The protect the planet and confirm that all

The
UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) build on the success of the Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs); they also learn from them. The 17 SDGs are a universal
call to protect the planet and confirm that all people enjoy peace and success
and most importantly to end poverty. Due to part of the struggle in collecting
MDG-related data, Ban Ki-moon, the secretary-general, formed an Independent
Expert Advisory Group (IEAG) on a Data Revolution for Sustainable Development
in 2014 to counsel on how to understand the “revolution in data”. UNDP is
seeking on collecting data and information to promote new principles,
strengthen those already exist, and to fill key data gaps that make a
difference to people’s lives,  specifically
the poor and excluded countries that are full of poverty, but are not
considered.

 

Data
is the key to successfully attain the SDGs, harmonizing data definitions,
methodologies, and sources is clearly needed for publishing data in open,
common, and electronic formats. Open data lies at the core of data revolution and
is seen to be a key driver for accomplishing the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable
Development. Most often, open data is the most underutilized advantage deceitful
with the government. New technologies offer new chances to improve data,
developing new infrastructures for data sharing and development, and supporting
innovations that reduce the cost of producing public data and improve the
quality.

Location
and geography are important to most of the rudiments of Sustainable Development
Goals. It is, therefore, not astonishment that geospatial data is as important
to sustainable development goals as the demographic and statistical data. To
truly harness ‘data’ to meet the Agenda 2030, there is a need for assimilating
geospatial data with other available datasets so as to create visualizations
through maps or 3D models which shall only help in evaluating influences,
monitor progress and enhanced accountability. For governments to express
strategies, they need to identify where the citizens are and where the origin
of the problem lies.

Introducing Happiness as a
Measure of Development

 

The
Human Development Index has been collected in worldwide surveys and is used in
various ways that are relevant to sustainable wellbeing. Happiness is
not only the best lifestyle for a human being, it is healthier and important
for not only a person but as well as for the surrounding of this world. A country
should realize that the citizen’s happiness has a great impact on its
development and economic position. Happiness is an important key to achieve
sustainable development in all countries around the world in the coming years.

 

The
World Happiness Report is a measure of happiness published by the United
Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, measuring the happiness of
more than 150 countries. In the 2016 report, Iran ranked 105th among 156
countries – an improvement over the past year’s 110th place. Unfortunately,
the country has ranked 108th in the World Happiness Report 2017 among 155 countries
(World Happiness Report, 2017), dropping three ranks after suffering from
revolutions and mess among the country in the past year. The country also
achieves a Happy Planet Index (HPI) score of 24.0 and ranks 84th of
all the 140 countries analyzed (Happy Planet Index, 2017), based on its life
expectancy, well-being, ecological footprint, and inequality.

 

Despite
the struggles Iran is going through because of the chaos actions of some
citizens, the country is trying its best to develop, putting its citizen’s
happiness as a target to achieve in the coming years, but not by breaking the
country’s laws and rules, and disturbing the countries peace by irresponsible
actions, instead, by
a real cooperation between the citizens and the government of Iran to
help their country achieve a successful development that will benefit them and
the country.

 

Governments
are also encouraged to recognize that GDP is not the only indicator of
well-being assimilate economic and social policies, better develop specific
policies for environmental protection develop well-being indicators to guide
their policy design and monitoring in line with sustainable development
objectives, consider using a broader concept of well-being, going beyond GDP
and economic growth, adopting a new economic paradigm that summarizes the
social, economic and environmental features of sustainable development, and use
carefully-constructed regular, large-scale data on happiness and wellbeing as a
more suitable indicator for improving macroeconomic policymaking and notifying
service delivery.

 

 

The
Islamic Republic of Iran is conscious of the
country’s position regarding its happiness, and would like to consider a
resolution that puts happiness as measurement of developing countries to attain
sustainable development, with the help of all other countries and will align
with the houses opinion to make all countries happy and well-developed in the
future.
