Briefing # 8: 15th Anniversary of 9/11: Rethinking War on Terror – Central Role for SDG Vision and Words with Action?
Global Call to US Leaders, Europe Leaders, World Leaders, Representatives of 193 UN Member States, 9 Major Groups, other CSOs’ and other Stakeholders.
By Lanre Rotimi and Peter Orawgu.                                       11 September 2016


15 years after the sad event of 11 September 2001, there is a need to reflect deeply on root problems that led to this event and progress made finding sustainable solutions to same. This is more so when this 15th anniversary coincide with 135th Labor Day in US and 1st year after World Leaders endorsed the SDG.

It is pertinent to note that levels of poverty and inequality in US and across our World are at appalling high levels; that inequality is a cause and product of poverty and poverty is a cause and product of human rights violations, therefore a human rights approach to implementing all 17 Goals of the SDG as applicable to specific context – Community to Global can be very helpful.

It is pertinent to note further that fundamental political and sensitive issues that ought to have been settled 6 months before endorsement of the SDG are still outstanding 12 months after endorsement of the SDG; that the US has spent 3 – 4 Trillion Dollars, yet the overarching lessons learnt in the War on Terror in past 15 years is that no lessons have been learnt.

As the 71st UNGA begin 13 September 2016, the appalling situation in Nigeria and Africa, UK and Europe and US and rest of the World suggest urgent need for pause to reflect on 71 years of UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF, to determine if the UN System is fit for the 21st Century alongside reflecting on flaws and failures in Development, Diplomacy, Defense, Democracy and Data with a view to determining whether War on Terror could be won without sustainable solutions to AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each of the 193/306 UN Member States How questions, including the DOING of How.

Reconfiguring our World












The World we have today is one in which many countries – developed and developing are experiencing hunger in all its forms – absolute, chronic and hidden and poverty in all its forms – extreme poverty and relative poverty; terrible human tragedies – civil wars and interstate wars. Europe is confronting many challenges in asylum seekers and financial crises as well as Brexit. Many Local Governments and State Governments in US are bankrupt. In fact if the US Dollar is uncoupled from the World Dollar, the US National Government will be bankrupt. Yet the US in seeking to Win War on Terror is determined to embark upon another Arms Race that is a Luxury it cannot afford.

Today, National Economic Growth largely does not trickle down to benefit the poor in the rural communities in both developed and developing Countries. Can we get the World We Want, if concerned Stakeholders do not jointly answer AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 How questions in ways that address these real and complex problems on the ground in each Community in each of 193/306 UN Member States? Can this be achieved without Fixing the UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF that is linked with Reconfiguring our World?

A situation where a Cow in Europe and US, is subsidized by about US$ 2 a day and over 2 Billion Poor People live on less than US$ 2 a day is a Scar on the Conscience of World Leaders. The Agriculture System in the US and Worldwide is in decay and needs urgent overhaul and in ways that effectively link sustainable solutions to Food, Agriculture, Nutrition, Heath, Lifestyle and Wellbeing on one hand and Informality, Formality, Inequality, Inclusive Growth, Poverty Elimination and Environmental Sustainability on the other hand.

A situation where Developed Countries: seek contradictory political and economic goals for the same US$ of Foreign Aid, as well as give US$1 of Aid to block US$10 of Trade should no longer be tolerated, if we are to Get the World We Want. The Aid System in US and Worldwide is in decay and needs urgent overhaul and in ways that effectively link sustainable solutions to Aid, Trade, Debts, Corruption, Terrorism on one hand and Development Effectiveness, Development Impact, Development Results, Development Justice and Development Rights on the other hand.

The effective answer to AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 How questions should address these and all related real and complex sub-national, national, sub-regional, regional and global problems on the ground, if we are to Get the World We Want. As long as US Leaders and World Leaders fail to learn lessons of history, they will continue to make mistakes of history. Progress can only be made in the work towards rescuing our fragile Planet if US Leaders and World Leaders recognize that should they continue to reject Ordered Change, they certainly make Disordered Change Inevitable.

US Leaders and World Leaders need to recognize that in working HARDER doing the same old things in the sale old ways, they are in reality creating favorable climate for Terror to Thrive and for Poverty, Hunger, Inequality, Injustice, Impunity, Corruption and related problems to thrive within and between Countries both Developed and Developing in our World today.


US Leadership












The US Presidency is said to have 3 Offices – Office of President – White House; Office of Parliamentarian – American Congress and Office of Public – American Citizen. Our study finding is that there is a 4th Office of Security – High Command in Pentagon, FBI and CIA.

It is worrisome that these 4 Offices in deploying Vengeance and Injustice rather than Forgiveness and Justice are unknowingly helping the Enemy to Win the War on Terror as well as accelerating US Decline. Should the 4 Offices change Strategy to work SMARTer doing new things in new ways; establishing new partnerships to drive new collaboration, new cooperation, new cohesion and new coordination from Community to Global levels within New US National Development Vision and New US International Development Vision, real and complex US internal problems as well as World problems that appear to be Mountains will suddenly become mole hills.


Food for Thought









Brookings Institute released this Paper about 10 years ago:
The fundamental issues raised then are still very relevant now. These two articles underline urgent need to Rethink War on Terror, if US Leaders and World Leaders are serious about avoiding World War III.



Re-establishing Country Led Monitoring and Evaluation Systems













The Country Led Monitoring and Evaluation Systems on both Developed and Developing Countries sides are is a State of Decay.

There is a need for New Monitoring Systems that promote and protect Quality of Service in each Duty Bearer through identifying:-
1.     Increase in convergence between Projected Results and Actual Results and How it could be sustained or improved.
2.     Increase in divergence between Projected Results and Actual Results and How it could be corrected.
The System will generate Monitoring Reports on Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Quarterly, Half Yearly and Annual basis. Once Professionals know that their work will be objectively measured through credible Monitoring Reports; then What gets Measured Gets Done.

There is a need for New Evaluation Systems that promote and protect Organization Learning in each Duty Bearer through identifying:-
1.     What is done correctly and How it could be improved.
2.     What is done wrongly and How it could be corrected.
3.     Best Practices and How it could be Benchmarked and Scaled Up.
4.     How to Build Bridge between Lessons Learning and Lessons Forgetting

The System will generate Evaluation Reports:-
1.     Short Term: 1 year; 3years; 5 years
2.     Medium Term: 7 years; 10 years; 15 years
3.     Long Term: 20 years; 25 years; 30 years
Once Professionals know that their decisions will be Objectively Assessed in the Short, Medium and Long Term, with reward or sanction as appropriate, even post humus; they will reflect more before taking any decision today.


The Design and Delivery of these New Monitoring Systems and New Evaluation Systems will be based on One Worldwide Approach to Evaluation that is an Integral Part of One Worldwide Approach to achieving AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 in each Community in each of 193/306 UN Member States.


Conclusion



These are indeed trying times. There is need to address fundamental issues of Denial, Deception and Delusion if sustainable solutions are to be found to War on Terror. There are bright prospects of success, if the right thing is done and on time.



God Bless UN. God Bless our World.

#endfulanimenace Campaign 3

NEHAP       FCSF
NEW END HUNGER AND POVERTY                         FULANI CATTLE SOLUTIONS FORUM

Statement by Lanre Rotimi, ISPE / EAG,
Ondo State NUJ Democracy Day Lecture 30, May 2016

“Herdsmen Attacks Farmers:  PMB Implement Nigeria Rescue Mission that Work”

In his 2016 Democracy Day Speech, President Buhari highlighted progress fighting Boko Hara, and strongly warned Niger Delta Avengers but maintained deafening silence on Fulani Herdsmen menace. If Mr. President allow himself to be branded Fulani President rather than Nigeria President, this can only worsen the complexity of the National Challenges and National Crises the Buhari Administration is grappling with. Why is President Buhari openly defending atrocities and criminality of his tribesmen and making his Governance burden heavier?

