New Development Framework Should Tackle Inequality, Climate Change

Inter Press Service: Op-Ed: Overcoming the Twin Hurdles of Inequality and Climate Change
Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International

“…Laudable progress has been made under the MDGs, which are set to expire next year. … Yet the twin challenges of inequality and climate change have not been adequately tackled. … If we get it right, a bold new framework for global development next year, together with agreement at the U.N. climate talks in Paris, could provide the impetus for a transition to a more equal world — a world without the scourge of poverty and climate change. This would transform millions of lives. So let us embrace the new beginning the Sustainable Development Goals offer” (6/17).
