United Nations Sustainable Development Summit 2015 Outcome document: Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

25 – 27 September 2015
The United Nations summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda will be held from 25 to 27 September 2015, in New York and convened as a high-level plenary meeting of the General Assembly.

Abstract / Resumen:

This Agenda is a plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. It also seeks to strengthen universal peace in larger freedom. We recognise that eradicating poverty in all its forms and dimensions, including extreme poverty, is the greatest global challenge and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development.
All countries and all stakeholders, acting in collaborative partnership, will implement this plan. We are resolved to free the human race from the tyranny of poverty and want and to heal and secure our planet. We are determined to take the bold and transformative steps which are urgently needed to shift the world onto a sustainable and resilient path. As we embark on this collective journey, we pledge that no one will be left behind.
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets which we are announcing today demonstrate the scale and ambition of this new universal Agenda. They seek to build on the Millennium Development Goals and complete what these did not achieve. They seek to realize the human rights of all and to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls. They are integrated and indivisible and balance the three dimensions of sustainable development: the economic, social and environmental.

    The sustainable Development goals should be made known to all people every where. Most often such information become the domain of health experts, which is not the best. Such information should be translated into local languages and well desiminated so that every one can get informed. This is about the ordinary people and they should be involved in the entire process.
    I am planning a radio programme to reach ordinary folks with reproductive health/ childbirth information, and i will use the plateform to inform the populace of Ghana about the SDG.
