The Latin American and Caribbean region has a unique opportunity to exercise leadership and influence over the post-2015 development debate. The region’s countries have shown a commitment to the Millennium Development Goals by creating new approaches to achieving prosperity and delivering high standards of social welfare. Recently, the region has successfully captured the leadership positions at the UN in the lead-up to the 69th General Assembly, allowing it to advance its innovative development policies and models within the debate and lobby for its concerns.
A Laboratory for Sustainable Development?, written by David Steven and Alejandra Kubitschek-Bujones discusses the opportunities and obstacles to agreeing on a post-2015 agenda that will benefit the region and explores ways in which regional players might influence the agenda.
