Governance Trends in the Intergovernmental Sustainable Development Discourse: A Text Analysis – This Institute for Global Environmental Strategies working paper by Simon Olsen and Eric Zusman outlines the trends on governance in intergovernmental negotiations on sustainable development over the last 40 years. Collaborative forms of governance are increasingly emphasised, laying the ground for a post-2015 agenda based on partnerships and collaboration among diverse partners.
Communication on a Global Partnership for Poverty Eradication and Sustainable Development after 2015 – This European Commission communique will serve as the basis for negotiating positions in both post-2015 and Addis agreements and outlines key components of the means of implementing and monitoring.
Grounding the Post-2015 Development Agenda: Options for the protection of our precious soil and land resources – This Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies policy brief highlights the crucial roles that soils and land will play in achieving several (at least nine) of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and proposes options for monitoring, follow-up, and review of soil- and land-related targets.
Catalysing inclusive and transformative Financing for Development – This TAP Network brief proposes six recommendations for inclusion in the Addis Outcome Document: 1) full transparency of revenues, allocation, data/statistics and spending at all levels; 2) inclusive and meaningful public participation at all stages of the process; 3) a common standard for reporting and a global and national tracking system; 4) effective and accountable institutions to prevent illicit flows; 5) reduction of corruption and bribery in all forms; and 6) investment to equip citizens, legislators and others to understand and use financial and development data effectively.