My name is Lanre Rotimi and I am honored to make this Statement on the topic of “Herdsmen Attacks Farmers: PMB Implement Nigeria Rescue Mission that Work” on behalf of the International Society for Poverty Elimination / Economic Alliance Group, New End Hunger and Poverty, NEHAP Initiative, NEHAP Agriculture Revolution and NEHAP Cooperative Multipurpose Societies for Agriculture – Crops, Livestock, Fisheries and Forestry Agriculture Business Workers, Owners, Investors, Suppliers and Advisers.

We congratulate the Chairman, Executives and Members of Ondo State NUJ for focusing “Herdsmen Attacks Farmers” as Theme for their 2016 Democracy Day Lecture and selecting Otunba Gani Adams as Lead Speaker. 

The Press needs to lead Nigerians to distinguish between PMB Body Language promoting discipline and honesty that should be commended and PMB Body Language promoting atrocities and criminality that must be condemned.

PMB Democracy Day Speech that omitted policy direction of his government towards finding lasting solution to Fulani Herdsmen Menace is fresh evidence that PMB Body Language promoting atrocities and criminality needs to STOP immediately, if PMB is genuinely interested in promoting and protecting National Interest. Otherwise, the ultimate consequences for PMB and indeed Nigeria and over 170 million Nigerians could be catastrophic.

PMBs’ good points including Body Language as Force for Good must be commended and celebrated. PMBs’ Body Language as Force for Evil must be contained and condemned. As all Great Men have Great Weaknesses, Nigerians will be putting Nigeria in harm’s way, if the Press does not spotlight urgent need to effectively manage PMBs’ Weaknesses, including Body Language as Force for Evil.

Let us be clear; as long as we keep calling spade, hand tool, we will continue to reject the fact that a rose by whatever name called remain a rose. We must recognize the fact that Fulani Leaders know Fulani Herdsmen have no regard for Authority and the Right of other Nigerians; that the only known Organized Private Sector among Pastoralists are Fulani Herdsmen; that to the Ordinary Nigerian Fulani Herdsmen is Generic Name for Fulani, Bororo, Hausa, Egbira etc Pastoralists; that Fulani constitute over 80% of these Ethnic Pastoralists; that Fulani Pastoralists Rights Stop Where Rights of other Nigerians – including Farmers Start; that Fulani Livestock is their Farm Business and Farmers Crops is their Farm Business; that Fulani Herdsmen in Protecting their Farm Business CANNOT Destroy with IMPUNITY the Farm Business of other Nigerians.

It appears President Buhari, Police and Military High Command did not weight the implication of admitting publicly, even to the international media that Herdsmen rampaging across all States in the Middle Belt and Southern Nigeria are Foreigners and that ECOWAS Protocol allow free entry into Nigeria. First, ECOWAS Protocol cannot demand that a Country freely allow Criminals into their Country who attack their Citizens at will, with impunity and without check. If any such ECOWAS Protocol exists, Nigeria under President Buhari MUST take urgent Steps to CHANGE such Protocol.

Secondly, the Nigerian President – a General of Generals is admitting that His Police, Military and Para Military Agencies including Immigration High Command are Grossly Incompetent or engaged in Grand Corruption and so they are looking on Helpless and Powerless as Foreigners – Criminals spread Blood and Tears across Nigeria. Clearly, such dirty linen should not be washed in the public by a President with his pedigree.

We are dealing with Governance Systems Failure. Governments must recognize that Fulani Menace is Grand Corruption – Pure and Simple. It is incomprehensible that Buhari Administration that claim to the Fighting Corruption, can be comatose and powerless Fighting Fulani Menace that is virtually All Embracing and All Inclusive of Commonly Occurring Forms of Corruption – Abuse of Power, Intimidation, Torture; Perversion of Justice, Criminal Behavior, Fake Evidence, Unlawful Detention, Frame Ups; Bribery and Graft, Extortion; Unauthorized Use of Public Office and Public Property; Manipulation of Regulations; Influence Peddling, Favor Brokering, Conflicts of Interest; Link with Organized Crime; Cronyism, Cover Ups; Illegal Surveillance etc.

Yes, Civil Servants and Security Agencies “Some of the Time” ignore or partially comply with Presidential Written and or Verbal Directives. However, Civil Servants and Security Agencies “All of the Time” COMPLY Fully with Presidential Written and or Verbal Directives that is backed by Clear and Urgent SIGNAL, because they know full well that sanction for sabotage will be prompt and grievous. Is lack of such Clear and Urgent SIGNAL not one of the reasons Fulani Menace is getting worse rather than abating?

Again, let us be clear – should Government continue to look on and allow Fulani Menace to become full blown at this time that nerves of other Nigerians are raw from Petrol Increases and other Economic Hardships, it could just the next Fulani Herdsmen Attack that would ignite National Challenge and Crisis that make Boko Haram Childs’ Play. Therefore, if Fulani Menace is not to DESTROY Nigeria while President Buhari looks on; Nigeria MUST DESTROY Fulani Menace with PMB as Chief Champion. Please NOTE that there is Difference between Destroying Fulani Menace which is Urgently Needed and Destroying Fulani that No One in His / Her Right Senses is Advocating for.

Destroying Fulani Menace is #endfulanimenace and calls for Nigeria Rescue Mission that Works Driven by recognition of the fact that the Fulani Menace underline root problems of Agriculture, Security, Development, Diplomacy, Peace, Climate Change, Culture, Governance, Accountability, Transparency, Justice, Corruption, Terrorism, Slavery, Law, Order, Sanctions Enforcement, Citizens Participation and Nigeria Factor. These are complex issues that demand strategic, tactical and professional response. The reality is that very few Consultants anywhere in our World today have the Hard Competences: Learning and Skills and Soft Competences: Character, Courage and Mindset to effectively support Governments, Farmers, Herdsmen, Security Agencies, Judiciary and their Partners in the work towards finding sustainable solutions, fully implementing these solutions with effective monitoring and evaluation of this implementation.

This is where Civil Society Organizations like OPC come in. Firstly, OPC must recognize that they have derailed from their Original Vision of Defending the Rights of Ethnic Yorubas’. Secondly, a Reformed and Reunited OPC should metamorphose from Ethnic Militia into Civilian Task Force focused on Promoting and Protecting Justice Access, Community Policing, Ending Hunger, Ending Poverty and Ending Corruption issues in the South West Zone as it affects all Peoples – Citizens and Residents in the Zone.

It is clear that things are really bad in our Country today; that it is Security Agencies – Police, Military, Para Military and Intelligence including their Civilian Task Force such as OPC; Journalists – Print, Radio, Television and Online and Development Cooperation Consultants with required minimum levels of Hard and Soft Competences that can help the Buhari Administration to Design and Deliver National Rescue Mission that works to find lasting solutions to Fulani Menace, Nigeria Factor and related real and complex Nigeria Sustainable Development Problems on the ground at each Community in each of 774 LGAs; 36 States, FCT, 6 Zones, National and International levels.

