- The attainment of positive, sustainable peace depends on addressing drivers of violence and developing institutions and approaches that will foster a more peaceful society.
- Participants identified among other gaps in the MDG framework the critical absence of natural resources management and governance and the impact and role of women, girls and youth on development.
- Shared recognition that achieving peace is a multidimensional endeavor and agreement with the United Nations Task Team report that peace can no longer be separated from the world’s development framework.
- The participants welcomed the progressive development of the New Deal and the Peace building and State building goals by the g7+ and believed the post-2015 framework should be informed by these concepts in crafting commitments that would address conflicts in fragile states.
