Proposal : CIVIL SOCIETY DEMANDS FOR THE POST-2015 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA: Synthesis of Post 2015 National Deliberations in 10 Asian Countries


Summary : Since September 2012, Beyond 2015, the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) and the International Forum of National NGO Platforms (IFP) have been convening national, regional, and community civil society deliberations in 40 countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia to emerge a common position around the post 2015 agenda and voice key concerns and recommendations. The post-2015 conversation is taking place at a moment of multiple crises and instability globally. In this context, it is critical that the voices of those most affected and marginalized are placed at the center of the dialogue. The national deliberations have tried to gather the concerns of the poorest and most vulnerable. This report synthesizes the outcomes of national deliberations in 10 Asian countries covering Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Korea, Japan and China.

Goal : Peace and Security


Targets and Indicators:
  • Personal security comes first, and if the governments are unable to guarantee personal security, then nothing can be achieved. Therefore, issues of human and personal security should be made part of the framework.
  • Agrarian disputes, domestic conflict incited by discriminatory policies, radicalism, segregation, exclusivism and conflict situations that emerge post-disaster and relocation are increasingly commonplace in most countries in Asia. Viable solutions are therefore of utmost importance to minimize conflict at all levels.
  • In addition, given the presence of countries with nuclear capabilities in the region, utmost effort is required to ensure denuclearization and international disarmament negotiation to ease political tensions in the region.

Goal : Climate Change and Sustainable Development


Targets and Indicators:
  • Need to put into place enablers that shield local populations from the harmful effects of climate change, and development policies that respect the rights of the people – including indigenous communities and that companies respect the welfare of local communities.
  • Developed countries should commit to obligatory, additional, non-debt creating public finance to cover the full cost of adaptations to climate change.
  • Governments and international agencies should also develop appropriate mechanisms to prevent disasters and develop resilience strategies.
  • The responses to water shortages/scarcity need to be emphasized especially in context of the dependence on agriculture in most Asian countries.
  • Growing and changing populations and impending food security challenges must be interlinked and addressed in the new framework.
  • The framework should restructure production and consumption patterns in both advanced and developing countries in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
