High Level Panel UN Report
This report outlines five transformational shifts, applicable to both developed and developing countries alike, including a new Global Partnership as the basis for a single, universal post-2015 agenda that will deliver a vision for the sake of humanity and provides an example of how new goals and measurable targets could be framed in the wake of these transformative shifts.
- The 13 years since the millennium have seen the fastest reduction in poverty in human history, there are half a billion fewer people living below an international poverty line of $1.25 a day.
- Child death rates have fallen by more than 30%, with about three million children’s lives saved each year compared to 2000.
- Deaths from malaria have fallen by one quarter. This unprecedented progress has been driven by a combination of economic growth, better policies, and the global commitment to the MDGs, which set out an inspirational rallying cry for the whole world.
