 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.

How Member States and UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF and Partners Learns

FAO and remaining UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities, including OS2RD consistently generates huge research and knowledge information each year. The Big question is How does OS2RD, FAO and the remaining UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities, disseminate and utilize, these huge research and knowledge information?

The UK ICAI released a 2014 Report on How UK DFID Learns that gave UK DFID Poor Rating of 3 out of 4. Yet the Report found that UK DFID leads in Learning among UK Government Agencies/ Entities. The probability is high that should the same assessment be carried out in UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Entities, including OS2RD or other UN Member State Entities, each would Score the same Poor Rating of 3 out of 4 or less.

If NRMAP-Ag, NRMAP, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 Vision and Right to Development, Right to Participation, other related UNGA and HRC Declarations Visions ambitions are to be achieved by 2030 Target date in each of 193/306 Member States, there is a need to ensure that each of 193/306 Member States Agencies / Entities as well as each of the UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Agencies / Entities Score Rating of 2 out of 4 or higher. This way, each of these Agencies / Entities will have installed Processes and Systems that ensure that effective bridge is built between Lessons Learning and Lessons Forgetting.

Revising Major Group Concept in 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 Agenda 21

The SDG Major Group Concept is not working to achieve 2030 Agenda. This is essentially due to failure to actually Learn Lessons from Major Group Concept failure in MDG and UNEP.

It is wrong to classify Local Government – a Tier of Government with 3 Arms, as a Non Governmental Major Group; to fail to recognize State Governments as a Tier of Government (where it exist) with 3 Arms; to recognize more than 4 NGO Major Groups all of which are working in Silos rather than Synergy and to tolerate or rationalize corruption in the awarding of EOSO Status to NGOs and other SDG Systems, Structures, Procedures, Policies, Rules and Cultures Corrupt practices on Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary, UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF and Partners sides as is the reality in existing Major Group Concept.

There is urgent need to overhaul Decay not just in the Major Groups System / Concept , but all other SDG Systems, Structures, Procedures, Policies, Rules and Cultures in the entire 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 and its Leave No One Behind Concept that is aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans, Policies, Programs, Projects Interventions, 3PIs and 3PIs Training as One in ways that operationalize in practice Right to Development, Right to Participation, other relevant UNGA and HRC Declarations in each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.

Office of UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development, OS2RD Partnership Strategy

The Special Rapporteur on Right to Development September 2017 Report underlines the Special Rapporteur’s willingness to work meaningfully with UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary at all tiers; UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities at all levels; and other Stakeholders in each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.

To move from Talking and Thinking to Action and Accomplishment, there is urgent need for the Special Rapporeur on Right to Development to consider adopting the FAO Partnership Strategy and improving on same to work out Working OS2RD Partnership Strategy with each of the 6 Stakeholder Blocks and in ways that promote and protect better commitment, collaboration, cohesion, cooperation and coordination in each specific CSnNSrRG level in all 193/306 UN Member States.

OS2RD Partnership Strategy – Kick Start Mutual Collaboration Events and Activities

The OS2RD 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 – 6 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.

However to practicalize these changes, there is a need to Rethink Action Agenda Items in Section VII Methods of Work, given the reality that overt and overt measures have been taken by relevant UNO Entities to ensure that the Public in UN Member States do not have access to the Special Rapporteur on Right to Development Report September 2017.

The Special Rapporteur needs to ensure that all future Reports released by OS2RD during the remainder of his tenure are Vision and Words with Action and that all Duty Bearers on 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 fully Implement aspects of the Report Conclusions and Recommendations for which they have statutory responsibility, with effective Monitoring and Evaluation of this Implementation.


Pilot Program and Scale Up Program

The Best way to Learn to Swim is to get into the Swimming Pool. The Best way to Test the Good Ideas and Pertinent Suggestions the OS2RD Team; other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Teams; UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary Teams would harvest from Feedback on Special Rapporteur on Right to Development September 2017 Report is to start immediately a Pilot Program and Scale Up Program.

Way Forward

Innovation and Creativity are Keys as we face Community to Global Challenges of Modernization and Climate Change in the 21st Century, Right to Development, Right to Participation, Ending Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty Worldwide.

