Post-2015 Agenda

THP perspective: Given our unyielding commitment to the end of hunger, THP encourages the world community to adopt bold goals for the Post-2015 agenda – goals at least as bold as those proposed by the Secretary-General’s High-Level Panel (above) who call for ending hunger and extreme poverty by 2030.

A growing number of world leaders are setting targets consistent with this goal, including President Obama in his 2013 State of the Union Address and the new World Bank President Jim Kim.

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) adopted in 2000 had enormous impact on national policies. They were clear, concise, measurable and time-bound. The Post-2015 agenda should maintain these qualities, and address important gaps in the MDGs including stronger goals for gender, environmental sustainability and human rights.

The Secretary-General has created a globally inclusive process of on-line, expert and in-person consultations, and THP activists should use this opportunity to advance our advocacy agenda.
