“A life of dignity for all” should be the common goal of world governments, says Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations in the report sent on Friday August 16 to the General Assembly of the UN.

In his report, Ban proposes as overarching objectives “Poverty eradication, inclusive growth targeting inequality, protecting and managing the natural resource base of our planet within a rights-based framework and cognizant of the nexus between peace and development “. This requires “economic shifts to sustainable patterns of production and consumption, effective governance and a renewed global partnership and means of implementation.”
