UNDP: Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda

UNDP
“World leaders have an unprecedented opportunity this year to shift the world onto a path of inclusive, sustainable and resilient development” – Helen Clark, UNDP Administrator, January 2015.

Paul Ladd, Director of the UNDP Team on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, talks about 2015, a year in which countries will shape a new development agenda, and reach a global agreement on climate change.

What is the post-2015 sustainable development agenda?

The new post-2015 development agenda builds on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), eight anti-poverty targets that the world committed to achieving by 2015.
