Co-operatives and the Sustainable Development Goals
International Labour Organisation (ILO) and International Co-operative Alliance (ICA)
As we approached the Millennium Development Goals’ (MDG) target date of 2015, global, regional, national and online thematic consultations took place to frame the post-2015 global development agenda. Attempts were made to reach consensus on goals, targets, and indicators for sustainable development before the end of 2015. The big questions revolved around the ways the international community will respond to the pressing issues of economic development, environmental protection, and social equity in a sustainable manner.
