On May 30 2013, High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, which was created by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to suggest bold goals for the post-2015 development agenda, launched its report, A New Global Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies Through Sustainable Development. The HLP states, “Our vision and our responsibility are to end extreme poverty in all its forms in the context of sustainable development and to have in place building blocks of sustained prosperity for all”.
