SDG 4: Quality Education – Handlungsbedarf in Österreich? Gastbeitrag

Seit dem Jahr 2016 gelten globale Entwicklungsziele erstmals für alle Länder. Bis dahin  wurden solche Ziele oftmals in paternalistischer Art und Weise allein gegenüber den sogenannten Entwicklungsländern formuliert. Die Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) zielen nun auch auf die höchstentwickelten Länder ab. Ist das überhaupt notwendig? Sind wohlhabende Industriestaaten nicht ohnehin weit genug entwickelt?

SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy

Overall, one could say that energy usage and consumption are linked to their prices. Energy prices are to a wide extent interconnected and as a result usually when one energy production source experiences price increases other energy sources also increase. This fact explains some kind of positive correlation between different energy sources, which can be observed while analyzing the historical data and complex interactions of the coal gas and oil markets. Energy prices are very volatile and do not necessarily only depend on demand and supply but also on political and economic decisions. As such, energy prices are complex and dependent on a wide variety of politico-economic determinants.

SDG 8: Decent Work and Economic Growth

Die Wirtschaft muss wachsen! – Allzu oft wird diese Aussage gebraucht und zur Lösung vieler unserer Probleme erklärt. Doch was genau bedeutet diese, oft auch von Politikern verwendete, Floskel? Wohin soll das Wachstum führen und was genau soll wachsen?

SDG 13: Climate Action

„One Point Five to stay alive!“ protestieren die Aktivisten auf der Weltklimakonferenz. Und wie heißt der neue Film von Leonardo di Caprio? „Before the Flood“ – vor der Flut. Die Veränderungen im globalen Klima stellen also ein Problem dar, das unser Überleben gewissermaßen infrage stellt.

SDG 2: Zero Hunger

Seen as the probably greatest solvable problem on the planet hunger affects the lives of over 840 million people who go to bed hungry every night. That fact leaves us with a number of 795 million people undernourished. The vast majority of those people live in developing countries. Neither unusual nor very surprising large-scale problems like hunger affect mostly the weakest, but most important part of our society and our future – the children. Poor nutrition causes nearly half of the deaths of children younger than five years old, which sums up to 3.1 million deaths each year. One in four of the world’s children suffers stunted growth, mostly due to hunger and malnutrition. Just in Africa 23 million primary school-age children have to attend classes hungry. Those overwhelming and dramatically high numbers of human suffering display the inequity and ineffectiveness in the global production and distribution of human kind’s basic need – food.

SDG 3: Health Care and Well-Being

Nowadays a high percentage of the population still does not have access to basic healthcare services. A lot of people are living in poverty and highly polluted environment, or working in health threatening conditions, which is particularly common in the developing countries. Because of the importance of healthcare-related issues and well-being, the third SDG of the UN is designed to achieve universal health coverage, financial risk protection, and access to essential health-care services and medicines, as well as to reduce the number of deaths and illnesses from health-damaging chemicals, air and water pollution.e_sdg-goals_icons-individual-rgb-03
