A Great Step Forward but Let's Be More Daring

A Great Step Forward but Let's Be More Daring

ARTICLE: Equity for Children's Comments on the High Level Panel for the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

20 July 2013

 On May 30, the High Level Panel (HLP) on the Post-2015 Development Agenda presented its report entitled “A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies through Sustainable Development". The report proposes the new outline for a universal agenda to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. The report's emphases on children, youth and women and on inequalities are positive and promising. The Panel was established by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and co-chaired by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron.

At the same time, Equity for Children proposes considering more innovative strategies and concrete targets to tackle the world's growing inequalities. In the report, children, youth and women appear high on the agenda, a primary cause for celebrating the findings and recommendations. The five 'transformative shifts' that drive the 'universal agenda' as proposed by the HLP are relevant and promising. Equity for Children particularly commend the Panel's call to “leave no one behind" – a call that addresses for the first time the issue of inequalities and how people are marginalized on the basis of ethnicity, gender, geography, disability, age, race and/or other status.
