Final Report of the Global Thematic Consultation on Governance and the Post-2015 Development Framework

The Final Report of the Global Thematic Consultation on Governance and the Post-2015 Development Framework has been released. Here are its key points:

  • Responsive and effective governance is multi-dimensional and a critical means to achieve development goals, but it is also important as an end in itself and for people to interact and exercise their rights
  • Governance is an enabler for socio-economic transformation and the improvement of lives through the eradication of structural inequality
  • Coherence among policies within and across governance levels, including national ownership of an international framework, is imperative
  • Policy and democratic space is required for social service delivery and policy implementation
  • Accountability and transparency, underpinned by international human rights standards and principles, are essential for ensuring that development is sustainable and responsive to the needs of people
  • Combating corruption is essential to safeguard and promote better development outcomes
  • The empowerment and meaningful participation of individuals and civil society in governance systems are necessary to tackle inequality and promote social inclusion
  • Strengthening local governments and local development is critical for ensuring empowerment, civic participation and better service delivery
  • Power relationships between public and private actors, as well as communities need realignment
  • Youth concerns are critical for the post-2015 agenda
  • Gender responsive and rights-based governance systems are central for enabling the realization of women’s rights and implementation of gender equality goals which must address structural issues of discrimination
  • The role and regulation of the private sector is pivotal and businesses need to be accountable to the public, especially for the management of public goods and services
  • Access to justice and effective justice administration are enablers for development and human rights
  • Governance and human rights are measurable and can be monitored; thus ensuring a measurable implementation, accountability and monitoring framework for the post-2015 development agenda is critical
