All the Countries of the World Have Agreed to Implement
The UN Sustainable Development Goals and their Targets
By far the most important initiative and best opportunity for reform in the world ever

All the countries of the world, including the United States, have agreed to implement the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their 169 Targets in their countries. Developed countries, including the U.S. have agreed to help all the developing countries with their implementation.


This means all the countries of the world have committed to work together to resolve all the significant issues/problems of the world including eliminate all nuclear weapons; end all wars conflicts, violence, unemployment, poverty, hunger, inequality and racism; provide clean water, nutritious food, decent housing, quality health care, education and training, full employment at guaranteed living wages, clean energy, equal justice for all; pay off the national debt; and, reduce the rate and degree of global warming and climate change and mitigate their adverse effects.


The spirit and intent of the SDGs and their Targets are clear and they are fantastic. However, they were written/modified by many organizations in different countries, are not well organized, need refining, are currently severely underfunded, scheduled to take way too much time and are Goals and Targets not Action Plans.


Although the UN SDGs have been in effect since January 1, 2016, the U.S. Government has done very little to implement them or prepare plans for their implementation. 


Following is paraphrased from an article by Michael Payne: China has it, America doesn’t; a vision or a strategic plan for the future. “Our backward, shallow-thinking government and leaders have absolutely no plan, priorities, vision, direction or strategy for the future. Those in control of the U.S., specifically in the presidency and Congress, are in a state of chaos, turmoil and political paralysis of their own making. They go from day to day just reacting to conditions that as they emerge." Read article


Millions of people and thousands of organizations all over the world in the public and private sectors are already working on reform without knowing much about the SDGs. Most are not collaborating and working together from a common strategy and plans nearly well enough. A great deal of work is being duplicated and some key items are being missed. Working together on the SDGs will resolve this.


In her article Reading I.F. Stone on Earth Day, Naomi Klein states: "What I.F. Stone saw clearly, and what bears repeating four and half decades later, is that the ecological movement will get nowhere if it fails to connect the dots with other overlapping crises facing our society, from racism to militarism to inequality"


In his book, The Sane Society, Eric Fromm states: "Change must be a simultaneous change in economic, education, political and cultural spheres. Changes restricted to one sphere are destructive of every change." This means that:

  • Both the public and private sectors must cooperate and work together and every significant change made must be part of a comprehensive strategy and plan that addresses all significant problem.

  • All significant changes must be coordinated and sequenced carefully, not managed, from a central office.

  • If we continue to work separately and make one or two changes at a time, we will never be successful and wars, poverty, hunger, inequalities, etc. will get worse.

Description of
Action Plan - AP 50
Universal Strategic Plan to Prepare Target Action Plans (TAPs) for All UN
SDG Targets, Make Preparations for their Implementation and Have a Peaceful, Prosperity, Just Sustainability World (USP)


  • Has 43 SDG Target Action Plans (TAPs) to implements the more urgent Targets in various stages of development.

  • Has developed the draft Universal Strategic Plan to ultimately prepare TAPs for the remaining two thirds or so of the SDG Targets and to make preparations for the implementation of all the SDG TAPs.

  • Requests private and public sector organizations in the U.S, other countries, the UN and its affiliated organizations please learn about the USP and TAPs and send additions and changes to these plans by email to refinetheplan@peoplenow.org or fax to 703-521-3926.

Every significant paragraph of every TAP and USP document is uniquely numbered making it easier to add items, recommend changes to and edit these documents. Attachment A of the Common Agenda of SDG TAPS and USP Documents provides a Glossary of Terms and Description of the Standard Numbering System for all UN SDG TAPs, SDG Target Actions (TAs) and USP Documents.


If an organization or individual is working on a significant issues for which there is no TA or TAP, PeopleNow.org will develop one.

Applicable SDG TAPs, originally prepared mainly for the U.S. Federal Government, will be replicated and modified for use in parallel plans in cities, states, other nations, the United Nations and its related organizations. Lessons learned and better ways to implement each TA and TAP will be fed back into all TAs and TAPs as applicable using an advanced industrial management system which is being planned and developed.


Significant work will be coordinated and sequenced, not managed, from a central office

Action Plan -  AP 45 Plan to Rapidly and Permanently Eliminate Nuclear Weapons and End Wars, Unemployment, Poverty, Hunger, Inequality, Racism, etc. and Reduce the Rate and Degree of Global Warming and Climate Change and Mitigate their Adverse Effects Worldwide by the Public and Private Sectors Implementing the UN SDG Target Action Plans (TAPs)

Request organizations and individuals work together in solidarity to help refine and implement this plan. Individuals do not need to read or understand all of it - just the part in which you are interested and how it fits into the entire plan.

Please note that the very urgent Target Actions will be implemented without waiting until the preparations are completed for all the less urgent TAPs.
