Civil society reacts to the Secretary-General’s post-2015 SDG report

by the URG team Press


Beyond 2015 – a global civil society campaign which the URG is proud to be a part of – has published a reaction paper to the UN Secretary General’s synthesis report, The road to dignity by 2030: ending poverty, transforming all lives and protecting the planet, an important contribution to the post-2015 process.

In the reaction paper, Beyond2015 provides a review of the Secretary General’s broader call for an ambitious, universal agenda, with equality and equity, participation, people and planet at the core, as well as focused analysis of some of the Secretary General’s specific proposals on how to achieve this agenda.

In an article published last week, Universal Rights Group Director Subhas Gujadhur welcomed the ‘principled stance’ put forward by the Secretary General in the synthesis report, in which he “reinforces that the post 2015 development agenda must advance human rights equally for all,” but expressed concern that “insufficient attention” had been given “to translating human rights rhetoric into concrete proposals on how to realize them.”
