PDF File Size: 387 KB | Download   
The United Nations Summit on Sustainable Development 2015 garnered visibility, political support and impetus for a truly transformative 2030 Agenda and its implementation. The very large number of Heads of State or Government as well as high-level leaders from business and civil society who participated is evidence of the enthusiasm generated by this new Agenda. The sense of achievement was reinforced by the address by His Holiness Pope Francis prior to the opening plenary. Over 200 speakers addressed the high-level plenary session of the Summit, including the Co-Chairs of the Summit, Heads of State and Government, other high-level representatives of Member States, the United Nations Secretary General, and representatives from international organizations, business sector and civil society. Large numbers also contributed actively to the in-depth discussions on the issues addressed in the interactive dialogues. The engagement of stakeholders, including through partnership, was highly emphasised and over fifty partnership events were held during the Summit. The participation of development partners, including civil society organisations and the private sector, in the preparation of the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda has been unprecedented. In order to fully achieve the Agenda, it will be necessary to continue to be inclusive, bringing together stakeholders everywhere to be engaged in the Agenda’s implementation. Speakers at the Summit welcomed the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They reflected on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and outlined the impressive international and national achievements in implementing them, yet noted that progress has been uneven and there remains unfinished business. The SDGs were recognised as more comprehensive and complex and a springboard for continued progress.
