11 Jul 2016 -  3rd Session - Discussion on “Ensuring that no one is left behind – Lifting people out of poverty and addressing basic needs”
In today’s world, billions of people continue to lack basic needs: food, water and energy as well as access to health services and education. Building the capacity to meet these basic needs will create jobs, economic opportunity and well-being while helping to ensure no one is left behind. The session will identify how meeting the basic needs of food, water and energy as well as access to health services and education can enable rapid social, economic and environmental progress. These objectives should be pursued in order to capitalize on potential synergies and reduce potential trade-offs.
