10:00 AM (CR.6, NLB) Roundtable on Constructing the Post-2015 development agenda: The rule of law as a driver on inclusive development opportunities.
The Opening Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (OWG) has been tasked with the preparation of a proposal on sustainable development goals (SDGs) which should, among other things, be aspirational, global in nature and universally applicable to all countries. By bringing together different stakeholders, the Roundtable will seek to inform the debate, in advance of the OWG’s deliberations, on how integrating the rule of law into the new development agenda can make a crucial contribution towards a development path that is both more equitable and more sustainable, and produce significant benefits equally for governments, communities and individuals.
Organized by The International Development Law Organization (IDLO) with the Rule of Law Unit in the Executive Office of the Secretary-General (EOSG) and the support of the Government of Finland.
