All Countries of the World Have Agreed to Implement
The UN Sustainable Development Goals and their Targets
By far the most important initiative and best opportunity for reform in the world ever

All the countries of the world, including the United States, have agreed to implement the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their 169 Targets in their countries. Developed countries, including the U.S., have agreed to help all the developing countries with their implementation. This means all 194 countries of the world have committed to resolve all the significant issues/problems of the world and have:

  • World peace, no nuclear weapons, no militarism and very few if any terrorist threats

  • No poverty or hunger

  • Full employment and guaranteed living incomes

  • Mitigation of global warming/climate change and its effects

  • Healthcare for all with no co-payment or supplementals

  • Good governance and strong institutions

The spirit and intent of the SDGs and their Targets are clear and they are fantastic; however, they were written/modified by many organizations in different countries, are not well organized, need refining, are currently severely underfunded and scheduled to take way too much time.


Our government has done very little to implement the SDGs althought they have been in effect since January 1, 2016 and apparently they are not planning to do very much.


Following is paraphrased from an article by Michael Payne about America’s Lack of a Vision or Strategy. “Our backward, shallow-thinking government and leaders have absolutely no plan, priorities, vision, direction or strategy for the future. Those in control of the U.S., specifically in the presidency and Congress, are in a state of chaos, turmoil and political paralysis of their own making. They go from day to day just reacting to conditions that as they emerge."


Millions of people and thousands of organizations in the public and private sectors all over the world are already working on reform without knowing about the SDGs. Most are not collaborating and working together from a common strategy and plans nearly well enough. A great deal of work is being duplicated and some key items are being missed. Working together on the SDGs will resolve this.


In her article Reading I.F. Stone on Earth Day, Naomi Klein states: "What I.F. Stone saw clearly, and what bears repeating four and half decades later, is that the ecological movement will get nowhere if it fails to connect the dots with other overlapping crises facing our society, from racism to militarism to inequality".

In his book, The Sane Society, Eric Fromm states: "Change must be a simultaneous change in economic, education, political and cultural spheres. Changes restricted to one sphere are destructive of every change."

 This means that:

  • Every significant change we make must be part of a comprehensive strategy and plan that addresses all significant problem we face

  • All needed changes must be coordinated and sequenced carefully

  • If we continue to work separately and make one or two changes at a time, we will never be successful and wars, poverty, hunger, inequalities, etc. will get worse

Description of the
The Universal Strategic Plan to Prepare Target Action (TAPs) for
 All UN
SDG Targets and Make Preparations for Their Implementation

PeopleNow.org working with many others for years developed the Universal Strategic Plan (USP) and National Policies/Action Plans (NP/APs). These NPs/APs are being converted into 43 SDG Target Action Plans (TAPs) for the more urgent Targets and are in various stages of development. Each TAP has many multiple individual Target Actions (TAs).

Target Action Plans (TAPs) and/or Target Actions (TAs) will be developed for the remaining 125 or so SDG Targets and all significant new events, e.g. the Paris Accords, will be included.

The USP is being refined to help implement the SDG TAPS and provides for full-funding, collaboration and will ensures that ultimately every problem will be resolved in every country in the world

The Plan to Rapidly Implement the UN SDG TAPs and End the Use of

Nuclear Weapons, Wars, Poverty, Terrorism, Excessive Warming, Inequalities, etc. Worldwide

The assistance of organizations and individuals is needed to help refine and implement the SDG TAPs. Individuals do not need to read or understand the entire plan. Please Subscribe, Find TAPs and TAs in which You Are Interested, and/or Sign-Up for the Global Matrix Newwork. If anyone or any organization is working or wants to work on a significant problem for which there is no UN SDG TAP or TA to fix it, PeopleNow.org will help develop one.

Please note that the very urgent Target Actions will be implemented without waiting until the preparations are completed for all the less urgent TAPs.
