Masood Khan urges renewed global partnership to achieve development targets PDF Print E-mail
NEW YORK, June 8 (APP): Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Masood Khan, has called for renewed global partnership in a bid to eradicate extreme poverty and achieve sustainability and equality for all through the new post-2015 development agenda. “Global commitment is needed to support developing countries in implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MGDs), he said, referring to the eight targets agreed by world leaders in 2000 to improve people’s lives around the world. The Pakistani envoy was delivering the keynote address at retreat held on Friday afternoon at Tarrytown, a northern suburb of New York City, to review “The Post-2015 Development Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”. 
Ambassador Joy Ogwu, Nigeria’s permanent representative to the U.N., presided over the session attended by a large and distinguished audience. A report, compiled by a High-Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which outlines a new framework to build on the MDGs, was delivered to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon last week by Panel co-Chair Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono on behalf of his fellow co-Chairs, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and British Prime Minister David Cameron.
In the report, the 27-member Panel calls for the new post-2015 goals to drive five major transformational shifts: move from “reducing” to ending extreme poverty, leaving no one behind; putting sustainable development at the core of the development agenda; transforming economies to drive inclusive growth; building accountable institutions, open to all, that will ensure good governance and peaceful societies; and forging a new global partnership based on cooperation, equity and human rights.
“To get to the world we want “one with no poverty, hunger and suffering and one with a healthy planet “ we’ll need more effective institutions, including a stronger Economic and Social Council,” Ambassador Masood Khan, who is also Vice President of ECOSOC, said.
ECOSOC, the economic arm of the United Nations, he said, had taken steps in recent years towards greater efficiency and effectiveness. “Long recognized for its unmatched inclusiveness, the Council is also putting its abundant store of good will to better use,” the Pakistani envoy said. “For example, we’re forging closer ties with the trade and financial institutions and intensifying our dialogue with them throughout the year. “We are becoming more innovative; and we are promoting broader engagement... ECOSOC is also scaling up its outreach to the private sector, such as through our recent Partnership Event,” he added, referring to some of the activities of the 54-member body.
Masood Khan said, “The world is counting on the UN to deliver, to be a catalytic force and to set the direction for the road ahead. This means that we have to work with the Millennium Development Goals not yet achieved and at the same time look beyond 2015 and the new sustainable development agenda. “Let us work together to demonstrate that the UN can deliver on the present MDGs and on sustainable development “ in Africa, yes, as well as throughout the whole world.”