The correct answers to Right to Development and 2030 Agenda How questions could be found first, in selecting One Worldwide Approach, and second in establishing Pilot Programs to test good ideas and pertinent suggestions harvested from Feedback to the Right to Development September 2017 Report and Scale Up Programs at National, Regional and Global levels, for ideas and suggestions that Pilot Programs identify as Working.
As long as Stakeholders continue to use multiple, sometimes divergent Approaches and as long as ideas and suggestions cannot be tested to determine what works and how it could be expanded and what is not working and how it could be corrected, it would be uphill task achieving increasing convergence between Right to Development Vision and 2030 Agenda Vision Intention and Reality in all or most of the 193/306 UN Member States by target date.

Conclusion

In the work towards achieving the Right to Development Vision and 2030 Agenda Vision ambitions by Target date, fundamental issues that ought to have been settled by end 1st quarter 2015, that is, 6 months before World Leaders endorsed the historic document are still outstanding in 4th quarter 2017, that is, 21 months after the SDGs have been endorsed. 

The FAO, other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities including OS2RD are fully aware that without effectively grappling with Climate Change Impact on Agriculture, the possibility of achieving the Hunger Goal of the SDG is bleak. This in turn means achieving the Poverty Goal and related SDG  / 2030 Agenda Goals will be uphill Task.

FAO, other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF and OS2RD can help Countries identify all Research and Knowledge Gaps in Right to Development Vision and fill in such a way as to achieve increasing convergence between Right to Development Vision Intention and Reality that is interlinked, interdependent and interconnected with work towards achieving increasing convergence between New NRMAP, NRMAP, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each of the 193/306 Member States Vision Intention and Reality.

To achieve these, there is need for Re-engineering FAO that is integral part of Re-engineering each UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF Entity, including OS2RD and in ways that Correctly Test all Good Ideas and Pertinent Suggestions harvested from feedback on the Special Rapporteur on Right to Development September 2017 Report.

Should Points made in this Paper resonate positively with OS2RD, FAO, other UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF Entities and UN Member States: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary Entities, we are glad to be invited to participate in its Implementation.

There are Bright Prospects of Success, should OS2RD, 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, New NRMAP Vision and 2030 Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 Agenda 21 Vision Intention and Reality across our World.

Foreword

We applaud the Federal Government for demonstrated determination to meaningfully tackle Productivity and Empowerment Challenges in Nigeria through several ongoing Initiatives.

It is pertinent to note that in seeking to grapple effectively with real and complex challenges of Productivity and Empowerment on the ground in each Community, in each of 774 Local Governments, in each of the 36 States and FCT, Nationwide and beyond, there is a need for the Federal Government to recognize that it has to simultaneously grapple with Agriculture Development and Sustainable Development; Food Security and Nutrition Security; National Security and Religious Tolerance; New Cooperatives Movement, International Development and International Security real and complex challenges / problems on the ground in each Community,  Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context.

The National Bureau of Productivity; Federal Ministry of Budget and Planning; Federal Ministry of Industry and Trade; Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, Federal Ministry of Environment, Federal Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, Federal Ministry of Finance, Central Bank and the Development Finance Banks, especially BoA and BoI and other relevant Federal Government Agencies; each has Central Role to Play in the work towards the full implementation as well as the effective monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the good ideas, pertinent  suggestions, conclusions and recommendations set out this Concept Note, particularly in the specific area of Feeding the 170 Million Nigeria Citizens with Nutritious Foods and Drinks.

The issue of Financial Cooperatives for Agriculture Development is Key to achieving Strategic Objective of Nutritious Foods and Drinks for all Nigeria Citizens – Children, Youth, Women, Men and Elders, especially the Poor and is also an issue that the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the Central Bank and the Development Finance Banks, especially BoA and BoI need to jointly take critical look at, if Agro Producers, especially Family Farmers, Agro Input Suppliers and Agro Processors - Micro, Small, Medium, Large and Multinational Enterprises are to be more effectively mobilized in the great task towards Ending Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty in Nigeria within record time.

As 2/3 of the poor in Nigeria engage in Agriculture, Modernizing and Mechanizing Agriculture as well as Strengthening link between Food, Agriculture, Nutrition, Health, Lifestyle and Wellbeing within Linked Global Agenda or 2030 Transformation Agenda, National Development Agenda, State Development Agenda, Local Government Development Agenda and Community Development Agenda is the most viable way forward to end hunger, malnutrition and poverty in each Community, in each of 774 Local Governments, in each of the 36 States and FCT, National and International levels on successful and sustainable basis.

