Vulnerable Countries within the Post 2015 Agenda

It is now apparent that the Post 2015 Development Agenda will be designed universally and will incorporate two sets of objectives, namely the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is clearly in this spirit that the report of the High Level Panel appointed by the UN Secretary-General was written. This dual orientation should however recognize the special and unique challenges of the world’s most vulnerable countries. The Post 2015 Development Agenda must find its legitimacy and consistency by taking into account the needs of these countries.
