“Since September 2012, Beyond 2015, the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) and the International Forum of National NGO Platforms (IFP) have been convening national, regional, and community civil society deliberations in 39 countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia (more details here). This full synthesis report of these deliberations, Civil Society Demands for the Post 2015 Agenda from 39 countries, has just been released. “
The main themes covered in the report include:
“Equality – gender equality, social inclusion, and just global governance are essential for achieving transformation.
Environmental Sustainability – all development must happen within planetary boundaries, and corporations must be held responsible for the environmental destruction they cause.
Human Rights – rights must be at the core of a post-2015 framework, ensuring no one is left behind.
Eradication of Poverty and Hunger – there is no excuse for hunger. The time to end poverty is now. We need to redefine poverty to be a more holistic measure of inclusive development.
Accountability and Participation – In order to be effective, the future framework must emphasize accountability to all stakeholders through transparent access to information, and enable the meaningful participation of people.”
