2015 Development Summits Aim To Eradicate Extreme Poverty, Address Inequality, Climate Stability
The Guardian: This year’s development summits have many mountains to climb
Kevin Watkins, director of the Overseas Development Institute
“Welcome to the mother of all years for summits on international development. … The central goal of the summits is to chart a course towards the eradication of extreme poverty, more equitable globalization, and climate stability. … Achieving a successful outcome in 2015 will not be easy. We do not live in the best of times for international cooperation. Yet the summits provide an opportunity to build the coalitions needed to address some of the defining challenge of our day — and to restore the credibility of multilateralism” (1/20).
