POST-MDG AGENDA MAY REPEAT MDG DEFICITS, EXPERTS WARN

0

GENEVA: A group of United Nations (UN) human rights experts on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) welcomed the recognition of the importance of equality in a key UN report on the post-2015 development agenda, but cautioned that good intentions are not enough and called upon world leaders to adopt concrete measures to eliminate inequalities. The UN report, A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies through Sustainable Development, was launched on 3 June 2013. “Reducing inequalities and achieving substantive equality will not be accomplished ‘by a miracle’, but rather through the implementation of concrete and concerted goals and targets across a range of sectors,” the independent experts stressed.
