Sustainable Development Goals and the relationship to a post 2015 global development framework
Beyond 2015, 2012
Beyond 20151 welcomes the attention that is being given to the need for a global over-arching cross-thematic development framework by the international community, and hopes that the thinking around Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be a constructive contribution to this ongoing conversation.
Beyond 2015 believes that the post-2015 framework for development must be an urgent priority for the international community. It needs to draw learning from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and address the multiple interlinked global challenges of: eradicating poverty, ensuring environmental sustainability, achieving economic equity, ensuring gender equality, tackling climate change, building resilience, managing equitable distribution of natural resources, realising human rights, and reducing inequality between and within populations.
