RECOMMENDATIONS: Policy Recommendations for the Sustainable Development Goals Open Working Group Eight Session

Tuesday, February 18, 2014
High-level Task Force for International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD)

Conflict Prevention, Post-Conflict Peacebuilding, Promotion of Durable Peace, Rule of Law and Governance.

Inequality and poverty at all levels are drivers of conflict. Lack of development generates instability, conflict and violence. Countries affected by conflict, violence and insecurity face the greatest challenges in safeguarding the human rights and wellbeing of their people, eradicating poverty, promoting social equality, protecting the environment, and promoting sustainable development. Their special circumstances were not adequately addressed by the Millennium Development Goals, and they are furthest behind in achieving them—a major lesson learned for crafting the Sustainable Development Goals and the new Post-2015 Development Agenda.
