Successful implementation of the SDGs require careful adaptation to country-specific circumstances through localization of goals and targets, prioritization, and sequencing of policies and investments aimed at achieving the goals. Furthermore, governments have to allocate efficiently limited financial and natural resources with available human resources to achieve the desired targets. This is a daunting task because the SDGs are a complex system of interconnected feedback loops, lengthy time lags between causes and effects, and nonlinear relationships that are not easily discernible, which can lead to incoherent policy solutions.
iSDG helps policy makers and other stakeholders to make better and more cost efficient decisions. It gives stakeholders better insight into the complex SDG system, and visualize the web of interrelated benefits of policies in one sector on the other sectors. Decision-makers are able to identify the potential costs and benefits of policies under consideration, identify synergies, and high-impact leverage points, and make investment decisions having understood the likely long-term impact.
The Millennium Institute's mission is to support countries to develop effective strategies that will lead to measurable advances in the welfare of society in the context of the SDGs. Our goal over the next five years is to support national governments representing at least 90% of the global population to effectively and efficiently domesticate and implement the SDGs. We believe this is a fundamental prerequisite to enable a global shift towards a sustainable development path in time to meet the SDGs.
