Greater Asean cooperation needed to meet post 2015 development goals

Economic Planning Secretary Arsenio M. Balisacan said individual members of the Asean cannot achieve the SDGs on their own, as these goals also require cooperation in the region. “Given our respective resources and experiences, we are encouraged to make our discussions for strategic collaboration go beyond commerce and financial assistance,” Balisacan said. “The areas we may consider revisiting include regional disaster risk-reduction and management; social protection, technology access and transfer; data generation and management; and capacity, building of local institutions.”
