You would searchingly dive into these pages to explore how his actions are linked to the SDGs.
Unstoppable Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, in 2019, was awarded Champion of the Earth by the United Nations. Then he received 7 highest awards from as many countries. By Russia to Saudi Arabia to Afghanistan he has become award winning politician. Recently Bill Gates and Melinda foundation awarded him ‘ Global Goal keeper’ that marks him much closer to the pursuit to achieve SDGs.
Having led the singularly successful capacity building program in the United Nations (see: www.rajendrashende.com) and (www.rajendrashende.blog) where made my own modest contribution to save the world from catastrophe of Stratospheric Ozone Depletion , my seminal conviction is simple: yes, failures have lessons that make us wiser but more than that success has lessons too, and they make us do better next time. A personified image of this conviction is Narendra Modi.
As Coordinating Lead Author of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC that won Nobel Peace Prize, I am winner of Nobel Peace Prize citation prepared by IPCC. From 2015 I am promoting the message of IPCC which is linked to the peace prize by contributing to SDGs.
I strongly believe that world leaders should be judged based on simple criteria. It is about weather his/her decisions and actions allow to mainstream SDGs. We have just about a decade left to attain SDGs . NaMo has unique ability to focus on development that links many of his actions, knowingly or unknowingly, to SDGs.
It indeed IS Nobel. Criteria for Nobel Peace Prize includes the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses. SDG 16 is about peace making. I am sure Nobel Committee would include a criteria of the ‘best work in promotion of SDGs including peace’.
Feedback is welcome on this venture that sees the head of the state from SDGs prism. END