NEHMAP Initiative

The New End Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty, NEHMAP Program is an Initiative of International Society for Poverty Elimination / Economic Alliance Group, ISPE / EAG aimed at promoting Spirit of Enterprise as Antidote to Poverty through implementing Agriculture Revolution Program that is productive and profitable for putting food at affordable prices in the stomach of our people, particularly the poor and money in their pocket.

The Unit of implementing NEHMAP on fresh farmland is Community Integrated Farm Estate, CIFE – Type 1 using best low cost modernized and mechanized agriculture – crops, forestry, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture: pre harvest, harvest and post harvest practices, as appropriate to specific community, on a minimum of 500 Hectares of Land per location.

The Unit of implementing NEHMAP on existing farmland is Community Integrated Farm Estate, CIFE Type 2 using best low cost modernized and mechanized agriculture – crops, forestry, livestock, fisheries and aquaculture: pre harvest, harvest and post harvest practices, as appropriate to specific community, based on reallocation of existing farmland with expansion and extension to all available unutilized farmland to build Economically Viable Community Integrated Farm Estate per location.

CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 will have multiple cropping cycle production per year, processing, packaging, storage and marketing facilities with residential quarters. CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 will be powered 24 / 7 with electricity generated from human and agriculture waste. NEHMAP Members participating in CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 will be Organized within Sustainable Agriculture Solutions Association, SASA. SASA also support farms owned by Members outside NEHMAP CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 Land, provided these meet minimum certain size to be economically viable in a mechanized and modernized agricultural practice setting.


NEHMAP CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 and its SASAs’ will promote and protect sustainable solutions to identified 6 fundamental problems: Land, Water, Manpower, Market / Price, 419 in Agriculture and Fund Raising as applicable to specific location context. The operationalization in practice of these six comprehensive solutions, will include establishing an Agric Exchange, Farm Clinic (Plants, Animals, Human), eliminating 419 in Agriculture, Agriculture Value Chain Development and raising fund to finance NEHMAP CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 and NEHAP SASA Initiatives under the Slogan “Let us work together to benefit together”, “Kajijo Se Kajijo Je” in Yoruba and equivalent translation in all remaining Nigerian Languages.


NEHAP CIFE Type 1 and Type 2 when fully developed will have 5 Estates - Farm Estate, Industrial Estate, Commercial Estate, Engineering Estate, Residential Estate and Commodity Exchange. Funding will be through Agriculture Revolution Investment Fund, ARIF with NEHMAP Multipurpose Cooperative Society – Primary Society; NEHMAP Multipurpose Cooperative Union – Secondary Society and NEHMAP Multipurpose Cooperative Bank and NEHMAP Multipurpose Cooperative Central Society – Central Society; NEHMAP Sustainable Agriculture Solutions Associations, NEHMAP SASA and NEHMAP Farm Clinic for Plants, Animals, Farmers and Family, as Main Pillars.

The Primary Societies will be managed by Peers with effective support of Professionals. The Secondary Societies and Central Society will be managed by Professionals. Government is urged to provide appropriate amendments to existing Cooperatives Law in each of the 36 States and FCT that could effectively support the development of a legal and regulatory environment for the creation and development of NEHMAP Multipurpose Cooperatives: Primary Society, Secondary Society and Central Society as One, as Key Driver of NNAR-FCPR and NGRGDS Initiative that Work.

NEHMAP SASA provides several Services to Members, including Knowledge Sharing to discuss Farm / Processor / Commerce problems and solutions; Members Training to improve Farm / Processor / Commerce Productivity and Farm / Processor / Commerce  Profit; Technical Services to diagnose Animal / Plant diseases, prescribe treatment, apply treatment; Technical Services to diagnose Processor / Commerce problems, prescribe treatment and apply treatment; Technical Services to source credible Farm / Processor / Commerce  input etc.

Nigeria Citizens that join NEHMAP as Farmer, Processor, Commerce, Investor or Service Provider; will learn HOW to do new things in new ways and HOW to make money in Agriculture – Production, Processing, Commerce and Supplies and related Initiatives.

