Environment, Climate Change and the MDGs: Reshaping the Development Agenda

Posted on 23 September 2008. Filed under: MDGs |

On 25 September 2008, the UN Secretary-General and the President of the General Assembly will jointly convene the High-level Event on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) at UN Headquarters in New York. While significant progress has been made in some areas, scaled-up efforts by all stakeholders are urgently needed in order to meet the Goals by the 2015 target date. The High-level Event will bring together Heads of State or Government, as well as leaders of the private sector and civil society to review progress, identify key gaps and priority needs, and to renew national and global commitments to achieve the MDGs.

With the aim of ensuring that the High-level Event gives adequate priority to the critical role of improved environmental management in efforts to achieve the MDGs, the Poverty-Environment Partnership (PEP) will host a policy dialogue on Environment, Climate Change and the MDGs: Reshaping the Development Agenda.

The event will highlight progress on major 2005 commitments, including the UNDP-UNEP Poverty-Environment Initiative and the Coalition for Rainforest Nations. Achievements and lessons learned from these initiatives will provide world leaders with concrete evidence that investment in sound and equitable environmental management makes real economic sense and is critical to expanding opportunities for people in developing countries to lift themselves out of poverty.
