ASSIGNMENT OVERVIEW “The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030. The world economy has changed so much in the 25 years since World trade Organisation’s (WTO) establishment and in the 70 years since the General Agreement on Tariff and Trade (GATT), its predecessor, was born. This changed economic and political context has triggered the re-emergence of a debate about how the concepts of reciprocity, sustainable development, and special and differential treatment apply to trade in Globalization 4.0.” The above excerpt is modified from United Nation’s (UN) website and the World Economic Forum report (April 2019) for the purpose of this assignment.
