Post 2015: The ACORD Press Communique in response to the High Level Panel's report on the Post 2015 Development Agenda has been released!


Following the May 30 release of the High Level Panel's long awaited report, ACORD has responded by first and foremost congratulating the report for its commitment to end rather than reduce poverty, and its recognition of the importance of environmental sustainability and peace in doing so.

 "The HLP report provides a strong foundation for the post-2015 process to produce a fundamental shift in how we approach international development, especially evident in a vision that encompasses poverty eradication, environmental sustainability and peace. We hope this ambition and commitment to change is replicated by UN member states as they seek to agree on the new framework" -Ousainou Ngum, Executive Director, ACORD
