Addressing transnational threats
Building a common agenda
From 23-24 June 2014, a group of experts from East Africa, South Africa, China, India, Brazil, Turkey, and several European states took part in a seminar in The Hague on transnational threats and the post-2015 development agenda. Based on a variety of regional perspectives and areas of expertise, there was broad consensus on the need to step up global action to address these threats, including through the post-2015 framework. This seminar report outlines the key issues discussed and the suggestions made for possible targets on transnational threats to be included in the post-2015 framework.
Date: July 2014
Although targets on transnational threats have been included in several inputs to the post-2015 process... more discussion is needed in order to strengthen consensus and commitment among member states, to agree on specific target inclusion and to clarify how they will be measured.