Garba Shehu said on NTA last Night that PMB looked Nigerians in the face and told us to swallow bitter pill of Petrol Price increase. Nigerians Complied. Nigerians in turn should look PMB in the face and DEMAND he swallow bitter pill of ending Body Language as Force for Evil. PMB should reciprocate by complying. Also it is in PMB’s enlightened self interest that he comply and without delay. All who genuinely love PMB – Fulanis and Non Fulanis; Nigerians and Non Nigerians within and beyond the shores of Nigeria who have unrestricted access to PMB should persuade and if necessary PRESSURE PMB to comply with this DEMAND. The future of the Buhari Presidency and indeed Nigeria could depend on whether or not PMB comply with this DEMAND and on time.

ACTION TIME: Everyone in this room: Please assume you are One on One with PMB and PMB is the Next Person to you. 1 Tap the Person 2. Then say after me: PMB: Fulani Menace is Real; Stop Looking On; #endfulanimenace NOW.

To Kick Start, we have copies of letter to PMB through DSS hand delivered on 17 March 2016 setting out sustainable solutions for #endfulanimenace that Buhari Administration seem to have ignored and yet have not set out alternative comprehensive solutions. Let the Press lead the Way and OPC continue to PUT on the Front Burner in the National Arena – Urgent Need for PMB to clearly answer this BIG QUESTION: Where is the Problem – Is it on DSS side – State Director did not pass letter to DG DSS? – let her provide evidence as to when letter left Akure or DG DSS did not pass letter to PMB? – let him provide evidence when letter was forwarded to State House. Is it on State House side – President Office did not pass letter to PMB or PMB did not act on the letter?

This country belongs to all Nigerians – Fulani Herdsmen, Farmers and other Nigerians. If PMB lead all Nigerians to effectively demonstrate the letters and spirit of our National Anthem and National Pledge in the Public and Private lives of each Nigerian – Elders, Men, Women, Youth and Children, AMAZING TRANSFORMATION would occur before our very eyes, the Nigeria Dream would be achieved and Nigeria would take her rightful place in the Comity of Nations.

God is READY to help us if PMB, Fulani Herdsmen, Farmers, Security Agencies, Judiciary, Media and other Nigerians are Ready to Help themselves.

We thank you for the privileged to address this gathering and Pray that the Nigeria Dream will be Reality in the lifetime of this Generation and the Touch will be passed on for Generations. Happy 2016 Democracy Day. God Bless you. God Bless Nigeria.

Global Push To Achieve SDGs Vision and Words with Action Agenda 28

ISPE       EAG
INTERATIONAL SOCIETY FOR POVERTY ELIMINATION                   ECONOMIC ALLIANCE GROUP

Establishing Positive Working Relationship: Focused Points for UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF Consideration and Appropriate ACTION

Summary

We at NEHAP / ISPE / EAG commend all on UN Member States Governments; UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and Partners sides working towards Design and Delivery of AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 Interventions Worldwide. Giant Strides and been made but much more remain to be done if UN Member States Governments; UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and Partners are to optimize their potential to better support Community to Global Stakeholders in the work towards achieving Financial, Environment and related Dimensions of Global Goals – AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21; Aligned and Harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans, in 306/193 UN Member States and in ways that help achieve 2030 Agenda Vision Ambitions by target date.

The starting point is recognition by 306/193 UN Member States Governments – Executive, Parliament and Judiciary at all levels; UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; CSOs/NGOs; Micro to TNC Businesses; Internal Consultants and External Consultants; Communication Strategy Experts; Attitudinal and Behavioral Change Experts; Academic and Research Institutions; Banks, Financial Institutions and Impact Investors that What questions have been over-answered and that Who pays for What, When and How questions, that is the DOING of How that have thus far been avoided or evaded, need to be more Professionally tackled and in ways that bring deploy Whole of Bank / Institution / Government / Community / Country / World Thinking to bear towards the sustainable solutions to Whole of Bank / Institution / Government / Community / Country / World Problems. This underlines need to recognize that Good Communication Strategy is not Razzmatazz and Sensation focused on Shadow but Connection and Understanding focused on Substance.

This Focused Points Paper set out issues for UN Member States Governments; UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF consideration and appropriate Action leading to the establishment of positive working relationship between UN Member States Governments; UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and NEHAP/ISPE/EAG New End Hunger and Poverty, International Society for Poverty Elimination, Economic Alliance Group; other like minded Academics, Scientists, Practitioners and Professionals that help achieve increasing convergence between each Partners Vision and Mission Ambitions.

1.     Focus on correct answers to How To(s)
There is a need for Policy Makers and Decision Makers on 306/193 UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS sides to recognize that they have agreed on the “what” in regard to partnership and share common interests and goals, yet the details on “how” still need to be developed, that many UN Events scheduled specifically to find correct answers to these “how” questions end up finding answer to “what” questions. To achieve this there has to be a Focus on correct answers to How To(s) and in ways that help achieve increasing convergence between Theory and Practice and Global / National Vision Intention and Reality.

2.     Focus on Understanding
There is a need for Policy Makers and Decision Makers on 306/193 UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS sides to recognize that: you can’t defeat real enemy you don’t understand; you can’t solve root problems you don’t understand and you can’t answer big questions you don’t understand. To have these required levels of understanding, Stakeholders on 306/193UN Member States, UN System including WBG and IMF and MGoS sides need to consider facing new direction and adopting new priorities and on time.

To effectively address these issues in a holistic manner there is need for:-
  1. Revolution 2030
Design and Delivery of Global Goals and National Goals – revised AAAA, SDG, COP 21 Outcome, Agenda 21 etc aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans,  that will be successful on sustainable basis greatly depends on Design and Delivery of Revolution 2030, a set of Interlinked, Interconnected and Interdependent Primary Revolutions: Water, Agriculture, Environment, Climate Change, Enterprise, Government, Applied Research, Attitudinal and Behavioral Change, Data, Digital and other Primary Revolutions as well as Health, Education, Nutrition, Justice, Anti Corruption, Security, Peace and other Secondary Revolutions Driving all Global Goals Aligned and Harmonized to Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each UN Member State.

  1. MSP 2030
Design and Delivery of Revolution 2030 that will be successful on sustainable basis greatly depends on Design and Delivery of a Master Multi Stakeholder Platform, MSP for all Global Goals Aligned and Harmonized to Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each UN Member State and MSPs’ for each Action Agenda Item within AAAA, SDG, COP21, HLPF Outcome, ECOSOC Outcome etc Aligned and Harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each UN Member States.

3.     Capacity 2030
Design and Delivery of Revolution 2030 and Solidarity 2030 that will be successful on sustainable basis greatly depends of finding correct answers to How questions, fully implement these answers and effectively monitor and evaluate this implementation greatly depends on Design and Delivery of Capacity 2030 to address Individual Capacity issues of Demand and Supply of Hard Competences: Learning and Skills and Soft Competencies: Character, Courage, Mindset and Discipline; Institution Capacity Issues – Processes, Methods, Resources etc and Society Capacity Issues – Political, Economic, Social, Religious etc Space from Village to Global levels.

4.     Revolution 2030
Design and Delivery of Revolution 2030, Solidarity 2030 and Capacity 2030 that will be successful on sustainable basis greatly depends on Design and Delivery of Solidarity 2030; Village to Global Solidarity Mechanism that help bridge Gap between Political Leadership we need and Political Leadership we have from Village to Global levels.

