Why the question:
The question is based on the theme of global governance and its importance in achieving sustainable economic development goals.
Key Demand of the question:
One must answer in what way Global governance is crucial to harmonize economic policies and sustainability.
Discuss – This is an all-encompassing directive – you have to debate on paper by going through the details of the issues concerned by examining each one of them. You have to give reasons for both for and against arguments.
Structure of the answer:
Define what global governance is; Global Governance is the collective management of common transnational or global problems- those were created or exacerbated by globalization, and which cannot be managed at the level of nation-states.
Explain that as the world becomes more interdependent, global governance including global economic governance and the governance of the global commons, is increasingly relevant for achieving sustainable development goals like dealing with climate change, economic inequality and ensuring peace and justice.
Discuss nuances of why it plays a key role in achieving SDGs and quote examples wherever possible.
Conclude that therefore, increased coherence, coordination and collective decision-making at the global level, grounded in international human rights standards and guided by the human rights commitments of the international community, are necessary
