The Future We Need Submission on Human Rights, the Right to Development and Global Governance to the Sixth Session of the UN General Assemblys Open Working Group on the formation of Sustainable Development Goals 9-13 December, 2013
In his report entitled A life of Dignity for All, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called on countries to adopt a post-2015 agenda that is universal, based on sustainable development and leaves nobody behind. This concept must underpin the post 2015 development agenda as it is the only way the poorest and most marginalised people on the planet can be included. While agreeing with this definition of Sustainable Development, the Future We Need Group believes Sustainable Development must also prioritise a commitment to human rights principles.
