Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Helen Clark: From Beijing to post-2015

Beunos Aires: Now, 2015 presents new opportunities for setting a transformational agenda for women. Full gender equality and women’s empowerment must be at the very heart of the new Sustainable Development Goals. These are due to be adopted by world leaders at the United Nations Summit to adopt the post-2015 development agenda in New York in September.  The new Goals, which will succeed the Millennium Development Goals, are expected to include a standalone gender equality goal, and to integrate gender equality across the other SDGs.

Achim Steiner: '2015 will change the way we will do business in the years to come'

Geneva: I believe the year 2015 will change, once more, the way we will do business in the years to come. In July in Addis and in September in New York, with the Financing for Sustainable Development agenda and the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), there will be a paradigm shift in global public policy. The role of trade is of utmost importance in facilitating the implementation of this agenda. Trade and investment are means, not ends in themselves.