Introduction

In response to German Government invitation to Workshop on Inequalities in September 2016, and against the background of German Government Initiative for addressing Financial Dimension of SDG through Think AAAA, NEHAP/ISPE/EAG is suggesting the idea of establishing positive working relationship with German Government as viable option for optimizing both Think AAAA and the Inequalities Workshop joint potential to contribute meaningfully towards supporting Community to Global Stakeholders on 306/193 UN Member States; UN System – UNO, WBG, IMF; CSOs/NGOs; Internal and External Consultants; Communication Strategy Consultants; Attitudinal and Behavioral Change Consultants; Academics and Researchers and Micro to TNC Businesses; Banks, Financial Institutions and Impact Investors sides to work SMARTer to achieve AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in 306/193 UN Member States by 2030 Target date.

The realities of Brexit and the formulation of the New Europe Global Strategy, EUGS underlines the fact that in the implementation of AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 and EUGS more work needs to be done. One of the areas for follow up is Security and Defense. The consequences for Global Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) need to be defined. Just as the Germans have after Global Consultation that is continuing published a White Paper; the EUGS needs an EU White Book and the SDG needs a World White Book or Security and Defense Strategy that will have to be developed. What should such as SDS entail? Will it not require additional efforts and a shift in priorities? Will it not cover a whole spectrum from stabilization, training and assistance to intervention operations? Will it not require a new approach to planning and evaluation cycles?

If there is to be real capability improvement, from Community to Global levels, it is clear that So far, the principle of voluntarism has provided an excuse for doing too little. A step-change is needed in order to move in the direction of greater transparency and accountability, citizen engagement and commitment. And transparency on long-term defense and procurement plans will be the first requirement. But sharing plans is not enough. The SDS should define a new system, based on monitoring, assessment and accountability of the member states’ efforts to solve capability shortfalls and to deepen European / Global defense cooperation. Such a system could be developed over time with data collection and assessment authority gradually shifting to the European / Global Defense Agency.

This Paper aims at highlighting points for discussion and negotiation, which successful could lead to the establishment of agreed positive working relationship.

The Argument

We observe that Policy Makers, Decision Makers, Managers and Officers are working HARDer doing the same old things in the same old ways and wondering why they are not getting new Results.

Our Study finding is that real and complex National and International Development Cooperation problems on the ground from Village to Global levels can be especially difficult but not impossible to solve on successful and sustainable basis; that there is more than enough resources – Influence, Technology, Innovation, Science, Arts, Manpower, Money, Land, Water and Spiritual to solve Political & Cultural; Economic & Financial; Social & Environmental; Religious & Moral; Peace & Security problems on the ground in each specific location – Village to Global in each of the 306/193 UN Member States in our World today.

Our argument is that should Policy Makers, Decision Makers, Managers and Officers on 306/193 UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS sides START working SMARTer doing new things in new ways, the much expected new Results will be obtained, even if many Stakeholders have to DO more with same. However, should Stakeholders continue with Business as Usual, the ultimate consequences could be catastrophic for all Citizens in each Country in our Fragile Planet.

HLPF 2016

The outcome of HLPF 2016 once more highlights the fact that there is increasing divergence between Rhetoric and Polemics and Reality and Action. For example Speakers at the opening of HLPF 2016 said - Effective development cooperation — marked by fresh thinking, better coordination and concrete action — would be critical to making good on the unprecedented opportunities presented by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

“The road ahead is undoubtedly complex,” said Mary Robinson, President of the Mary Robinson Foundation-Climate Justice, former President of Ireland and former United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, as she delivered a keynote address.  She emphasized nevertheless that development cooperation providers must recognize the unprecedented chance they now had to shape a more equitable world.  Noting that not all current ways of working would prove effective in implementing the 2030 Agenda, and that many mechanisms would need to be reformed or refreshed, she stressed that human rights and gender equality must underpin implementation of both the 2030 Agenda and the recently signed Paris Agreement on climate change.  Indeed, climate change solutions offered opportunities to help eradicate poverty, she added.

Also addressing the Forum, Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson commended Member States for having built a strong foundation for future development cooperation through the host of international agreements signed in 2015.  In particular, the 2030 Agenda, the Paris Agreement — as well as the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda for Development Financing — demanded new thinking and concrete actions that would permeate all levels of society.

Full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development would require reaching those lagging furthest behind as an urgent priority, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on 19 July 2016, as the Economic and Social Council continued the ministerial segment of HLPF 2016.
Reaching the poor and vulnerable would require targeted policies, active outreach and disaggregated information to inform decision-making, Secretary-General Ban told the Forum, as Heads of State and Government, Ministers and other high-level Government representatives joined experts and non-governmental organizations in a presentation of voluntary national reviews concerning implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals.
There must be greater recognition and understanding of the multiple dimensions of poverty and vulnerability and how they were interconnected, he emphasized.  “We must all learn, in national Governments, in local authorities, in business and civil society — and also at the United Nations — to think differently,” he said, stressing the need for efforts to transform policies and strategies in order to address the challenges of sustainability.
The above highlights of HLPF 2016 underline the fact that nothing new was said; the challenges and crises that existed before HLPF 2016 remain unaddressed and HLPF 2016 outcome, like outcome of past UN Events related to Agenda 2030 remain Vision and Words without Action and this is because How questions including DOING of How remain unanswered. As long as this remains the case World Leaders will continue to put the Cart before the Horse and so it will be uphill task seeking to achieve 2030 Agenda ambitions at all and certainly not by 2030 target date. Allowed to occur, the probability is that current World Political & Cultural; Economic & Financial; Social & Environmental Peace & Security; Religious & Moral; Legal & Governance problems will get worse with ultimate catastrophic consequences for Citizens on both Developed and Developing Countries.

Urgent Need for Review

Policy Makers and Decision Makers on 306/193 UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS (Major Groups and other Stakeholders) parrot Business Unusual and Change but practice Business and Usual and Anti Change. This is a major reason why UN Events set up specifically to find answers to “how” questions which is about “DOING” always end up finding answers to “what” questions which is about “SAYING”.

There are many reasons for this unfortunate state of affairs, including Competence, Attitudinal and Behavioural etc. Should Policy Makers and Decision Makers on 306/193 UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS sides genuinely desire to achieve Global Goals – AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 Aligned and Harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in each of the 306/193 UN Member States and on schedule dates, there is urgent need to review existing structure of ING Meetings, Global Consultations and National Consultation to better support discussing and establishing all necessary negotiations and arrangements for achieving increasing convergence between National / Global Vision Intention and Reality and on schedule dates.

One Worldwide Approach is not One Cap fits All; but a way of getting Village to Global Stakeholders to stop working in “silos” and start working in “teams”; to stop using “multiple approaches” some of which are divergent and start using “generic approach” adapted to meet unique and specific need of particular location or circumstance. One Worldwide Approach that would be adopted by Policy Makers and Decision Makers on 306/193 UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS will be a Known Approach with clear Principles, Instruments corresponding to each Principle, Practices and Database.

The only such Worldwide Common and Systemic Approach / One Worldwide Approach available in our World today, that meets criteria for One Worldwide Approach Recommended in SG Synthesis Report December 2014 is 3PCM (Policy, Program, Project Cycle Management Approach to Benefits Focused National and International Development Cooperation). Please let us know if you are aware of any other One Worldwide Approach that meets this Standard.

