The right reasons to fund Sport for Development and Peace
Reason 4: how much does it cost?Financing sustainable development? But how much is it going to
The Council on Foreign Relations of the United Nations has
published a rating that makes you dizzy. Funding for the 17
Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 - Transforming the
World - UN program would cost between $ 90 and $ 120 trillion.
The graph above shows the distribution of the necessary
investments. $ 66 billion for the global safety net to eradicate
extreme poverty in all countries. From 5 to 7 trillion for water
infrastructure, agriculture, telecoms, power, transport,
buildings, industrial and forestry sectors. $ 50.2 billion for
the elimination of hunger. 37 billion for universal health coverage. $
37 billion for universal primary education and expanded access
to lower secondary education.
We would have to find 90 to 120 trillion dollars by 2030 to give
our children and grandchildren a planet in order. It's a safe bet
that the financing of youth sport does not weigh heavily in this
mountain of funding.
