01 Jul 2013

The President of Indonesia on behalf the 27-member independent High Level Panel on the post-2015 development agenda handed over their report on May 30th to UN Secretary General (SG) Ban Ki-moon.

New Horizons, July 2013 - A “single, universal development agenda” built around “five transformational shifts” sits at the heart of the report.

The High Level Panel, co-chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, was established by the SG to inform his thinking on a bold but practical vision for the world we want.

For the past year, the panel has deliberated on post 2015 development agenda.

The report, entitled “A New Global Partnership: eradicate poverty and transform economies through sustainable development” sets out a universal agenda to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030 and deliver on the promise of sustainable development.

The Report sets out five transformational shifts: ending extreme poverty; building a future around truly sustainable development; transforming economies for jobs and inclusive growth; forging a new spirit of partnership; and peace and accountability.

“The post-2015 process is a chance to usher in a new era in international development – one that will eradicate extreme poverty and lead us to a world of prosperity, sustainability, equity and dignity for all,” the Ban Ki-moon declared.

Right now, the UN is engaging people around the world at scale to ask their perspective on the world they want.

Nearly 750,000 people from 194 countries have tabled their views so far.
