They also discuss the ultra-conservative hunger and poverty definitions and the lack of ambition around 0.7% of GNI for development assistance and its impact. They take stock of the Millenium Development Goals, their impact on India and the world and conclude with their expectations from the new set of global goals i.e. the Sustainable Development Goals hold for us, our future and our shared destinies.
