Fully Funding and Accelerating Implemention of All the
 UN SDGs and Their Targets as Target Action Plans (TAPs)
"By far the most important initiative in the world ever"

The entire world, including the United States, has agreed to implement the UN SDGs in their countries. Developed countries, including the U.S., agreed to help all the developing countries with their implementation. Essentially this means the 194 countries of the world have committed to resolve all the significant problems of the world and to have:

As noted on www.PeopleNow.org, PeopleNow.org has developed the "Plan to Rapidly Implement UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Target Action Plans (TAPs) which covers about 35% of the SDG 169 Targets in particular the more urgent ones. This plan should be accomplished as rapidly as possible.

PeopleNow.org recommends that the remaining SDG Targets and all significant new work, programs and projects be either integrated into existing SDG TAPs or made into new TAPs as appropriate with all using the standard TAP format

.Anyone working on a significant cause or with ideas for a needed cause not already included in the Common Agenda, please propose adding it to an existing TAP or developing an entirely new TAP so that it can be implemented worldwide. The applicable Target for a new TAP can be found in TAP #65 at UN SDGs & Targets which lists all UN SDGs and Targets in one place. Examples of Targets and TAPs are in the Common Agenda.

The organizations and individuals managing each of the TAPs remain the same. PeopleNow.org will mainly coordinate the work and ensure the TAPs are refined and implemented.

This will resolve one of our biggest problems - not collaborating and working nearly well enough together from a common strategy and set of plans.

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 implies that implementation of the SDG TAPS must be part of a larger plan and all this work be coordinated and sequenced carefully utilizing the Holistic Strategy to Implement UN SDG TAPs.

To permanently correct problems requires that the underlying causes of the problem be corrected.

Some significant problems and their underlying causes are listed below. We will ultimately list all significant problems and their underlying causes and match them to solutions for use all over the world

This plan is about 75% complete. Additional TAPs need to be prepared and Planning to Accelerate Implementation of the UN SDG TAPs must be completed.

Items needed to implement the actions are included in the menu in the left column.

Other key features of the USP include:

Some of the significant underlying causes of the above problems

Also please see Problems and Challenges and Urgent Need for comprehensive reform.

Please review the parts of the UN SDGs, Targets and TAPs and USP in which you are interested, Subscribe to work on specific Actions or SDG Target Action Plans from the Common Agenda with others, and/or have your organization and you become equal partners in the Massive Global Matrix Network.

This plan is a work in progress and by no means complete. It provides a framework into which additional ideas and elements can easily be inserted. Questions, comments, suggestions, and help —to refine-and-implement are welcome and can be forwarded to PeopleNow.org via email RefineThePlan@PeopleNow.org or fax (703) 521-0849.

Please note that UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and SDG Targets and Target Action Plans {TAPs) are uniquely numbered making it easy to recommend changes. The digits before the first decimal point is the document number and the digits after the first decimal point identify what the element is for, e.g. decimal .4 are all actions to be accomplished.

We are recommending that:


I wish to thank all who have contributed to this work and apologize for not finding the time to acknowledge all contributors by name.

If we work together, continually refine and implement all this we will have a permanently peaceful, prosperous, just, sustainable world. And be a model for all countries