Clear Statements

1.     NEHAP/ ISPE / EAG have no power or intention to force any individual, institution or government to accept its international development cooperation solutions.
2.     No one individual, institution or government anywhere in our world today has all the answers to all of UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, HLPF Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21, etc How questions
3.     Correct answer to UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21, HLPF Outcome, UN Retreat on MSP Outcome etc How questions cannot be found in Desk Work - conferences, consultations and research driven by talking and thinking.
4.     Correct answer to UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, UN Retreat on MSP Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21, HLPF Outcome etc How questions can only be found in Desk Work - conferences, consultations and research and Field Work – theory, practice and partnership driven by action and accomplishment that is inclusive and effectively connect each community in each of 306/193 Member States to UN Headquarters New York.
5.     Current AAAA, SDG, COP21 processes each has flaws and failures arising from technical errors and mistaken priorities from village to global levels that need to be immediately corrected.
6.     Current Attitude and Behaviour of most Village to Global Stakeholders on both State Actors and Non State Actors fall below minimum certain levels required to find correct answer to UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21, HLPF Outcome etc How questions, especially DOING of How, full implement these answers with effective monitoring and evaluation of this implementation in ways that achieve Global Goals by 2030 target date.
7.     Current effort at answering UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21, HLPF Outcome etc How questions is at least one year behind. Renewed effort is required if lost ground is to be covered and if each community in each of 306/193 Member States is to accelerate on path to achieving Global Goals by 2030 Target date.
8.     Each day Decision Makers in each UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF Entity, 306/193 Member States and concerned Non State Actors sides delay or deny adopting or adapting existing sound answers to UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21, HLPF Outcome, UN Retreat on MSP Outcome etc How questions is one day too long. Allowed to continue, the ultimate consequences for our fragile planet could be catastrophic.

Vision and Words with Action

It is established that this review of SG Report on Follow Up and Review process like other ongoing processes, with exception on UNDP and UNDESA e-Discussion 2016 process, continue to avoid or evade finding clear and correct answers to How questions. The result is that these processes outcome documents remain Vision and Words without Action, that retain mistakes, flaws and failures of past outcome documents, some of which the processes were set up to correct.

We urge relevant authorities on UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; UN Member States – Executive, Parliament, Judiciary and MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs and Non MGos Member CSOs/NGOs sides to recognize that if they do not know why UN Member States rejected or ignored SG Report on Follow Up and Review, SG Synthesis Report etc they will not know how to revise these SG Reports and produce New SG Reports that will be accepted by UN Member States, fully implemented by all UN Member States and also ensure that all UN Member States, UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF and MGoS each contribute its quota towards the effective monitoring and evaluation of this implementation.

It is against this background that we urge relevant authorities on UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; UN Member States – Executive, Parliament, Judiciary and MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs and Non MGos Member CSOs/NGOs sides to consider the following points as basis for converting the revised SG Report on Follow Up and Review that could emerge from implementing these Resolutions, into Vision and Words with Action:-
1. The Resolutions cannot replace revising SG Report on Follow Up and Review to produce Vision and Words with Action Document.
2. Community to Global Engagement Mechanism on UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; UN Member States – Executive, Parliament, Judiciary and MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs and Non MGos Member CSOs/NGOs sides needs to be strengthened and in ways that effectively link each Community in each UN Member State with New York.
3. Community to Global Capacity Building on UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; UN Member States – Executive, Parliament, Judiciary and MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs and Non MGos Member CSOs/NGOs sides needs to be strengthened. This calls for tackling Challenges of Education, Capacity Building, Pro Poor Institutional Reform, Pro Poor Economic Growth and related matters all structured within:-
a) Inclusive EAT4SD: Education and Training for Sustainable Development – 5 Linkages: EAT4SD Theoretical and Practical Instruction; EAT4SD and Industry; EAT4SD at Different Levels – Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Vocational, Professional; EAT4SD at different Types of Institutions – Government, Private, NGO, Parochial, other’ EAT4SD and Extension – Government, Private, Pluralistic.
b) Inclusive CAB4SD: Capacity Building for Sustainable Development – 3 Levels: Individual – Hard Competences: Learning and Skills and Soft Competences: Character, Courage, Mindset and Discipline; Institution – Pro Poor Institution Reform Processes and Pro Poor Economic Growth Processes that Support Individuals practicing their Hard and Soft Competences in their Day to Day work and in ways that help achieve Corporate Goals and Vision and Society – Political; Cultural, Economic; Financial, Social; Environmental, Religious; Moral, Peace & Security Space for Institutions to Thrive on Chaos.
c) 3PI and 3PI Multidisciplinary Training, Research and Consultancy as One: Policy, Program, Project Intervention, 3PI and 3PI Training as One in each Action Agenda Item in AAAA, SDG, COP21 Outcome, Agenda 21 Aligned and Harmonized to Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in 306/193 UN Member States, UN System including WBG and IMF and MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs and Non MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs in Developed and Developing Countries sides.
d) Integrated Master Plans: Village to Global
e) Internal and External Consultants Support System: Community to Global
f)  Correct Diagnosis, Prescription, Surgery and Recovery Management System: Community to Global
g)  One Worldwide Approach to (a) – (f) and earlier part of (1).
4. Community to Global MSP for 2030 Agenda on UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; UN Member States – Executive, Parliament, Judiciary and MGoS Member CSOs/NGOs and Non MGos Member CSOs/NGOs sides needs to be strengthened. MSP for 2030 Agenda that will be successful on sustainable basis need to focus on Action on three fronts:-
a. Stakeholder Participation, Transparent and Accountable Action – All concerned Stakeholders National and Sub-national Governments: Executive, Parliament, Judiciary; Civil Society, Philanthropies, Multilateral Organizations, Businesses and many others including the Communities that are Target Beneficiaries of True Development Initiatives need to be meaningfully involved in an inclusive manner that is transparent. Each Stakeholder must be accountable to themselves and other Stakeholders for their action(s) or inaction(s) and in the later case accepting potential sanctions for lack of compliance with commitments. This call for Building Trust and Mutual Respect and in ways that ensure all partners are effectively represented in governance mechanisms and that all voices are heard.
b. Cooperative, Collaborative, Cohesive, Coordinated, Effective and Efficient Action – With the increasing diversity of partners involved in sub-national, national, sub-regional, regional and global development cooperation, it is more important than ever to avoid duplication and repetition of effort and fragmentation – problems which FfD Forum Outcome and HLTD Outcome, once more, underline as re-occurring decimals. Achieving 2030 Agenda Vision Ambition by target date call for Effective and Efficient Action through focusing Partnerships on specific Disciplines – Evaluation, Procurement, Institutional / Policy Reform etc, Services – Water, Education, Police etc , Sectors – Power, Telecomms, Finance etc and Issues – Governance, Leadership, Anti Corruption etc this does not mean that more and bigger Partnerships are the best solutions. MSPs need to be streamlined, all relevant Stakeholders need to be encouraged to participate actively in finding sustainable solutions in pilot programs and taking sustainable solutions to scale at National level and committed Leadership from each Stakeholder Group in the MSP is required to give MSPs the momentum they need to tackle complex sub-national, national, sub-regional, regional and global development cooperation challenges on the ground within the specific location - Community to Global, in which the MSP operate, stay on course and mobilize the mandate, manpower, money, material, machine and other resources required to get the job done.
c. Expertise, Exposure and Experience based Action - The reform of sub-national, national, sub-regional, regional and global development cooperation to meet today’s sustainable development challenges in each Community in each Member State call for changes in attitude, behavior, culture and mindset. Dialogue and learning from experience and exposure are essential to produce desired change. MSP for 2030 Agenda must emphasize the importance of learning from experience and exposure; building bridge between lessons learning and lessons forgetting; knowledge sharing, capacity building – individual, institution and society, patronage, standards, regulation and networking; enhancing the quality of development cooperation at levels appropriate for specific MSP as way of improving its impact, effectiveness and relevance; peer reviews that focus on how development cooperation is framed, managed and delivered; development cooperation – monitoring, reporting and  evaluation cycles that are used to support continuing adaptation etc.

