2014/05/13 SDG's: Where do we stand so far ?

Poverty eradication is the greatest global challenge facing the world today and an indispensable requirement for sustainable development. We are therefore committed to freeing humanity from poverty and hunger as a matter of urgency.

We recognize that poverty eradication, changing unsustainable and promoting sustainable patterns of consumption and production and protecting and managing the natural resource base of economic and social development are the overarching objectives of and essential requirements for sustainable development.

Enter into a conversation with Maurice Strong, one of the most prominent Sustainable Development's "father"

"If the world succeeds in making a transition to truly sustainable development, all of us will owe no small debt of gratitude to Maurice Strong, whose prescience and dynamic presence on the International stage have played a key role in convincing governments and grassroots alike to embrace the principle - if not yet the practice - of adopting a new, long-term, custodial approach to the global environment." --- Kofi Annan former UN secretary General

SUSTAINEO 2030: Ou comment le futur peut nous apprendre à aller en direction d'un dévelopement viable

Le développement durable s'impose à nous comme LE grand challenge du 21ème siècle.

Les membres des Nations Unies et d'autres parties prenantes s'impliquent dans la définition de l'Agenda (du Développement Durable) Post-2015. Cela comprend la définition d'un certain nombre d'Objectifs Globaux destinés à remplacer les Objectifs du Millénaire (SDGs Sustainable Development Goals destinés à remplacer les Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)) d'ici fin 2015.

Sustaineo 2030 est un scénario que nous vous présentons afin d'explorer les structures de gouvernance qui pourraient nous servir de guides dans les domaines de la politique, les entreprises et la société. Sustaineo n'est pas un univers parallèle dans lequel la tachnologie et la société ont été totalement réinventés. Au contraire, c'est un scénario basé sur des expériences et situations réelles dans plus de 30 pays, qui ont été examinées dans l'étude globale que nous vous présentons ici sous forme de récit.

SUSTAINEO 2030: Learning Sustainable Development from the Future

Today we understand sustainable development to be the great challenge of the 21st century.

Member states of the United Nations and stakeholders globally are currently mobilizing to establish the Post-2015 Development Agenda. This includes developing a set of new global goals to succeed the Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs) once they expire at the end of 2015.

We present the Sustaineo 2030 scenario in order to explore which governance structures could ensure the mainstreaming of sustainable development as a guiding principle in politics, business and society. Sustaineo is not a parallel universe
in which technology and social systems have been invented entirely anew. On the contrary; it is based on actual experiences in real situations that have been examined as part of a global study and presented in the form of a narrative.

Partnerships, Corporate Social Responsibility and the New Development Agenda

The world of partnerships for development is evolving. The United Nations High-Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda has emphasized that the private sector and different partnership arrangements are critical components of the global development agenda because they bring different perspectives and successful models to the table. Specifically, the Panel argues that sustainability and accountability need to be built into corporate strategies in order to take advantage of commercial opportunities for growth.

2013/06/26: Swiss Position on a Framework for Sustainable Development Post-2015

In June 2012, on the occasion of the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, another mandate with similar aspirations was born: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

[...| the goals should address and incorporate in a balanced way all three dimensions of Sustainable Development (social, economic and environmental) and their inter-linkages, and be coherent with and inte-grated into the post-2015 UN development agenda.

Here's the Swiss Position regarding such a Framework for Sustainable Development Post-2015.
