Building more inclusive sustainable and prosperous societies in Europe and Central Asia
Lifting people out of poverty in ways that respect the planet's ecological boundaries and advance social inclusion is one of the most urgent global challenges of the twenty-first century. Seeking ways to meet this challenge, the world has high expectations for the United Nations post-2015 development agenda. Against this global backdrop of the post-2015 world, every country in Europe and Central Asia is struggling to reconcile economic and social progress with environmental sustainability. This advocacy document 1 develops a vision to address those challenges and inform the global community about the development lessons emanating from this region.