The Development Cooperation Report 2015 proposes 10 success factors for MSPs that would have capacity to mobilize National and Global Collective Action for achieving SDG:-
1.   Secure High Level Leadership
2.   Ensure Partnerships are Country Led and Context Specific
3.   Avoid duplication of effort and fragmentation
4.   Make governance inclusive and transparent
5.   Apply the right type of partnership model for the challenge
6.   Agree on principles, targets, implementation plans and enforcement mechanisms
7.   Clarify roles and responsibilities
8.   Maintain a clear focus on results
9.   Measure and monitor progress towards goals and targets
10. Mobilize the required financial resources and use them effectively

It is clear that promoters and members of MSPs need practical help and technical support if their MSP is to pass the 10 success factors. This once more underlines urgent need for relevant authorities to find clear and correct answers to MSP, Lobbying, AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community and Country Development Plans in 306/193 UN Member States How questions and in ways that effectively address fundamental issues of OH3A2T2LRSP - Ownership, Harmonization, Alignment, Accountability, Attitude, Transparency, Transformation, Leadership, Learning, Results, Stakeholder Participation as applicable to specific context (2030 Agenda in whole or part) of Thematic Interest to the MSP and specific Location – Community to Global where the MSP operate. These arrangements cannot be left to occur on their own but need to be negotiated, discussed and established and on time.
5. The AAAA is the Financial Dimension of all 17 SDGs. The COP21 and Agenda 21 are the Environment Dimension of all 17 SDGs and need to be integrated into a Single Document. We have identified 10 Dimensions of all 17 SDGs. These are: Economic, Financial, Environment, Justice, Humanitarian, Corruption, Political, Social, Security and Reform Dimension of all 17 SDGs. These 10 Dimensions of all 17 SDGs each has Advocacy and Lobbying, Development Communication and Development Research, Planning and Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation, Data and Digitization, Performance Management and Measures of Success Components that are interconnected, interdependent and interlinked. There are therefore 16 Cross Cutting Themes that each demands an SG Report. The revised SG Report on Follow Up and Review cannot stand alone but must be complemented by remaining 15 SG Reports. Some of these SG Reports exist and need to be revised. Others need to be produced.
6. Creating Demand as basis for Creating Supply. To effectively and efficiently address crisis and challenges from Community to Global levels in each of the 16 Cross Cutting Themes, there is a need to Create Demand for required Professional Services as basis for Creating Supply of these Professional Services.
7. Creating Learning Society. To effectively and efficiently address crisis and challenges from Community to Global levels in each of the 16 Cross Cutting Themes, there is a need to Create Learning Society for required Service Providers and Service Users to thrive on chaos.
8. Reform MGoS. The MGoS Concept in SDG is borrowed from MG Concept in Agenda 21 and UNEP Vision. It is clear that without Reforming the MGoS, it cannot deliver on its duties and responsibilities in the work towards achieving 2030 Agenda by target date. It is not just MGoS that need to undergo Reforms, each entity in UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF as well as each entity in UN Member States – Executive, Parliament and Judiciary need to also undergo Reforms that produce National and International Development Cooperation Systems fit for the 21st Century.
The co-facilitators of review of SG Report on Follow Up and Review process are suggesting Observer Participant Status for MGoS. The co-facilitators of the HLPF Modalities process are suggesting Active Participant Status for MGoS. There is a need for all co-facilitators in all ongoing processes to be on the same page in suggesting Active Participant Status for MGoS.
9. Reforming ECOSOC Accreditation. With over 4,000 ECOSOC Accredited NGOs, there should be no disconnect between each Community in each UN Member State and New York, if these NGOs were alive to their responsibilities and are operating at minimum certain levels of Capacity as described above. There is a need for a four tier ECOSOC Accreditation: Level 4 Open Virtual Participation in Global Consultations. Level 3: Closed Virtual Participation in Video Conferences, Conference Calls and related Global Consultations. Level 2: Physical Participation in Conferences and Seminars and Level 1 Physical Participation in Intergovernmental negotiations. 20% of bottom performers from Level 1 to Level 3 will be demoted yearly to next level. 20% of Level 2 and 3 Top performers will be promoted yearly to next level. The number equivalent to 20% of Level 3 will be promoted from Level 4. Each Region, Sub-region and Country will have specific number of CSOs’/NGOs allocated to it based on known formula that is subject to review based on known rules.
10.If National Leaders and World Leaders are serious about achieving increasing convergence between Global Goals – AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community Development Plans and Country Development Plans in 306/193 UN Member States, it is clear that current arrangement where all reviews in SG Report on Follow Up and Review are voluntary is unhelpful. There is a need for carefully calibrated balance between Voluntary and Legal aspects of each of the 16 SG Reports identified in (5).
11.  Pilot Program and Scale Up Program. Innovative and Creative Sustainable Solutions to root problems in specific Community to Global location, in each of the 16 Cross Cutting Themes need to be tried and tested in Pilot Programs before expanding to Scale Up Programs. The challenges for design and delivery of successful Pilot Programs are different from challenges for design and delivery of successful Scale Up Programs.
According to Johannes Linn; a systematic focus on scaling up successful development interventions could bridge gap between top down objectives and bottom up approaches necessary to achieve desired outcomes from AAAA, SDG, COP21 and Agenda 21. He has identified Eight Lessons for successful Scale Up that underline points made in MSP for 2030 Agenda set out in (4):
a. Look into the “black box” of institutions. It is not enough to decide that an institution should focus on and support scaling up of successful development interventions. You actually need to look at how institutions function in terms of their mission statement and corporate strategy, their policies and processes, their operational instruments, their budgets, management and staff incentives, and their monitoring and evaluation practices.
b. Scaling needs to be pursued institution-wide. Tasking one unit in an organization with innovation and scaling up, or creating special outside entities (like the Global Innovation Fund set up jointly by a number of donor agencies) is a good first step. But ultimately, a comprehensive approach must be mainstreamed so that all operational activities are geared toward scaling up.
c. Scaling up must be championed from the top. The governing boards and leadership of the institutions need to commit to scaling up and persistently stay on message, since, like any fundamental institutional change, effectively scaling up takes time, perhaps a decade or more.
d. The scaling up process must be grown within the institution. External analysis and advice from consultants can play an important role in institutional reviews. But for lasting institutional change, the leadership must come from within and involve broad participation from managers and staff in developing operational policies and processes that are tailored to an institution’s specific culture, tasks, and organizational structure.
e. A well-articulated operational approach for scaling up needs to be put in place.
f.  Operational staffs need to receive practical guidance and training. It is not enough to tell staff that they have to focus on scaling up and then give them a general framework. They also need practical guidance and training, ideally tailored to the specific business lines they are engaged in. IFAD, for example developed overall operational guidelines for scaling up, as well as guidance notes for specific area of engagement, including livestock development, agricultural value chains, land tenure security, etc.  This guidance and training ideally should also be extended to consultants working with the agency on project preparation, implementation, and evaluation, as well as to the agency’s local counterpart organizations.
g.  New approaches to monitoring and evaluation (M&E) have to be crafted. Typically the M&E for development projects is backward looking and focused on accountability, narrow issues of implementation, and short-term results. Scaling up requires continuous learning, structured experimentation, and innovation based on evidence, including whether the enabling conditions for scaling up are being established. And it is important to monitor and evaluate the institutional mainstreaming process of scaling up to ensure that it is effectively pursued.
h.  Scaling up helps aid organizations mobilize financial resources. Scaling up leverages limited institutional resources in two ways: First, an organization can multiply the impact of its own financial capacity by linking up with public and private agencies and building multi-stakeholder coalitions in support of scaling up. Second, when an organization demonstrates that it is pursuing not only one-off results but also scaled up impact, funders or shareholders of the organization tend to be more motivated to support the organization.

