Essential must haves - Leadership

Who leads, who owns and who implements?

a) The UN is the only legitimate and representative global governance structure and must lead the process.

b) The process must not be led by the G20, G8, OECD or any other non-representative global forum.

c) National governments must have primary ownership of, and accountability for the framework and its delivery. Governments should make use of local expertise, but must also be able to request external expertise without sacrificing control of their development strategy, and international institutions must respect and support, as appropriate to their mandate, existing national development frameworks.
