How can the National TOMs contribute to the Global Goals?

The Global Goals have been adopted by 193 world leaders at the 2015 UN’s annual General Assembly. The 17 Goals aim to create a better world by 2030, and catalyse global action to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. They require the active participation of all sectors of society: governments, businesses, civil society and the general public.

There is clear alignment between the sustainability agenda promoted by the Global Goals and the social value one promoted by the National TOMs Framework. Organisations delivering social value through the National TOMs are very likely to be contributing to the Global Goals agenda.

For those organisations that are already contributing or want to start to contribute to the Global Goals agenda, we have created a tool that helps leverage the National TOMs Framework’s power to mobilise resources, connect organisations across sectors, and empower communities to take ownership of their needs.

This interactive tool will help organisations answer the questions: “How Can the National TOMs Contribute to the Global Goals for Sustainable Development?” – and explore how different Measures contribute to specific Goals.

It has been designed as a qualitative tool that can connects the intended purpose of each measures to the Goals, and the Targets within each Goal to which it can contribute.