By adopting these lessons, development organizations, international institutions and governments – developed and developing, can actually begin to scale up to the level necessary to bridge the missing middle. The key will be to assure that a focus on scaling up is not the exception but instead becomes ingrained in the institutional/ government entity DNA. Simply put, in designing and implementing development Policies, Programs and Projects, 3PI and 3PI Training as One, the question needs to be answered, “What’s next, if this intervention works?”
13. Paradigm Shifts. Achieving increasing convergence between AAAA, SDG, COP21, Agenda 21 aligned and harmonized with Community and Country Development Plans in 306/193 UN Member States, Vision Intention and Reality by target date greatly depends on relevant National and Global Leaders on UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF; UN Member States – Executive, Parliament and Judiciary and MGoS sides making Multiple Paradigm Shifts including from Silos to Synergy; Business as Usual to Business Unusual; Parroting Change to Practicing Change; Academic Research to Development Research; Talking and Thinking to Action and Accomplishment etc and in ways that effectively deploy Whole of Bank / Institution / Government / Community / Country / World Thinking towards the sustainable solutions to Whole of Bank / Institution / Government / Community / Country / World Problems.

Acid Test of Credibility

The acid test of credibility of SDG, AAAA, Agenda 21, COP21 etc is how each delivers:-
1.     Better Domestic and International Trade in each of 193 Member States.
2.     Better Financing – Equity, Loan and Grant for all particularly the Poor
3.     Better War on Corruption and Terrorism and
4.     Better Environmental Sustainability.

Also the Acid Test of Credibility of UN Security Council Open Debates,  ECOSOC President Retreats, G20 Meetings and CHOGOM Meetings etc is How each event help Deliver Sustainable Solutions for effectively and efficiently tackling real and complex:-
1.      Risk Management Root problems
2.      Geodesign Management Root Problems
3.      Other Disciplines Management Root Problems
4.      End Hunger and Poverty by 2025 and 2030 Root problems
5.      Aid Effectiveness and Post 2015 Development Agenda Root problems
6.      Governance and Globalization Working for the World Poor Root problems
7.      Creating Learning Society in over 200 Countries Root problems
8.      Creating Development Change Champions in over 200 Countries Root problems
9.      Changing Attitude and Behavior at Scale in over 200 Countries Root Problems
10. Building National and Global Collective Action Driving TRANSFORMATION of Society Root problems
on the ground from Neighborhood to Global levels facing Individuals, Institutions and
Governments (all arms and all tiers in all countries – developed and developing) in our
World today.
                                           
New Thinking, New Ideas, New Ways of Doing Things etc

The only way World Leaders can deliver on their promise during the adoption of SDG is to improve Cohesion, Coordination, Collaboration, Cooperation, Solidarity and Accountability in the design and delivery of mutual support mechanism that help each of the 306/193 Member States to pass this acid test of credibility of the SDGs.

To achieve this, the 306/193 Member States jointly and severally must demonstrate and be seen to demonstrate:-
1.     Willingness to accept new ideas, new thinking, new ways of doing things
2.     Willingness to establish new coordination, new collaboration, new cooperation, new solidarity, new accountability and new partnership
3.     Readiness to accept past flaws, past failures, past drawbacks, past shortcomings and past hindrances
4.     Readiness to build bridge between lessons learning and lessons forgetting, create learning organization and create learning society
5.     Readiness to create Demand for Planning – Research, Planning, Data as basis for creating Supply for Planning – Research, Planning, Data
6.     Readiness to create Demand for Implementation as basis for creating supply for Implementation
7.     Readiness to create Demand for Evaluation – Monitoring, Evaluation, Assessment as basis for creating Supply for Evaluation – Monitoring, Evaluation, Assessment
8.     Readiness to create Demand for Accountability – Transparency, Accountability, Citizen / Stakeholder Participation as basis for creating Supply for Accountability – Transparency, Accountability, Citizen / Stakeholder Participation
9.     Readiness to create Demand for Learning – Learning and Result as basis for creating Supply for Learning – Learning and Result
10. Readiness to accept One Nationwide / Region wide / Worldwide 3PCM – Policy, Program, Project Cycle Management Approach and Methodology to Sustainable Benefits focused National and International Development Cooperation Policy, Program, Project Intervention, 3PI and 3PI Training as One in each Action Agenda Item in each of the 17 SDGs applicable to specific context – Village to Global in each of the 306/193 Member States

Working Together To Benefit Together


To help ensure World Leaders deliver on promise to achieve SDGs’ by 2030, we suggest relevant UN and Non UN authorities undertake critical review of this and earlier Papers, Policy Briefings and Articles. Should its assessment confirm that indeed the Papers, Policy Briefings and articles have many good ideas and pertinent suggestions, which adopted by UNGA, HLPF, ECOSOC, UN Security Council, 306/193 Member States Governments and Partners – Village to Global can help achieve increasing convergence between AAAA and SDG Vision and Words with Action Intention and Reality in each Community in each Local Government in each of 306/193 Member States, we suggest these UN and Non UN authorities consider taking the following specific action steps:-
1.     Underline need for Integrated Sustainable Solutions – Political Solutions, Cultural Solutions, Economic Solutions, Financial Solutions, Social Solutions, Environment Solutions, Peace Solutions, Security Solutions, Religious Solutions and Moral Solutions; to Design and Delivery of each Action Agenda Item in AAAA, SDG, COP21, HLPF Outcome etc applicable to specific Community to Global location context.
2.     Urge all World Leaders, 306/193 member States and other AAAA, SDG, COP21 etc Stakeholders to recognize that Political Solutions is Master Key to unlocking remaining 9 Integrated Sustainable Solutions.

If SDG, AAAA, COP21, HLPF Outcome Document etc Vision Ambitions are to be achieved and on schedule date, Community to Global Stakeholders need to Work Together to Benefit Together.

MOVING FORWARD

Do World Leaders, UNDESA, EOSG, UNGA, ECOSOC, HLPF and Partners recognize that correct answer to all AAAA, SDG, COP21, ECOSOC Outcome, HLPF Outcome, Agenda 21, FAO Conference on Hunger and Poverty Action Plan etc How questions lie in the DOING? That without immediately:-
1.     Appointing Reform Adviser and Global Coordinating External Consultant on AAAA, SDG, COP21, HLPF Outcome etc Policy Coherence, Coordination, Collaboration and Cooperation for Sustainable Development, P4CSD to UNGA, ECOSOC, UN Security Council and HLPF and Partners
2.     Appointing  a newly created Unit of UN Chief Executives Board, CEB – United Nations Reform Group, as Reform Adviser and Global Coordinating Internal Consultant on AAAA, SDG, COP21, HLPF Outcome etc Policy Coherence, Coordination, Collaboration and Cooperation for Sustainable Development, P4CSD to UNGA, ECOSOC, UN Security Council and HLPF and Partners
3.     Selecting One Worldwide Approach without further delay
4.     Establishing Mater Multi Stakeholder Platform, MSP and MSPs for each Action Agenda item Village to Global, VtG
5.     Establishing Multidisciplinary Professionals Community of Practice on Poverty Elimination and Environmental Sustainability as VtG Platform for all relevant existing and new Disciplines
6.     Addressing issues of Trust, Silos, Honesty, Thinking, Solidarity, Attitude, Behaviour, Communication etc VtG
7.     Connecting each Community in each Local Government in each of the 306/193 Member States to UN Headquarters New York
8.     Establishing VtG Mechanism for Correct Diagnosis, Prescription, Surgery and Recovery Management
9.     Establishing VtG Policy, Program, Project Interventions, 3PIs and 3PIs Training as One
10. Establishing VtG Mechanism for Ownership, Harmony, Alignment, Accountability, Transparency, Transformation, Leadership, Learning, Results and Participation (Citizens and Stakeholders), OH2A2T2LRP
11. Establishing VtG Mechanism for Policy Coherence, Coordination, Collaboration and Cooperation for Sustainable Development, P4CSD
12. Establishing VtG Mechanism for Master Collaborative Research Support Program, CRSP for each Action Agenda Item

