No target met unless met for all
5 February 2015
Sense International is one of 3,200 Civil Society Organisations worldwide which have signed up to this Global Civil Society Statement on the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda:
Inequalities are not an inevitable outcome of development progress. If we are to recognise 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 272 undersigned – representing over 3,200 organisations worldwide – urge UN member states to ensure that the Declaration of the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda includes an explicit reference to the criterion that "no target should be considered met unless it is met for all social and economic groups".
