Eradicating poverty through environmentally resilient development: the way forward post-2015



15 March, 2013


Climate change, natural disasters, ecosystem decline and biodiversity loss present huge risks to sustainable development and poverty eradication, especially for the world’s poorest who depend on the natural environment for their survival. The UN post-2015 development agenda provides an opportunity to ensure that all countries are set on a development path that guarantees a sustainable future for all.

In this joint paper, written with Christian Aid, Greenpeace, RSPB and WWF under our NGO engagement theme, we set out four tests for environmental resilience, which we believe are essential for the post-2015 development framework to eradicate poverty and deliver long term sustainable development.