It is pertinent to note that Farmers / Processors / Commerce can only make money – good money in Agric – Crops, Forestry, Livestock Fisheries and Aquaculture in Nigeria of today, when Education, Technology, Research, Entrepreneurship and Investment are put to good use in their Agric Business that is well managed as a good business concern, therefore NEHMAP Initiative is built of Business Model and not Grant Model.

NEHMAP Cooperatives Model – 5 Pillars
  1. Humanitarian Driven not Commercial Driven
  2. Transformation Oriented not Profit Oriented
  3. Seek Profit for Going Concern Sake
  4. Seek Economic Justice for Free Youth, Men and Women through Free Enterprise
  5. Blended Social and Solidarity Economy Enterprise, SSEE and Inclusive Enterprise

Sustainable Solutions to Fulani Herdsmen Menace

The Fulani Herdsmen Menace is the BIGGEST Corruption in Nigeria today. Unchecked NOW, it is Time Bomb that will explode sooner than later (given current levels of frayed nerves against climate change, sustainable agriculture and depressed national economy challenges) to produce outcome that make Boko Haram child’s play.

The Buhari Administration has spent over US$2 billion scarce resources that ought to have been spent on National Development Initiatives, yet Boko Haram is still real and present danger and the rehabilitation of Internal Refugees back to their devastated homes is yet to meaningfully start. One can then imagine what it would cost Nigeria to tackle detonated Fulani Herdsmen Menace Time Bomb.

We urge the 36 State Governments and State Houses of Assembly, the Federal Government and the National Assembly to recognize that any attempt to achieve New Nigeria Agriculture Revolution Vision Ambitions, including each of the 36 States New Agriculture Revolution Vision Ambitions that does not include Sustainable Solutions to Fulani Herdsmen Menace is Dead at Birth and Motion without Movement and Meaning.

To achieve Sustainable Solutions to Fulani Herdsmen Menace, there must be Nigeria Rescue Mission that Work and in ways that effectively address the New Nigeria National Challenge. ISPE/EAG had made submissions to President Buhari and Ag President Osinbajo in this regard, but the Presidency has been silent.

The Fulani Herdsmen Menace needs to be addressed alongside ongoing Agitations in the Land. The issues go beyond what the National Council of States can handle hence urgent need for Emergency Extraordinary Meeting, EEM, to discuss Sustainable Solutions to Fulani Herdsmen Menace, Agitations and Nigeria Rescue Mission be scheduled within two weeks. The Participants at this EEM shall be:-
a)      Ag President
b)      All Former Presidents and Vice Presidents
c)      Senate Leadership
d)      National Judicial Council Leadership
e)      House of Representatives Leadership

g)      SSG and HOSF
h)      All Governors
i)        All remaining Federal Executive Council Members
j)        All High Command Army, Navy, Airforce, Military Intelligence, DSS, NIA, Police, NSCDC
k)      All Trustees National Council Traditional Rulers of Nigeria, NCTRN.
l)        Supreme Council of Islam in Nigeria Leadership
m)   Christian Association of Nigeria Leadership
n)      Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria Leadership
o)      Major Muslim Missions Leadership
p)      ISPE/EAG Team

The EEM discussions shall focus on:-
a)      16 March 2016 Letter to President Buhari through DSS Ondo State Command and DG DSS.
b)      30 March 2017 Letter to President Buhari through NSCDC Ekiti State Command and Commandant General NSCDC.
c)      19 June 2017 Letter to Ag President Osinbajo
d)      New Nigeria National Development Challenge.

There is urgent need for Nigeria Youth (Age 18 – 40); Adults (Age 41 – 60) and or Eminent Nigerian Patriots (Age 61 – 90): Legal Luminaries, Emeritus Professors and Distinguished Professionals – from the 6 Geopolitical Zones, to send Open Letter to President Buhari on Nigeria @ 57 - State of the Nation, raising pertinent issues and DEMANDING Investigation in National Interest aimed at finding answers to the following questions:-
a)      Is the Letter to President Buhari through DSS in Ondo State Command or DSS Headquarters? If yes, can the State Command or Headquarters High Command explain within 72 hours why validly addressed letter to President Buhari was not delivered?
b)      Is the Letter to President Buhari through DSS in Office of President? If yes, can President Buhari explain to Nigerians within 72 hours the specific Actions he took on such letter of Urgent National Importance?
c)      Is the Letter to President Buhari through NSCDC in Ekiti State Command or NSCDC Headquarters? If yes, can the State Command or Headquarters High Command explain within 72 hours why validly addressed letter to President Buhari was not delivered?
d)      Is the Letter to President Buhari through NSCDC in Office of President? If yes, can President Buhari explain to Nigerians within 72 hours the specific Actions he took on such letter of Urgent National Importance?
and come up with clear Recommendations and Conclusions for successful resolution of all identified root cause or primary cause problems, including sanctions to offenders, aimed at Moving forward in the Common Interest and Common Future of all Nigerians, that would be presented as Policy Brief for discussion during the EEM.

