The Open UN Working Group preparing the post-2015 development agenda has published its progress report. It gives a first idea of what the new 'development goals' might become.
At this moment, two remarks can be made:
- all or almost all expected items are mentioned, from poverty to hunger and essential services, through peace and human rights.
- for meeting these new development goals, the UN wants to work with 'partnerships'. This means the official and strengthened entry of transnational corporations within the UN. It could become a 'worthy' complement of the new rights TNC's are acquiring through investment treaties, such as TPP and TTIP ... what about States? what about democracy?
