Nepal wants concerted efforts for sustainable development goals

Sep 28 2013, 9:36pm CDT | by IANS

United Nations, Sep 29 (IANS) Nepal has called upon all UN member states to direct concerted efforts to complete the unfinished tasks of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) before embarking on the subsequent sustainable development goals.

United Nations, Sep 29 — Nepal has called upon all UN member states to direct concerted efforts to complete the unfinished tasks of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) before embarking on the subsequent sustainable development goals.

Khil Raj Regmi, chairman of Nepalese Council of Ministers, made the statement while addressing the annual high-level debate of the UN General Assembly, which entered its fifth day here Saturday, Xinhua reported.

"There is a need to build on the foundation of the MDGs, leaving nobody behind in the global development efforts," he said. "Any new development agenda that does not keep the elimination of extreme poverty at the center stage loses the spirit of sustainability."

The 193-member General Assembly has asked all the UN member states to set the stage for the post-2015 development agenda, which will be hammered out next year to define the global development in 2015 and beyond.

"It is an irony that one eighth of world population has to live without enough food at a time when 150 percent of the earth's annual regenerative capacity is being consumed in total," he said. "Nearly one billion people will still be forced to live in extreme poverty by 2015."

"Looking at this unfair and unjust scenario, one can hardly envision global sustainability without a system of an economic growth and development that ensures the progress and wellbeing of people on this planet in an equitable, inclusive and judicious manner," he said.

"We can hardly realise sustainable development when pervasive poverty, unsustainable consumption and production patters and spiraling environmental degradation are allowed to continue," he added.
