Association on sustainable development and investment climate improvement, uniting investors and creditors “World Organization for Development”:
WOD conducts research in the field of sustainable development, factors affecting the dynamics and stability of achieving the SDGs, and searches for hidden systemic reserves that can give a significant and long-term impetus to sustainable development. An analysis of the experience of combating COVID-19 shows that governors and governor teams have made a significant practical contribution to the fight and overcoming the consequences of COVID-19. The heads and leaders of the upper-level territorial entities and their teams (states, provinces, regions, cities of central subordination, lands, districts, and special administrative regions) in practice implemented all the goals and objectives set by the WHO and governments. The heads of territorial entities and their teams mobilized mayors of cities and the population to fight COVID-19. The situation is complicated not only by COVID-19, but also by the growing dynamics of regional conflicts, sanctions and information confrontation, international supply chains have been disrupted. Geopolitics came to the fore, and sustainable development receded into the background. An important question arose: who, besides the UN, will really be engaged in the implementation of the Agenda for Sustainable Development, if the heads of state and federal governments have chosen geopolitics and confrontation as a priority?
Moreover, it is necessary to attract those who really have experience, teams, powers, legislative initiative, budgets, and influence in society. And most importantly, we need those who are really responsible in practice in states for economic, innovative, technological, environmental, and sustainable development in general, but at the same time, they are not directly involved in foreign policy. We present to the UN and the High-Level Political Forum a proposal that can give a systemic impetus to sustainable development for the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development at all levels.
In 2021, the UN designated as SDG Good Practices an Initiative proposed by WOD: Global Initiative for Sustainable Development of Territorial Entities #SDGAction33410 https://sdgs.un.org/partnerships/global-initiative-sustainable-development-territorial-entities
The mission of the Initiative is to create a governor’s dialogue platform for the exchange of effective practices and successful experience in the management and development of the Territorial Entities of the countries of the world in order to achieve the SDGs, as well as initiate the establishment of the United Nations Territorial Development Program. Territorial entities are customers, producers, consumers and transiters of products of the new technological order and their potential, for the successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda, for all 17 Goals and 169 Tasks, will be effectively implemented by the UN Territorial Development Program, using the tools of the Global Initiative for the Sustainable Development of Territorial.
