Governance for Sustainable Development- The Post-2015 Agenda
Source: article19.org

The Sustainable Development Goals, about to be adopted by the World's leaders, bring the opportunity to redefine the future and bring real, significant, transformative and universal change for and with the people, leaving no one behind. However, sustainable development will only become a reality if we have the enabling environment for it to happen.

This week, an e-book, 'Governance for Sustainable Development- the Post 2015 Agenda,' has been launched; the publication compiles the main elements of discussions had by governmental representatives, UN officials, several NGOs, experts and civil society during workshops on the post-2015 agenda, hosted by the Friends of Governance for Sustainable Development.

This e-book was prepared by ARTICLE 19 for the Friends of Governance for Sustainable Development through the Civic Space Initiative, implemented in partnership with the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL), CIVICUS; World Alliance for Citizen Participation, and the World Movement for Democracy.

We expect the present publication to be a useful resource in the context of the ongoing discussions about the institutional architecture for the Post-2015 Agenda.

The book's first chapter, 'The Role of the Right to Information in Sustainable Development' is written by ARTICLE 19's David Banisar: the right of public access to information held by government bodies empowers individuals and communities to be able to engage and participate in decisions that affect their fundamental human, social and economic rights relating to sustainable development. While it has been recognized since the Rio Declaration as important, it is crucial to include it as a key element in the Post-2015 agenda.
