On 30 May 2013, Ban Ki-moon, the United Nations’ Secretary-General, received a landmark report from the High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Established by the Secretary-General in 2012, the 27-member Panel is co-chaired by Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, and United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron.

The report outlines a universal agenda to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030 and deliver on the promise of sustainable development.

The report calls for “a fundamental shift – to recognize peace and good governance as a core element of wellbeing, not an optional extra” and proposes that transparent and accountable governance be one of five cornerstones in the mission to end world poverty and reduce inequality.
