Towards a New GCAP – May 2016 Tuesday May 3rd, 2016
Dear GCAP friends and activists,
We are delighted to present you our new publication, which is based on experiences in Bangladesh, DR Congo, Nicaragua and Zambia.
Learning from the MDGs for the Sustainable Development Agenda
As world leaders have endorsed a Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – and largely declared its predecessor, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), to be a success – it’s imperative to understand the extent to which the MDGs did and did not eradicate poverty in the Global South.
A frank assessment of the past fifteen years, based on grassroots analysis and inputs from the most vulnerable and marginalised communities is essential if the world is going to be able to realise the SDGs and truly ensure a Life of Dignity for All.
