Private Sector Transparency and Post-2015

Save the Children recently published its proposed outline for the post-2015 replacement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This proposal, Ending Poverty in our Generation, focused on human development outcomes and ‘finishing the job’ of the existing framework, while incorporating environmental sustainability. In addition, it looked at key gaps in the MDGs, such as inequality, and proposed ways of addressing these.

One of the gaps to be closed in the new framework is to provide a way to harness more effectively the power of the private sector. The private sector is a key driver of development – creating jobs, innovating, providing products that meet development needs and paying taxes. Business activities obviously impact children, adults, and the environment in many ways, so it is important that they are clearly understood and the consequences shaped so they are as positive as possible. Through dialogue with corporations and other stakeholders, Save the Children is exploring the role of business in developing and advancing potential post-2015 development goals.
