GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS (SDGs)2IntroductionThe Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which is officially termed as Transformingout world: the 2030 agenda for sustainable development consists 17 different global goalstargeting 169 factors the world is suffering from. The United Nations commanded these goalsthrough a process that involves 193 member states and the global civil society. These goals areplaced in the para 54 of the United Nation Regulations A/RES/70/1 of 25 September 2015 [1].This SDG is built on the values of resolution A/RES/66/288 that is termed as “The future wewant” and is a nonbinding article, a result of Rio+20 meeting happened in Rio de Janeiro, Brazilin 2012. After the historic success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the UnitedNation wanted to propose a plan worldwide that has the ability to change the bottom line needsof the human wellbeing and people could avail the basic needs for their living without anyproblem [2]. Therefore, the urge for such goals lead them to construct a SGD that has the abilityto change the entire world. The framework for this purpose started on 19 July 2014 when theOpen Working Group (OWG) advanced the proposal of SDG to the UN General Assembly(UNGA). The UNGA, on December 5, 2014 accepted the report of secretary general that statedthe SDG goals would be based on the proposal of the OWG. Finally, In the SDG summit held onSeptember 25 to 27, 2015 in New York, USA these goals were accepted for the future [3].Disability Inclusion Development is a part of UN SDGs proposed to create a better worldaltogether. 15 percent of the world population, which is nearly one billion, is suffering from anykind of disability and such occurrence is higher for developing countries than the developedones. It is a fact that person with disability, throughout the world, has to suffer more in everycase than the person without disability does [4]. These suffering may include, less education, lesshealthcare opportunities, less employment and higher rates of poverty. The poverty alone can

Further, it increases the chance of less educational and workrelated opportunities, polluted and unhygienic conditions and the prime reason is their bottomline needs to achieve a respectful living for them, which is food, education and employment.Inclusion of disabled person to the mainstream and expanding windows for equal opportunities isthe prime goal for the sustainable development goals 2030 that focuses on the basic needs for theworld population [5]. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the world population, who are blessedto have everything in their life, to share a bit with these needy people. Inclusion of disability inthe sustainable development goal 2030 is of importance because there were no goals mentionedfor the disabled people in the MDGs and due to which such people were feeling left out of theglobal agendas. However, adding them in the UN agenda is not going to help these people, itneeds proper vigilance and tracking as they are not always given the respect and right theydeserve [6].This critical analysis of the UNGA Resolution A/RES/70/1 Transforming our World: the2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is going to discuss the different issues regardingdisability and disability inclusion mentioned in the SDGs. the number of goals for disability islinked with SDGs, their link with human rights and their proper details are going to be discussed.How these goals support the inclusion and development in all the countries for people withdisability will be discussed. Strength, shortcomings and inadequacy of these goals forimplication in developed and developing countries by different governmental and non-governmental organizations are going to be analyzed critically. Steps that can be used to achievethese goals and the ways by which the developed countries are collecting data and measurementare going to be discussed. different process of data gathering and measurement and evaluation
