Sustainable development in Asia Pacific

Amid these debates, it is vital that we keep in view the prerequisites for sustainable development. Maintaining quality, robust, sustained and inclusive economic growth is critical as we adopt the new sustainable development agenda.

Deliberations about the specific sustainable development goals to be adopted must be reinforced by sound global economic governance and focused domestic policy frameworks, improving the inclusiveness of growth to advance the economic, environmental and social welfare of our people and the planet.

The benefits of growth have to be more widely distributed, because inclusive growth is the cornerstone of sustainable development. Mainstreaming sustainability considerations in policymaking will, in turn, support inclusivity.
