Prove solidarity — A universal agendaAll countries need to commit to the new agenda and take action according to their context. Solidarity, with particular attention to the poorest, is a solid foundation for coherent action for the common good by all countries. In particular, developed countries need to prove their solidarity through delivering on existing commitments to development assistance and to create more space for mutual, equitable and productive engagement of developing countries in the development agenda, be it trade, debt and tax agreements or carbon space in our atmosphere.
Addressing inequalities — Reducing inequalitiesIncreasingly, addressing inequalities, be they rooted in economic , gender or other social marginalization of people on account of disability, ethnicity, beliefs or caste, is being recognised as central to ending poverty and securing peace and harmony in society. We believe that all women and men are equal in their worth. The vast disparities that obtain in relation to asset, income, opportunity and power between men and women and between any one social group and another are unacceptable.
Building on the achievements of the MDGs — A single, integrated agendaBuilding on the achievements of the Millennium Development Goals and ensuring that development is anchored on a genuinely global sustainability pathway, the future framework for development must reflect the integrated and inextricably linked social, economic, cultural and environmental dimensions of development. A set of goals that fail to integrate these dimensions in a balanced way is not acceptable for addressing present and future development challenges.
