Work remains to be done on this document. Please forward proposed corrections, refinements and additions to RefineThePlan@PeopleNow.org or fax to 703-521-0849


51.1   Introduction

This Common Agenda currently consists of:


     About 43 United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) National Policies/Target Action Plans (TAPs), in various stages of development .


     About 20 Universal Strategic Plan (USP) Documents being used to help refine and implement the TAPs.

Attachment A at the end of this document provides a Glossary of Terms and Description of the Standard Numbering System for TAPs and USP Documents

Each of the UN SDG Targets, Target Action Plans (TAPs) and USP documents use a standard numbering system so that every section of every document will ultimately have a unique number. This will make finding items, suggesting new items and making corrections easier

These plans are called UN SDG Target Action Plans because we have thousands of books and articles with many great ideas but many of these ideas are not being acted on or implemented.

Organizations are requested to integrate, or at least list, projects they are working on with existing similar SDG Target Action Plans (TAPs) so that efforts are not duplicated.

Each UN SDG Target Action Plan requires that various tasks and sub-tasks, which will ultimately be included.

The current plan is for Organizations to take the lead to refine and implement each SDG Target Action Plan and each major Element of the USP. This does not imply that only individuals in the organization taking the lead are the only ones that can work on a specific Action.

This Common Agenda, Global-Matrix-Network, Global Information and Education System, Project-Management-System, etc...will be linked in the Cloud to coordinate the efforts of individuals and organizations and prioritize, sequence and implement the hundreds of Actions and thousands of tasks and sub-tasks required to implement the Actions. Until then, Actions, tasks and sub-tasks must be manually-sequenced, scheduled and implemented.

Attachment A. Glossary of Terms and Description of the Standard Numbering System for UN SDG TAPs, SDG TAs and USP Documents

Each of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Targets, Target Action Plans (TAPs), Target Actions and USP documents have a standard numbering systems and every section of every document will ultimately have a unique number. This will make refining and correcting documents faster and easier.


The 17 SDGs are numbered 1 through 17.       `

SDG Targets are numbered with the first one or two digits of each Target before the first decimal point being the number of the SDG (1-17), that it goes with. Each Target has a number or letter after the first single decimal point e.g. 2.3 and 14.a.

The UN SDGs Targets that cover more than one topic and/or require modifications have been broken down by adding a second decimal place for each different Targets, e.g. Target 2.3.1 and 9.a.2.

National Policies/Target Action Plan (TAPs) - Target and Associated Target Action Plans. The title of a TAP is the a brief description the Target(s) the TAP implements. The number before the first decimal points is the number of TAP.

Target Action (TA) is a single action from a TAP

 The number after the first decimal point shows what that section is, e.g.

   18.1 Introduction to TAP18

   18.2 The Purpose of TAP18

   18.3 The Objectives of TAP18

   18.4 Target Actions (TAs) to be Implemented by TAP18 Individual Ts

   18.5 Background information

   18.6 and higher numbers: Miscellaneous Items

The numbers after the second and higher decimal points are for specific or a header for two or more items e.g. 18.4.1 could be for a specific TA or a header for TA and TA


The following is a sample of an SDG, Targets, Target Action Plan (TAP) and Target Action (TA):

SDG Goal 16. Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
