Six months after giving birth to a cluster of nebulous Sustainable Development Goals that aim to dramatically change the economic, social and environmental course of the planet, the United Nations is working on a drastic renovation of global data gathering to measure progress against its sweeping international agenda.
“Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.” Zephaniah 3:8 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: Just so you know, when the United Nations talks about “global sustained development”, what they mean is the governing and rationing of food, clothing, shelter, utilities and health care. Why do you think that so much effort was put on passing Obamacare? In one fell swoop, America was brought online with the global agenda goals of the UN. And as you will see in the first video below, the United Nations is getting ready to “throw the switch”.
The result that emerged late last week from the U.N. Statistical Commission — an obscure body of national experts that calls itself the “apex entity of the international statistics system” — is a document as sprawling, undefined and ambitious as the sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, themselves — which lay out 17 goals and 169 sometimes overlapping targets to transform global society.
SDG indicators: The last missing piece of the 2030 UN Global Agenda
In attempting to cover at least some of that ground, the so-called “draft global indicators framework” likely will add huge new volumes of information that governments collect as they measure progress toward what amounts to a global socialist or progressive agenda.
To the extent that the indicators are adopted or incorporated by national governments, such as that of the U.S., they will also provide a powerful reorientation of public debate as they filter into academic and policy discussions.
In all, the draft framework outlines 230 statistical indicators to measure progress toward the SDGs, including such familiar ones as per-capital Gross Domestic Product and the proportion of populations living below national and international poverty lines.

According to the U.N. General Assembly resolution that called for their creation, the new SDG indicators are supposed to be “simple but robust.” Among the relatively novel measurements the draft framework proposes to develop:
■ The “proportion of government recurrent and capital spending going to sectors that disproportionately benefit women, poor and vulnerable groups”
■ The “extent to which global citizenship education and education for sustainable development . . . are mainstreamed at all levels in national education politics, curricula, teacher education and student assessment”
■ The “number of countries that have implemented well-managed migration policies”
■ The “average income of small-scale food producers, by sex and indigenous status”
■ The “proportion of persons victim of physical or sexual harassment, by sex, age, disability status and place of occurrence, in the previous 12 months”
■ The “mortality rate attributed to unintentional poisoning”
■ The “proportion of national Exclusive Economic Zones [200-mile ocean limits] managed using ecosystem-based approaches”
■ The “number of plant and animal genetic resources for food and agriculture secured in either medium or long-term conservation facilities”
■ “Progress by countries in the degree of implementation of international instruments aiming to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing”
The indicators endorsed in the framework are “unprecedented in their scale and nuance,” according to John Pullinger, National Statistician of Britain, and immediate past chair of an expert group of national statistical agencies that pulled together the indicators for the United Nations Statistical Commission.
OBAMA ANNOUNCES 2030 AGENDA – Agenda 21 Turns Into 2030 Agenda
Why do you think that Barack Obama is campaigning hard to be the next Secretary General of the United Nations? Having turned America over to the globalists, he wants to now control the rest of the nations as well. He is still in the running for the NTEB “Guess Who The Antichrist Is” award.
(The U.S. was not an expert group member, but participated in a grouping known as the Friends of the Chair of the Statistical Commission that provided guidance for the effort.)
Among other things, the SDG indicator quest included a “really strong push,” in Pullinger’s phrase, for “disaggregation,” which has been defined by the U.N. as a breakdown of statistics by “income, sex, age, race, ethnicity, migratory status, disability and geographical location, or other characteristics.” source
