Blueprint for Post-2015
In a briefing to the 193-MemberAssembly in December last year, the UN chief presented his synthesis report, alongside the President of the General Assembly, H.E. Mr. Sam Kutesa. The report is to set the stage for agreement on the new framework at a September 2015 summit.
“[We] have an historic opportunity and duty to act, boldly, vigorously and expeditiously, to turn reality into a life of dignity for all, leaving no one behind,” said the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, on 4 December as he presented his synthesis report The Road to Dignity by 2030: Ending Poverty, Transforming All Lives and Protecting the Planet. The Secretary- General also welcomed the outcome produced by the Open Working Group, saying its 17 proposed sustainable development goals and 169 associated targets clearly expressed an agenda aiming at ending poverty, achieving shared prosperity, protecting the planet and leaving no one behind. Water is proposed as the sixth goal of seventeen.
