Post-2015: No target met unless met for all

ARTICLE 19 has joined over 200 organisations in calling on the UN Secretary General to make sure that inequality is fully addressed is his upcoming Synthesis Report.

This follows our recent joint statement, to mark Right to Know Day, urging that the Secretary General recognise how access to information is a fundamental freedom integral to sustainable development.


GLOBAL CIVIL SOCIETY STATEMENT: NO TARGET MET UNLESS MET FOR ALL

Inequalities are not an inevitable outcome of development progress. If we are to recognize the truly transformative potential of the new sustainable development framework we must embed equity at its core. No one must be left behind by virtue of their gender, age, disability, income, geography or ethnicity.

We, the undersigned organizations, urge the United Nations Secretary General to include an explicit commitment in his Synthesis Report on the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda that no target should be considered met unless it is met for all social and economic groups.
