    Sep 23, 2013

  • MDGs and beyond 2015, a strong EU Engagement
    Sep 25, 2013

    As one of the key actors, the EU has an important role to play in defining a new post-2015 framework. The EU is likely to build on the current MDG approach and to maintain poverty eradication as the central objective.

  • The Report of the High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015
    Sep 25, 2013

    Report provides an example of how new goals and measurable targets could be framed in the wake of these transformative shifts. This list is illustrative rather than prescriptive. While views naturally differed within the panel on the exact wording of particular illustrative goals or targets we agreed that our report would be found wanting without a collective attempt to demonstrate how a simple clear agenda building on the MDGs and the Rio+20 process might be elaborated. It is believed that it will stimulate debate over the prioritisation that will be needed if the international community is to agree a new development framework before the expiry of the Millennium Development Goals.

  • Communication: A DECENT LIFE FOR ALL:
Ending poverty and giving the world a sustainable future
    Sep 26, 2013

    This Communication proposes a common EU approach to these issues. To do this, it first identifies the main global challenges and opportunities. It then turns to evaluate the success of global poverty eradication agenda and the experience of the MDGs, as well as outlining some of the key steps towards sustainable development as agreed in Rio+20, and outlining key actions. It then describes the challenges and elements for a future framework that can be drawn from the experience of the MDGs and the work stemming from Rio+20, in particular the elaboration of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and indicates how these can be brought together within relevant UN processes.
