This report was prepared with substantial input from 5 pilot countries, Albania, Indonesia, Rwanda,Tunisia and the United Kingdom on an initiative to pilot illustrative work on governance in the context of the discussions on the Sustainable Development Goals. The report draws out the main lessons learned from the Pilots experience, and identifies some guidelines for work on implementation of aspects of Sustainable Development Goal 16.
This report is the outcome of a discussion among many experts, who were actively engaged in the design of sound indicators for measuring Goal 16, as an input to the work of the United Nations Statistical Commission's Inter-Agency and Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDG) and the Praia Group on Governance Statistics.
This booklet provides a brief introduction to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim to end poverty and hunger by 2030. World leaders, recognizing the con- nection between people and planet, have set goals for the land, the oceans and the waterways. That future is one where everybody has enough food, and can work, and where living on less than $1.25 a day is a thing of the past. UNDP is proud to be a leader in this global movement.
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have produced the most successful anti-poverty movement in history and will serve as the jumping-off point for the new sustainable development agenda to be adopted this year.
UNDP in Focus 2014-2015 highlights our key actions over the past year and their impact on the lives of beneficiaries around the world. The report also outlines the ongoing restructuring process that will ensure UNDP is fit for purpose in the new post-2015 landscape.
With the deadline for the MDGs on the horizon, progress can be reported in most areas, the report says. Several important targets have or will be met by 2015, assuming continued commitment by national governments, the international community, civil society and the private sector.
