The report provides recommendations regarding the vision and shape of a Post-2015 development agenda to help respond to the global challenges of the 21st century, building on the Millennium Development Goals to end extreme poverty in all its forms. The report offers initial insight into how to build and sustain broad political consensus on an ambitious yet achievable post-2015 agenda, integrating the three dimensions of economic growth, social equality and environmental sustainability.

Evidence of impact and explanation of illustrative goals

Every day, poverty condemns 1 out of 7 people on the planet to a struggle to survive. Many of those living in extreme poverty are ignored, excluded from opportunities, sometimes for generations. Today, 1.2 billion people suffer under the hardship of living on less than the equivalent of $1.25 per person per day. This means that they can only buy the same amount of goods and services as $1.25 would buy in the United States. For more than a billion people, $1.25 a day is all there is to feed and clothe, to heal and educate, to build a future. We can be the first generation to eradicate this extreme poverty. This is a global minimum standard and must apply to everyone, regardless of gender, location, disability or social group.
