The Millennium Development Goals were brought about by the United Nations to assist and promote peace, stability, international co-operation as well as tackle aspects of inequality seen around the world (Falconer, 2010).I would like to discuss the development of the MDG’s with regards to South Africa
Goal one: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
* Should focus on socio-economic development in general, whereby the needs of the average South African is taken into account as well as the factors which hinder them from achieving their objectives to sustain themselves.
* Should emphasise on the harmony between eco-tourism and industries therefore promoting the generation of some sort of income for poorer communities by uplifting and encouraging community members to get involved in legal income generating activities.
Goal two: Achieve universal primary education
* Knowledge is power; hence children from the tender age of 6 should not be denied a proper education due to the lack of income and resources.
* In order to build a solid nation primary education especially in rural parts of South Africa should be promoted and given preference previously disadvantaged children
* Continuous assessments should be provided to facilitate multiple intelligence and make the
Learning experience worthy so that learners and assessors do not become despondent.
Goal three: Promote gender equality and empower women
* Where women are educated and are able to participate in local scale sale of hand-made goods to tourist in order to generate their own source of income
* The government should promote cultural, religious, linguistic and educational exchange, and make sure financial benefits are directly transferred to the host communities which are usually headed by females.
* In South Africa women should be treated as equal persons instead of undermining the capabilities of women and girls or the hosts of destinations
Goal four: Reduce child mortality...
