Goal Setting and Implementation for Post 2015 Development Agenda:
Asian Perspectives on Linking Sustainable Development and Post MDGs
Asia is a diverse region with the least developed, emerging and advanced countries coexisting in close proximity with varying needs and policy priorities. Asia is also home to over half of the world’s population, and the rapid economic advance of Asian countries means that the future of sustainable development will depend on Asia, and the 21st century may well be called ‘the Asian century’ in that regard. In this session, panelists discussed scenarios for global goals for the Post 2015 Development Agenda to link sustainable development and Post MDGs sin the Asian context, including case studies relating to national development goals, targets, and experiences with implementation of existing goals and targets. The session highlighted lessons specific to the Asia-Pacific context that could be used to inform the related global process on goal-setting and implementation.