It will be uphill task achieving increasing convergence between UNSDS 2015, ECOSOC Outcome, UN Retreat on MSP Outcome, AAAA, SDG, COP21, HLPF Outcome, Agenda 21, FAO Conference on Hunger and Poverty etc Vision Intention and Reality. If these Visions are not achieved by 2030 Target date, the ultimate consequences for our Fragile Planet could be catastrophic.

Brexit underline need for Global, Regional and National Institutions to reflect on its current approach and consider new thinking, new ways of doing things that could optimize Global, Regional and National Institutions’ potential to help Countries genuinely interested in achieving 2030 Agenda Vision ambitions that are looking up to UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF for help – help these UN System Entities cannot give, because they themselves need help.

There is urgent need for Development Training; Development Research; Community Service – Advocacy (the type required to achieve 2030 Agenda ambitions), Advisory, Management and Financial to be provided for Stakeholders in the 8 Blocks identified in this Paper, if 2030 Agenda Vision Ambitions are to be achieved by target date. In securing mandates and providing these Services, there are things NEHAP/ISPE/EAG can do that Think AAAA cannot do and vice versa. A positive working relationship why Resources and Competences of the Partners are pooled together could deliver Synergy that is mutually beneficial as both Parties work in the Service of Humanity.

It is against this background that we suggest a framework could be discussed and negotiated with UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF that could serve as backbone of the proposed positive working relationship.

About ISPE / EAG

Lanre and colleagues have for over twenty years made great sacrifices, demonstrated uncommon zeal and exceptional patriotism in continuing constructive engagement of relevant sub-national, national and international stakeholders, to jointly focus on comprehensive systemic solutions to our real and complex national political, economic, social, security, cultural and religious problems on the ground.

International Society for Poverty Elimination, ISPE, Volunteer Organization, is a Member of Economic Alliance Group, EAG. Some other EAG Members include:-
1.     AR & Associates Limited, Strategy and Development Cooperation Consulting Firm – Research, Planning, Statistics, Implementation, Monitoring, Evaluation, Assessment, Learning, Results, Advocacy.
2.     EAG - CLEAR, Centre for Learning in Evaluation and Results, Evaluation Organization

6.     EAG – PSA / PSE – Public Service Academy / Public Service Exchange, Public Administration Organization

EAG is neutral in promoting and protecting Sub-national, National and International Development Cooperation. EAG work towards supporting Developed Countries Governments; Developing Countries Governments; International Institutions / International Foundations / Donors; Organized Communities – Neighbourhood to Global; Media – National and International to JOINTLY Build National and Global Collective ACTION for achieving Increasing Convergence between National and Global Development Cooperation Goals and Targets Intention and Reality and on schedule dates.
The core business of the Group is the provision of Services for Strategic Management of Complex National or International or both National and International Development Change Processes under Blended Volunteer Services and Commercial Services Arrangement.

AR has been in business since 1993 but registered in Nigeria in 1995. ISPE has been in business operating as Economic Alliance International (EAI) since 2002 but registered in Nigeria in 2007. EAG – CLEAR; EAG – CDPM; EAG – FTS; EAG – ETS; EAG – PSA are for now domiciled in AR.

EAG has in the past 25 years spent over US$3 Million (N1.2 Billion) to Develop the 3PCM Approach as well as its National and Global Development Cooperation Practical Solutions under Blended Volunteer Services and Commercial Services Arrangement within which we provided the Nigeria Federal Government alone Consultancy Services worth over UK Pounds 10 Million (N6 Billion) Free of Charge. This is Evidence that we do not have purely Commercial Interest but are Motivated by Service to Humanity as the Best Work of Life, hence two of our Slogans – Let Us Work Together to Benefit Together and …Building a Brighter Future as we Configure our World.

Conclusion

Our World has enough Resources to meet the needs of its over 7 Billion People. Our World does not have enough Resources to meet the GREED of over 7 Billion People. However, these Resources remain unlocked potential if there is no new thinking, new ideas and new ways of doing things and if Policy Makers and Decision Makers on UN Member States, UN System and MGoS sides do not individually and collectively accept Community to Global Solidarity is essentially for finding sustainable solutions to real and complex World problems on the ground from Village to Global levels.

We strongly urge concerned authorities in UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF to individually and jointly recognize that without facing new direction and adopting new priorities; without adopting Business Unusual doing new things in new ways, the expected new Results will remain Mirage.

We further urge concerned authorities in UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF to recognize that given magnitude and complexity of Finance Dimension of all 17 Goals of the SDGs that AAAA essentially is; the current UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF multiple approaches to implementation and evaluation of 2030 Agenda is in reality undermining Development Impact, especially with reducing budget in contemporary circumstances where much more needs to be achieved from National and International Development Interventions and so there is urgent need to Rethink and Rebuild Global, Regional and National Institutions to be Fit for the 21st Century as well as provide its Interventions with sufficient budget to ensure meaningful and sustainable Development Impact from Community to Global levels in 406/193 UN Member States.

There is urgent need to invite interested Academics, Scientists, Professionals and Practitioners Worldwide with minimum certain levels of Hard Competences: Learning and Skills and Spft Competences: Character, Courage, Mindset and Discipline to join in improving the 306/193 National; Regional and Global White Book on SDS as well as develop complimentary White Papers on similar Dimensions of the SDG. 

In doing these, the UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF needs to recognize that there are potential Participants, especially from Developing Countries who have created Innovative and Creative Sustainable Solutions in One or more or all Ten Dimensions of the SDGs identified in this Paper that are unable to fund their participation at the Workshop, Seminars and Conferences organized to grapple effectively with the challenges and crises of defense implications of EUGS and SDG as well as related implications of other dimensions of EUGS and SDG and that there are Academics, Scientists, Professionals and Practitioners on both Developed and Developing Countries sides who have created Innovative and Creative Sustainable Solutions in One or more or all Ten Dimensions of the SDGs identified in this Paper that they are willing to share on Consultancy basis (remuneration may be commercial basis only or blended commercial and not for profit basis). 

The selection of Workshop, Seminar, Conference participants in the ne dispensation will be incomplete and therefore less potent should these two categories of Participants through acts of omission or commission be left out of future Workshops, Seminars and Conferences.

We urge UN Member States Governments and UN System – UNO, WBG and IMF Leaders to join us in urging Leaders in remaining Stakeholder Blocks – MGoS, Micro to TNC Businesses, Banks, Financial Institutions and Impact Investors, Academics and Researchers, Communication Strategy Experts, Internal and External Consultants etc to consider stopping ongoing search for Sustainable Solutions that exist.
