SDRN Mailing, 12th August 2015

By Bridget Elliott on 12th August 2015

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has praised UN Member States for reaching agreement on the draft outcome document that will constitute the new sustainable development agenda. ‘Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ features 17 new sustainable development goals that aim, by 2030, to eradicate extreme poverty, promote prosperity and people's well-being, while protecting the environment. The new agenda was agreed upon by 193 UN Member States on 1st August following a negotiating process that has spanned more than two years.

On 7th July, the New Climate Economy and the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate launched its 2015 report, ‘Seizing the Global Opportunity: Partnerships for Better Growth and a Better Climate’. The report is a continuation of the work carried out for the 2014 ‘Better Growth, Better Climate’ report. It is situated in the context of the international climate negotiations in Paris in 2015 and has a special focus on international and multi-stakeholder partnerships.