Avoiding National Chaos and Disaster

In the ongoing process of addressing Fulani Herdsmen Menace and Agitations, the probability is getting increasingly higher that Nigeria in continuing acceleration on MADning (Mutually Assured Destruction) Road to DOOM, irreversibility point may be passed before the Nigeria Governments 3 tiers and 3 arms- Executive, Parliament, Judiciary; Nigeria Parliaments – 3 tiers; Nigeria Academics; Nigeria Citizens and Nigeria Media as Individual and Joint Stakeholders Groups appreciate need to Reason and Get Real. Allowed to occur Chaos and Disaster producing Nigeria National Crises at level not seen in recent Centuries would be unleashed. This would Catalyze Chaos and Disaster producing unprecedented National Crises in AU Countries, EU Countries, Countries in rest of Europe and Countries in the rest of the World. Yet there are Bright Prospects of Nigeria Rescue that Deliver Stronger Nigeria, Stronger Africa, Stronger UK, Stronger EU, Stronger Europe and Stronger World, should the Nigeria shift to accelerating on MAPing (Mutually Assured Prosperity) Road to BOOM before irreversibility point is reached on the MADning Road to DOOM.

Changing our World to Avoid Globalization as Force for Evil 3rd Wave

The reality of Brexit is that our World will not remain the same. Our World must choose between Brexit as Force for Evil – UK and EU continuing to accelerate on MADning (Mutually Assured Destruction) Road to DOOM, pulling down countries across our World through Globalization as Force for Evil 3rd Wave giving urgent levels of Muddled Thinking and Mistrust on UK side and Rigidity and Selfishness on EU side. UK and EU need to change to Brexit as Force for Good and accelerate on MAPinng (Mutually Assured Prosperity) Road to BOOM that Deliver Stronger UK, Stronger EU, Stronger Europe and Stronger World. This change needs to be made before UK reach irreversibility point on MADning Road to DOOM.

The fundamental issues at stake are too important to be left in the hands of UK and EU Authorities alone. Now is the Time for UN System: UNO, WBG, IMF; other North Countries and South Countries to get involved and help both UK and EU sides Reason and Get Real before they self destroy each other and other Countries – North and South in our World today in the process.

Youth: Age 18 – 40 Arise – World Call Obey?

Youth Age 18 – 40 in each UN Member State Arise: Nigeria, Africa; UK, EU, Europe; US, China and World Call Obey for World Sustainable True Development through Agenda 2030: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country development Plans in each North and South Country – all 193/306 UN Member States. Will Youth in Nigeria, Africa; UK, EU, Europe; US, China and World pick up the Gauntlet? ........

Adults: Age 41 – 60 and Elders: Age 61 – 90 Arise – World Call Obey?

The Youth cannot do this National and International Task of Changing our World for Good alone. Adults Age 41 – 60 – Fathers and Mothers and Elders Age 61 – 90 – Grandfathers and Grandmothers have much to contribute in support of the Youth. Adults and Elders in each UN Member State Arise: Nigeria, Africa; UK, EU, Europe; US, China and World Call Obey for World Sustainable True Development through Agenda 2030: AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country development Plans in each North and South Country – all 193/306 UN Member States. Will Adults and Elders in Nigeria, Africa; UK, EU, Europe; US, China and World pick up the Gauntlet? ........

Adults and Elders will you be happy leaving a Worse World Legacy to your Children and Grandchildren? Where are the National and Global Eminent Personalities – Legal Luminaries; Emeritus Professors, Distinguished Professionals – All Disciplines, that are Willing and Ready to pick up the Gauntlet?......

Is UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development Report 2017 a Secret Document?

