"Building an environmental, economic, socially just future" – Speech by EU Commissioner Vella at the UN High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development

6 July 2015, New York – In his speech today, Commissioner Vella noted, "One of the major shifts of the Post-2015 agenda is its universality. All countries will have the responsibility to achieve the goals and targets domestically and to contribute to achieving them globally. This shared responsibility is fundamental.

But national ownership and leadership is equally vital for implementation. Governments and international organisations, such as the UN, have a particular role here."
