Communication from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions:
This Communication addresses challenges of eradicating poverty and achieving sustainable development on a global level. The new universal framework needs to be transformational if it is to respond adequately to new challenges, including issues of global concern that were not sufficiently covered in the MDGs such as climate change, disaster resilience and risk management, inclusive and sustainable growth, inequalities, sustainable consumption and production, migration and mobility, decent work, digital inclusion, health and social protection, sustainable management of natural resources, and knowledge and innovation. This agenda needs to be fit to address our globalized and inter-linked world, since business as usual is no longer an option whether in terms of human dignity, equity, equality or sustainability. The EU and its Member States have emphasized their commitment to work inclusively with all partners and stakeholders to build consensus for a new transformative post-2015 agenda.
This Communication seeks to further elaborate key principles, to set out possible priority areas and potential target topics for the post-2015 framework, to propose options to cluster these priority areas and addresses the need for a new global partnership.
