Prepare: In this discussion post, you will examine one of the best-known intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), the United Nations (UN), which was founded in 1945 and currently has 193 Member States. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has identified 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapters 3 and 4 of your course text, watch the Transitioning from the MDDs to the SDGs (Links to an external site.) video created by the SDG program on the UNDP’s web page, and chose one of the 17 goals listed on the web page Sustainable Development Goals (Links to an external site.) and review the current projects. You need to click on “more” at the end of the short description. This link will take you to the full description of the project.
Reflect icon Reflect: As you watch the Transitioning from the MDGs to the SDGs video, please consider the following questions:
Do you think IGOs will bring about unified global societies?
Are the individual and collective benefits to member states worth sacrificing portions of their sovereignty?
Write icon Write: Once you reflect the questions above, analyze how IGOs, such as the UNDP, benefit the global environment. What are the political, social, and economic ramifications of IGOs involvement? You must write at least 300 words, supporting your claims with examples from the required material and/or scholarly resources. Please cite your sources in APA format both in-text and in full reference citations at the end of the post.
