Pres. Sirleaf Names 3 Critical Factors For Global Success

MONROVIA, June 13 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has observed that the three requirements advanced prominently in the negotiations on the new development agenda are critical for the success of the global endeavor.

In a speech delivered at the close of a summit in Johannesburg, South Africa President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, who is Chair of the High Level Committee on the Post 2015 Development Agenda, named the three goals as finance, technology and capacity-building. 

She said as Africa has fully embraced the SDGs which incorporate “substantially many of our aspirations, we must prepare our countries to assume the responsibilities which will follow the adoption of these goals.”

“In addition to effective policies which must be put in place and institutions to be strengthened, it is imperative to build capacity at the national level to develop indicators according to the circumstances of each country to measure progress in the implementation of programs that will be launched,” the Liberian leader noted. 

President Sirleaf observed that the global community is hard at work in developing the tools to measure progress at the global level, therefore Africa must do the same expeditiously at the regional level and African countries must follow suit at the national level, with clear roadmaps and work plans.

“We have come to the conclusion of a very fruitful deliberation on the informative report from our representatives in New York on developments in the inter-governmental negotiation processes relating to the Post 2015 Development Agenda and the Third International Conference on Financing for Development,” she said.

The Liberian leader stressed that “we have gained deep insights into the achievements, but also challenges that persist.”

She thanked members of the committee for their active participation in the exchange of views on the Report.