We strongly commend Mr Saad Alfaragi, the UN Special Rapporteur on Right to Development on the release in September 2017 of his Report on 30 years of Right to Development. We are concerned that this important Report is yet to be made available to the Public. The full implementation of the Report’s Recommendations and Conclusions with effective Monitoring and Evaluation of this Implementation in each of 193/306 UN Member States is Key to achieving 2030 Agenda Vision Ambitions and its Leave No One Behind Concept in each UN Member State – North or South.

Paradigm Shifts

To make Right Choice, Now is Time for 5 Nigeria Stakeholder Groups – Nigeria Governments, Nigeria Parliaments, Nigeria Citizens, Nigeria Academics and Nigeria Media (TV, Radio, Print, Online) to Reason and Get Real. One Day Delay in both Government and Peoples sides jointly recognizing that our Dear Nigeria today needs a paradigm shift from Talking and Thinking to Action and Accomplishments for Results. That is at the community level, at the sub-national level, at the country level, at the sub-regional level, at the regional level, and at the global level, we all need to make these things happen:
a)   jointly making paradigm shifts from working in silos to working intersectorially in synergy;
b)   from multiple approaches to common approaches that continuously improve convergence, alignment and harmony;
c)   from business as usual to business unusual;
d)  from parrotting change to practicing change;
e)  from academic research aimed at advancing frontiers of knowledge to development research aimed at significant improvement in critical contemporary measures of service, speed, costs, quality and where necessary revenue;
f)   from talking and thinking to Action and Accomplishment.
         May be One Day too late.

Multi Stakeholder Partnerships / Platforms: MSPs

The Nigeria Parliaments cannot Design and Deliver Nigeria Rescue Mission  Sustainable Solutions alone but need to Cooperate with other Stakeholders: Nigeria Governments; Nigeria Academics; Nigeria Citizens and Nigeria Media (Hexagonal Leadership) within Multi Stakeholders Partnership / Platform for Sustainable Development Solutions, MSP-SDS Hexagonal Leadership working in CASH - Collaboration, Alignment, Synergy and Harmony to Drive Mass Mobilization for Social Justice and Economic Reform, MAMSER to achieve increasing convergence in Agitations as Force for Good Intention and Realty in each specific Community, Sub-national, National, Sub-regional, Regional and Global location context.

Moving forward, for Parliament Members willing to pick up the gauntlet, the Action Next Step is MSP-SDS Membership Drive starting from 4 Communities:-
1.         Parliament Members - All Parties or Coalition of Parties in Parliament (Nigeria – Senate and House of Representatives at National and House of Assemblies at State levels).
2.         Journalists - Executives Editors Reporters - Radio, TV, Print, Online from Public and Private Media Houses.
3.         Drivers - Activists, Organizers, Mobilizers from all Ethnic Nationalities.
4.         Philanthropists - Events and Activities Sponsors and Donors from all Ethnic Nationalities.

MSP-SDS and related MSPs including MSP for Social Justice and Economic Growth, MSP-SJEG are needed to Organize, Orientate and Discipline the 5 Nigeria Stakeholder Groups to be Effective and Efficient Moving Force Driving TRANSFORMATION of Nigeria Society


Conclusion 


These are indeed trying times for Nigeria with many Governments owing Workers many months salaries. The fundamental issues highlighted in the Paper need to be effectively addressed if sustainable solutions are to be found to War on Hunger, War on Poverty and War on Terror in each Community, in each of 774 Local Governments, in each of the 36 States and FCT, as well as in Nigeria (National), Africa, UK, Europe, Canada, US and rest of the World and this calls for more spirited effort at addressing Food Security, Nutrition Security and Sustainable Agriculture Dimension of the 2030 Transformation Agenda: AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 as One. Presidency and Federal Government can help National and International Stakeholders set new priorities and face new direction for design and delivery of required levels of Attitudinal, Behavioural, Systems, Structures, Policies, Processes, Communication, Accountability, Rules and Cultures Changes within appropriate Sustainable Development; Service Delivery; Servant Leadership; Multi Stakeholder Partnerships/Platforms and Monitoring and Evaluation Frameworks through determined implementation and evaluation of this Draft Concept Note to achieve Vision of Nigeria without Hunger, Malnutrition and Poverty and in record time.


There are bright prospects of success, if the right thing is done and on time.
