Moving from commitments to results is the perennial challenge of United Nationsĺ commitments, going back to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which in essence enshrines all of the commitments made since then, up to and including the goals and targets of 'Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Results demand action.
 Harness political will to drive effective change
 Enforce the rule of law
 Mainstream gender equality and implement the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action
 Dismantle patriarchal structures. Real results cannot be achieved until girls and women enjoy their full human rights.
 Mobilize required budget resources by (i) redirecting military spending to development (ii) ensuring equitable redistribution of wealth to reduce inequality
 Implement immediately national floors of social protection
 Engage people through participatory processes and collaborative partnerships. People of all ages and identities are agents of their own development.
 Provide infrastructure and basic services - roads, water, sanitation, health, education, and housing - to create a habitable environment where communities and people thrive.
 Extend the equity approach of United Nations' Children's Fund (UNICEF) to countries and people furthest from the center first.
 Regulate the corporate sector, implementing the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights prioritizing people and decent work over growth and greed.
 Secure the planet for future generations through committed actions to ensure healthy ecosystems, and to mitigate the climate crisis in a spirit of solidarity and justice.
 Evaluate all action against the principles of Gender Justice, Climate Justice, and Redistributive Justice.
