Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with its focus Ensuring No One is Left Behind in the development planning and implementation has captured and gravitated the world attention. SDGs talks about people-centric approach and principles of accountability, transparency and participation, which ensures this developmental methodology as a near perfect model for holistic development.Additionally, theoretically, SDGs are especially useful in countries where there exist inequalities with the traditional
structures which perpetuate intergenerational inequalities. With all the positive signs through this paradigm-shifting global developmental agenda, there are concerns in its reach and impact on the traditionally marginalised and socially excluded communities.
SDGs combines various aspects such as and not limited to service delivery, development and environment but the rights-based approach has insufficiently addressed. Even after four years since the SDGs are put into place however until now, ithas failed to recognise and include exclusionary variables such as discrimination based on work and descent (DWD) within the comprehensive adopted document as a human rights issue.
