Making it happen: Technology, finance and statistics for sustainable development in Asia and the Pacific

This 2014/15 report, Making It Happen, assesses the state of progress on the MDGs, but then considers how we can move towards the SDGs. The report is based on a series of Asia-Pacific consultations with governments, civil society and academia. These meetings focused on “implementation” − on how we can embark on this new agenda and do so in an inclusive way that extends the benefits of development to the most marginalized groups and regions. For this purpose, the report zeroes in on three key issues. The first is technology.The second issue is finance. The third issue is statistics. Over the 15-year period of the MDGs, Asia and the Pacific became a driving force for the global economy and wider human progress. In the post-2015 era, this region has opportunity to steer its development towards a more sustainable and inclusive path and to ensure prosperous future for all.
