UN High Level Panel puts forward 12 sample Goals to build on the the success of the Millennium Development Goals.
The UN High Level Panel Report setting out ideas on a post-2015 global development agenda has been released. It states that extreme poverty can be ended if we embrace sustainable development with social, economic and environmental dimensions.
The report, calling for “a global, people-centred and planet-sensitive agenda” was drawn up after meetings and consulatations with thousands of groups and individuals around the world. It has five broad rules for a universal roadmap to achieve the twin goals of poverty eradication and sustainable development by 2030. It also puts forward 12 sample goals to build on the the success of the Millennium Development Goals.

In the aftermath of the Civil War in 17th Century England, radicals argued for major land reform. Traditional forms of provisioning had failed. The Levellers argued for a new understanding of how land might be made available to the disinherited and hungry: shared land and shared labour. They believed that an equal relationship with the land could form the basis for a just society and underpin human dignity in work.
Millennium Development Goal 8 - Develop a Global Partnership for Development - is a goal with significant implications for high-income nations. Being committed to a serious global partnership requires effective governance and a commitment to global accountability – not just one’s own citizens.
Classical and gospel music artists performed at a unique concert on Saturday in Paris to highlight EXPOSED, a worldwide anti-corruption campaign. The crowd at the venue heard classical greats as well as gospel music.
The Global Call for EXPOSED 2013 was officially launched in France and over 200 concertgoers had the opportunity to be among the first to add their voice calling for integrity and transparency in public life and an end to corruption. 104 people added their signature at the event.
It was very encouraging to see everyone so focused on campaigning challenges and so keen to grapple with corruption issues via the EXPOSED campaign.
We explored the EXPOSED toolkit and tackled gritty issues for nations like Malaysia where public meetings of Christians are risky, or India where the laws are good on paper but shaky in reality.
