UN Task Team on Post-2015 publishes its first report

You can read the full report here.

The UN System Task Team on the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda has published its first report – Realizing the Future We Want for All – where it recommends that new goals should build on the strengths of the Millennium Development Goals, apply to all countries, and be based on the fundamental principles of human rights, equality, and sustainability.

The report acknowledges the highly interdependent nature of current global challenges and thus advocates for a new, more holistic approach to address them. Among the main recommendations included in this first report:

  • A vision for the future that rests on the core values of hu­man rights, equality and sustainability.
  • An agenda format based on concrete end goals and targets organized along four key dimensions of a more holistic approach: (1) inclusive social development; (2) inclusive economic development; (3) environmental sustainability; and (4) peace and security.  
  • To realize the future we want for all, a high degree of policy coherence at the global, regional, national and sub-national levels will be required. The core set of “development ena­blers” can be identified as a guide for such policy coherence.
  • In setting the agenda, it should be recog­nized that one size does not fit all. Hence, the agenda should leave ample space for national policy design and adaptation to local settings, but be guided by the overall vision and its underlying principles.
  • The post-2015 UN development agenda should be con­ceived as a truly global agenda with shared responsibilities for all countries.
