CIDSE Response to the Progress Report of the UN General Assembly Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals (A/76/941), November 2013
Bringing in our experience from the ground and our perspective as a faith-based organization, the CIDSE response to the progress report of the UN OWG on SDGs is a critical appraisal of the report, specifically looking at:
1. The linkages between the human rights framework and the SDGs and post-2015 framework
2. The conceptualization of poverty from a human rights based approach
3. The conceptualization of sustainability from a human rights based approach
4. The attention to “process” issues such as participation and accountability in the report.
