The U.N. Goal That Doesn't Get A Lot Of Respect (NPR)
May 31, 2018
Of the U.N.'s 17 goals to make the world a better place by 2030, one goal gets much less respect than the others.
Charles Kenny, a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development, says it's important to remember that although the goals seem separate, they in fact build off each other and that more could be done to help everyone involved with implementing them — including developing country leaders and officials in donor organizations — understand the links between them.
