  • Progress has been far from uniform across the world-or across the Goals. There are huge disparities across and within countries. Within countries, poverty is greatest for rural areas, though urban poverty is also extensive, growing, and underreported by traditional indicators.
  • Just give a quick overview as you will talk of the different bodies in next slides. In pink the processes that resulted from Rio+20 discussions. OWG started in mid-2013 and will have thematic meetings until February 2014. Will report to UNGA by September 2014 High Level Political Forum will meet for the first time in September at Heads of State Level. To provide political leadership, guidance and recommendations for sustainable development Expert committee on financing : met for the first time in August, will report by September 2014 In blue the UN/UNSG processes UN Task Team is advisory body of UN technical experts, advised HLP and now OWG HLP now over. Reported in May 2013 In brown the different consultations which started mid-2012, some still going on. UNDG recently launched report with result of consultations “The World We Want”: Process ahead : On 25 September the UN will host a Special Event to review progress towards achieving the MDGs and to define a roadmap to agree the post-2015 framework. According to draft outcome document from this event, the process is likely to include a summit in September 2014 to review all input to date and officially launch intergovernmental process that will culminate in a Summit in September 2015 to agree new set of goals.
  • * Leave no-one behind – moving from reducing poverty to ending it, with no person, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, or disability, being denied basic economic opportunities and fundamental human rights. Goals only considered met when met in all “social groups” • Sustainable development at the core – a shift away from destructive patterns of economic development towards sustainable patterns of production and consumption. • Transform economies for jobs and inclusive growth – ensuring growth benefits the societies and people who need it most, while ending the jobs crisis and harnessing the energy of youth. • Build peace and effective, open, and accountable institutions for all – recognizing that peace and good governance are essential to human well-being and sustainable development. • Forge a new global partnership – build a broad partnership able to deliver the post-2015 agenda and harness the finance needed to invest in change.
  • leave no one behind: Targets will only be considered ‘achieved’ if they are met for all relevant income and social groups. Global inequality crisis: the leave no one behind narrative is welcomed, but what about the extreme concentrations of wealth at the top end? HR: rhetoric good, absent in core recommendations  Growth: An over-reliance on economic growth as a driver of progress Lack of specific recommendations on the monitoring and accountability mechanisms 
  • Sustainable Development Solutions Network report: proposes 10 goals covering economic growth and the end of poverty, social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and good governance UN Global Compact report: collected feedback from over 1,700 companies regarding their perspectives on how business can contribute towards global development priorities
  • 1. ‘VISION’ : This is the broader state in which we want the world to be and towards which we want the post-2015 framework to be working. 2. ‘PURPOSE’ : This is the particular role of the framework, describing exactly how the framework is going to contribute towards the changes necessary to achieve the vision. 3. ‘VALUES’ : The Values are both elements that are integral to our Vision – a world where these Values are embodied – and means by which we will achieve our Purpose -as they also govern the process of implementation of the framework. 4. ‘CRITERIA’ : The criteria are means to evaluate specific proposals for goals. These should facilitate a basic but systematic assessment of whether a proposed goal is a strong option for a post-2015 framework.
  • UK Government positions: “end poverty in this lifetime”, “golden thread” link, not pro income inequality goals. Will work hard to sell HLP report. Key message of the Golden Thread: if societies are to move from poverty to prosperity, they need to have the right institutions and governance arrangements in place. For David Cameron, these include property rights, human rights, the rule of law, transparency, accountability, free markets, a vibrant private sector, stable government, free media, fair elections and an effective civil society. Key messages on Education; Gender; Disability; Youth; Ageing; Social exclusion and Inequalities (in general, including absolute poverty and income inequality); Health; Water and Sanitation; Environmental Sustainability (including climate); Resilience to disasters and climate change; Conflict & Fragility; Protection from violence, abuse and exploitation; Governance (including accountability and transparency); Financing for Development; Global Partnership (including PCD, trade, partnerships, Private Sector); data; population dynamics
  • - Flag that some governments don’t have capacity or haven’t engaged with this process, so would welcome briefings on what is at stake and advice from specialist organisations.

    1. 1. For a strong and legitimate post-2015 global framework Joanna Rea, Policy and Government Relations Manager, Bond
    2. 2. MDGs • In 2000, 189 world leaders signed the UN Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty and setting out eight goals with a deadline of 2015 – the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) • MDGs recognised as extremely helpful in focusing policy makers’ attention and resources in eight development-related priorities, and a great advocacy tool for civil society • Progress uneven and only 3 MDGs met so far: on poverty, access to water and parity in primary education between boys and girls • 2015: an opportunity to adopt a twin track approach of accelerating progress towards the MDGs, while lobbying for an ambitious post-2015 global development framework that addresses new world challenges and finishes the job of the MDGs

David Cameron Ellen Johnson Sirleaf Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono • Reported in May 2013: “A New Global Partnership: Eradicate poverty and transform economies through sustainable development” • ‘Five transformational shifts' to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030 and move away from business as usual – Leave no-one behind – Put sustainable development at the core of future plans – Transform economies for jobs and inclusive growth – Build peace and effective, open and accountable institutions for all – Forge a new global partnership • Illustrative goal framework with 12 goals and 54 targets, plus call for data revolution UN High Level Panel on post-2015
    5. 5. Civil Society analysis of HLP report Welcoming of: • Universality • Linking environment and development • ‘leave no one behind’: track progress across income and social groups • Goes beyond the aid paradigm • Goal on gender inequality • Focus on improved and disaggregated data • Focus on domestic resource mobilisation • Peace as one of the key priorities • Commitment to unfinished agenda of MDGs Missed the mark on: • Fails to challenge the current growth narrative and status quo of the global financial system • Global inequality crisis: does not address redistribution of wealth and access to resources • Needed to be stronger on human rights • Universal Health Coverage • Disaster risk reduction • Population dynamics, ageing, migration Things to watch: how the more ambitious components will fare within the UN MS negotiations, one single process and set of goals, shrinking space for civil society
    6. 6. • UNSG reported to UNGA in August 2013: “A life of dignity for all: accelerating progress towards the MDGs and advancing the UN development agenda beyond 2015” • Based on inputs from UN consultations, and reports from the HLP, Sustainable Development Solutions Network, UN Global Compact • Report assesses progress to date and identifies successful initiatives to contribute to the achievement of the MDGs • On the post-2015 agenda, the UNSG calls for one universal single set of goals with sustainable development as the global guiding principle • Proposed overarching objectives: "Poverty eradication, inclusive growth targeting inequality, protecting and managing the natural resource base of our planet within a rights-based framework and cognizant of the nexus between peace and development ". This requires "economic shifts to sustainable patterns of production and consumption, effective governance and a renewed global partnership and means of implementation." UNSG Report
    7. 7. Next steps • UN Special Event on 25 September: there will be short outcome document assessing MDG progress and providing a timeline to 2015 • Draft roadmap includes a summit in Sept 2014 to review all input and another in 2015 to agree the goals.
