Bond Members (UK network of organisations working in international development)
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned us that we need to take urgent action to avoid catastrophic environmental breakdown. Humanity is facing environmental, economic and social crises that are interconnected. It is impossible to solve one of these crises without addressing the others.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are not enough because they do not challenge the concentration of power in favour of privileged elites in both public and private spaces. We are calling on international NGOs to focus on theses actions and bridge the economic, social and ecological crises.

  1. Replace Gross Domestic Product (GDP) with measurements of progress based on what matters
  2. Establish and implement a collaborative approach to a post-growth transition
  3. Take a more aggressive and urgent approach to climate change
  4. Work with others to experiment with different ways of democratising the United Nations
  5. Start a public conversation about abolishing the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other undemocratic global institutions that cause poverty 
  6. Call for the abolishment of debt-based currency and for reform to the banking system
  7. Foster, promote and protect the commons, including the digital commons
  8. Build solidarity between people in the Global North and Global South and support the self-determination of indigenous communities
  9. Support corporate practices that genuinely enable the wellbeing of people and planet
  10. Support the creation of Universal Basic Income and Universal Basic Services 
  11. Help build the global movement around tax justice 
  12. Galvanise support for the abolition of debt burdens of developing countries, without imposing condition
  13. Campaign for land reform that favours small farmers 
  14. Promote fair trade and work with communities to devise better rules for trade 
  15. Campaign for a global minimum wage
