Cont…Social policy and administration (SPAA) is a method of social work that seeks to, among other things, equip social workers with the requisite administrative as well as managerial skills that enable themto effectively discharge their duties in various work settings. "One of the major purposes of social work is to contribute to the development and improvement of social policy" (Pincus and Minahan1973:9).Social workers are responsible for the day to dayrunning of various institutions such as the Department of Social Services here in Zimbabwe, Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs)such as WorldVision, PSI, Christian Care and Plan International.In view of the fact that most social problems that affect people are better dealt with at policy level, social workers should beable to formulate, implement and review organizational policies so thatthe respective organizations’ services are responsive to the needs of the people. As we discuss this module, it is important to understand the context in which things are happening. As we speak rightnow, there is so much poverty, inequality and social exclusion in many different parts of the world. (For example 70% of the world's poor, that is, those living on less than USD 1.25 are women. Twothirds of theworld's illiterates are women. This module seeks to produce a cadre who is able to craft sound socio-economic policies for the betterment of all humanity. Remember in September 2015United Nations member countries (Zimbabwe included) adopted the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development that includes the following 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) :Goal 1:NopovertyGoal 2:Zero hungerGoal 3:Good health and well-beingGoal 4:Quality educationGoal 5: Gender equalityGoal 6: Clean waterand sanitationGoal 7: Affordable and clean energyGoal 8: Decent work and economic growth.Goal 9: Industry innovation and infrastructureGoal 10: Reduced inequalityGoal 11:Sustainable cities and communities
Goal 12: Responsible consumption and production.Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and it's impact.Goal 14: Life below water.Goal 15: Life on land.Goal 16: Peace, justice and strong institutionsGoal 17: Partnerships to achieve the above goals. We want well thought out policies that will see 169 targets set forthe above mentioned SDGs being realized.Many countries are way off the mark in terms of realising SDGs targets by2030. How far have we gone as a country?
