23 Sep 2015 - 12:30

Prof

 Haroon Bhorat has just written a blog for Africa in Focus, discussing the SDGs' Goal 10 and inequality-specific targets, in light of the particular challenges Sub-Saharan Africa faces when it comes to tackling growth and inequality together.

Excerpt:

"In its preamble, the pending Global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)—the successor to the Millennium Development Goals—states that it represents humanity’s crystallizing of its “plan of action for people, planet and prosperity.”...[In] sub-Saharan Africa, the region where on average the SDGs are arguably most pertinent— [the] inequality and economic development nexus is particularly important to understand."
