Jamaica is no doubt a beautiful island, a place where many would love to call home mainly because of its beautiful surroundings.
However, for some who live here day to day, life is not quite awesome and there is so much that can be done to not only make Jamaica, the island, better but also improve the life of the citizens of Jamaica. That is where vision 2030 comes in.
The first long-term strategic development plan for Jamaica, Vision 2030 Jamaica, spans the 21-year period from 2009 to 2030.
"Jamaica, the place of choice to live, work, raise families and do business."
Goal 2030, the growth of Jamaica is based on four strategic objectives. These objectives are designed to work together and reinforce one another, making it impossible to achieve them alone.
They provide the vision statement with more clarity and serve as the foundation for the new paradigm of Jamaica's sustainable development.
The 15 National Outcomes that are linked to these four national goals will then be pursued through national strategies. The desired changes in development conditions are reflected in the national outcomes, which, when reached, will result in the accomplishment of the national goals and vision.
There are actually seven guiding principles. The seven guiding principles emphasize factors that are crucial to ensuring a high standard of living for all Jamaicans and highlight the fundamental pillars of change required to fulfil the Vision for our country.
Corporate social responsibility (CSR), or the incorporation of sustainable development in business activities, is one of the social responsibility initiatives supported by Vision 2030 Jamaica.
In order to advance both national objectives and the Sustainable Development Goals, social responsibility provides a framework for ethics and accountability for all development players, including the general public. This framework is provided through Vision 2030 Jamaica (SDGs)
In this setting, individuals, groups, and organizations must balance the requirements of the individual with those of the collective in their goals and activities. This includes maintaining a balance between the processes of social, economic, and environmental growth.
Key principles of socially responsible behaviour include encouraging open access to publicly relevant data, participating in public reporting, and welcoming public criticism.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are a series of 17 interconnected global development goals that are "wide and universal" and constitute a call to action for all nations to achieve sustainable and equitable development by the year 2030.
The SDGs were formally implemented on January 1, 2016, after being accepted by world leaders in September 2015 at a historic UN Summit. A blueprint for cooperation, peace, and prosperity for people and the earth both now and in the future is provided by the goals.
Will vision 2030 live up to its word? No one really knows, we will all have to wait until 2030 to find out. To learn more about Vision 2030, you can visit the website which will provide more information.
