Universality in the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Agenda : UNEP Post 2015 Note 9
United Nations Environment Programme, United Nations Human Rights

The UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights were amongst the first international agreements to frame the notion of \"universality\". Since then the term has been used in various fora and processes, for example in the context of common principles and standards, of global public goods, and in the notion of leaving no one behind. Sustainable development is a universal aspiration, requiring international cooperation and joint responsibility for a greater common good.

Sustainable consumption and production indicators for the future SDGs : UNEP discussion paper, March 2015
United Nations Environment Programme

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the development of an integrated, science-­‐based set of indicators to monitor progress towards SCP patterns which supports the achievement of the SDGs. An effort is made to identify indicators which can be applied to measure more than one target, and which contribute to making them transformative by building inter-­‐linkages and complementarities between the targets and the goals which they underpin. The report also attempts to show that the use of positive indicators can help illustrate the return on investment in SCP. Wherever possible, positive indicators were selected in preference to others, to highlight benefits from SCP and to show that such progress could be the starter of virtuous circles of action.

Policy Coherence of the Sustainable Development Goals: A Natural Resource Perspective
United Nations Environment Programme

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) aim, by 2030, to end human deprivation worldwide. They represent a coherent, collective vision of a better future for all and provide a framework by which progress towards this vision may be monitored. One of the great strengths of the SDG framework in its current formulation is its recognition of the intimate links between human well-being, economic prosperity and a healthy environment. In its adoption, it must send out a clear message that restoring and maintaining the health of the natural resource base is a necessary condition for eradicating poverty and sustaining economic progress for all.
