  1. Some key points about “ ANEW GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP: ForSustainable Human Development through Eradicating Poverty and Transforming Economies” A synthesis of position papers prepared for Bangladesh People’s Forum for MDG (PFM) (8 July 2013) Manzoor Ahmed BRAC University and Campaign for Popular Education 12 December 2013, Bern

  2. Need for A Framework for visualizing post-2015 Development – the World We Want The Millennium Declaration of 2000 asserted every individual has the right to dignity, freedom, equality, a basic standard of living that includes freedom from hunger and violence. The MDGs were meant to operationalize the millennium vision by setting goals, targets and indicators. This has not quite happened. It is necessary to consider how the original intent of the Millennium Declaration was not served by MDG and ensure how this time an overarching framework binds together and provides the rationale for different specific goals and targets. The overarching framework also can guide the adoption of indicators and assessment methods and the adaptation of global goals to national and local contexts, which can make the outcomes meaningful to people’s life.

  3. Framework… Strongly voiced views exist for key elements in a framework for thinking about the post-2015 agenda. An overarching vision for development – the World We want – should put human capability enhancement at the centre. Human capability -- empowerment and agency of people -- to achieve human rights and human dignity for all can be the touchstone for post-MDG sectoral/thematic goals 2. A rights and equity perspective must subsume goals, targets, indicators and programmestrategies. 3. Quality, not just numbers, of the outputs and outcomes of programmes and services must be given attention. 4. An integrated and coordinated approach should be followed in pursuing the development agenda. 5. Setting the goals and targets is not enough . 6.Effective and accountable governance is essential. 7. Goals and targets must match resources 8.Remember - global goals are implemented through local action.

  4. Proposed goals, targets and indicators Proposed 12 goals of PFM relate to sectoral themes as well as creating the conditions for achieving the sectoral goals. Related targets and indicators are proposed keeping in view the Bangladesh context. By Year 20130 -- Goal 1: Extreme poverty, redefined as income below $2 (PPP) per person/day, will be eliminated with special attention to reduction of vulnerability of systematically deprived populations. Goal 2. Hunger and malnutrition will be eliminated Goal 3. All working age people will have “decent” work. Goal 4. All children up to age of prohibition of child labour (age 14)will complete compulsory education of acceptable quality Goal 5. All youth and adults will have opportunity to participate in lifelong learning related to livelihood, work, citizenship and personal fulfilment

  5. By year 2030… Goal 6. All children and adults, especially mothers, will have access to basic health care of acceptable quality. Goal 7. Women will have equal opportunity in work, citizenship and social roles and will be protected from all forms of gender related violence Goal 8. Reduce in major ways threats to sustainable development emanating from climate change. Goal 9 . Capacity will be built in science, technology, research and innovation to support the development agenda Goal 10 . Protection will be offered and vulnerability reduced of people in fragile states and states in conflict Goal 11 . Measures will be adopted in governance, devolution of public administration, partnership building and transparency to support the development agenda. Goal 12 . Development oriented commitment and synergy will be built at international and national levels to mobilise the resources to fulfil the global development agenda.

  6. Goal 4. All children up to age of prohibition of child labour (age 14)will complete compulsory education of acceptable quality Targets 4.1 All children from birth to transition into primary school participate in organised ECD programmes including preschool; 4.2 Acceptable quality with adequate provisions for primary/ post-primary education including teaching personnel ; 4.3 Completion of primary and post-primary education by all eligible children; 4.4 Major expansion of secondary education. Indicators (with urban-slums-rural, gender, income quintiles and disability breakdown as appropriate)

  7. Goal 5. All youth and adults will have opportunity to participate in lifelong learning related to livelihood, work, citizenship and personal fulfilment. Targets 5.1 Universal availability of learning centres, spaces, programmes, and learning technology networks; 5.2 Eighty percent of youth and adults participate in lifelong learning; 5.3 Assessed basic literacy competency achieved by all youth and adults and self-sustaining functional competency achieved by 80 percent of youth and adults. Indicators (with gender, income quintile and urban-urban slum-rural breakdown)

  8. Bangladesh “Gov/UN” Goals Goal 1: Secure economic growth that is inclusive, reduces poverty and inequality, creates sufficient numbers of decent jobs and is environmentally sustainable; Goal 2: Ensure sustainable food security and good nutrition; Goal 3: Reduce social inequality, particularly among marginalized groups and improve living conditions;  Goal 4:Achieve equality between women and men; Goal 5:Ensure health for all; Goal 6:Provide high quality basic education; Goal 7: Reduce social risks and vulnerabilities; Goal 8: Ensure inclusive environment and natural resources management that promotes sustainable eco-systems, development and green growth, livelihoods and health.

  9. Bangladesh Gov. Goals….. Goal 9: Reduce risk and build resilience todisasters and climate change with a focus on adaptation; Goal 10:Improve diversity of, and access to, clean and more efficient sources of energy; Goal 11: Improve accountability of public institutions for equitable public service provision for all communities; Goal 12: Ensure equal participation and effective representation of marginalized groups, thereby strengthening inclusive democratic governance; Goal 13: Strengthen rule of law, access to justice and promotion and protection of human rights. - Dhaka, 13 May 2013, United Nations in Bangladesh --------------- Education goals are weak. No mention of resources.

  10. “Official” education goal statement Goal 6: Provide high quality basic education Suggested targets: Specific segments of the population, particularly within the poor, minority ethnic groups, those in remote locations, and marginalized groups including people with disabilities and living with HIV still have to struggle for access and require their needs to be accommodated. Increasingly, however, a paradigm shift toward a preoccupation with quality, while retaining the focus on equity, has become an urgent necessity. -------- Civil Society challenge ahead: Continuing engagement in elaborating, adapting, and monitoring implementation of goals, targets and indicators in education and skills and capacity building, whatever the global formulation is.

  11. The Challenge of Rural Transformation In least developed countries, 45% of population and in developing countries one-third of people will still be rural residents in 2050. They add up to 3 billion people. The global and national challenges of fighting poverty and building the sustainable future cannot be met unless the problems facing the rural majority in the developing countries are effectively addressed. A vision of pro-active and positive process of change and development of rural communities in the context of national and global changes has specific education and skills development implications. This aspect has received little attention so far in the post-2015 devevlopment or education agenda.
