Report from the Peoples General Assembly

Dear all,

 

Last Sept. 24, the Campaign for People’s Goals for Sustainable Development, IBON International, the Asia Pacific Women for Law and Development, the Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self-determination and Liberation, and the Women’s Environment and Development Organization successfully held the second People’s General Assembly (PGA) at First Presbyterian Church, New York. The first PGA was initiated last Sept. 21, 2013 at Foley Square Park, New York.


This year, over 110 participants from various civil society organizations, grassroots groups and individuals gathered to raise public awareness about the ongoing intergovernmental negotiations for a new UN development agenda; help build public pressure on governments around the need for a transformative, equitable, sustainable and just development; and strengthen global solidarity and collective strategies amongst people’s movements engaged in the struggle for development justice.

CPG response to OWG outcome document

Migration and the OWG Final Outcome Document

—————————————————————————————————————————————

 

Dear all,

As you all know by now the Intergovernmental Open Working Group      for Sustainable Development Goals officially released its final        report last July 28 containing proposed goals and targets   for the 2015-2030 period.
Please find attached the response of the Campaign for Peoples      Goals to this outcome document.  The paper examines the OWG’s      proposed goals and targets for sustainable development and the      emerging Post-2015 development agenda within the larger context of      current policy trends and strategies pursued by governments,      Washington-based international financial institutions, development      agencies, and the business sector  It concludes that      whatever lofty goals and targets are being proposed, they will not      be achieved as long as neoliberalism and the global capitalist      development model remains intact.
Thank you.

WATCH NOW! The Road to Development Justice

Inequality is now so high that a woman garment worker earns less in a year than  the Walton family earns every second. Climate change will force 50  million people to migrate from Bangladesh alone. The global crises of  inequality and climate are both caused by our global economy. Together  they threaten the future of humanity. It’s time for a new model – a  model of Development Justice. This video explains Development Justice  and the shifts civil society in the Global South demand. It makes the  case for why we need a new development model to address the double  crises of inequality and environmental collapse.

Estimado Paul
Hemos recibido la información  sobre respuesta de la Campaña por los Objetivos de los Pueblos ante el documento final del Grupo de Trabajo Abierto Intergubernamental de Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible.
A nivel de Nicaragua se ha socializado con organismos de cooperación y organizaciones interesadas en el tema. Espero que en el encuentro de Redes en Buenos Aires, Argentina en conjunto con Latindadd y ustedes se pueda avanzar en mayor divulgación e involucramiento.
Con atentos saludos
