Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has been presented with a report by a panel of eminent persons appointed to come up with recommendations on a bold, yet practical post-2015 development agenda.

The Secretary-General described the report as "a crucial input for the international community as it works to develop a new framework to succeed the Millennium Development Goals in the next two years".

John Podesta, Chairman of the Centre for American progress is one of the panellists. He told reporters they believe that change will be driven by five transformative shifts.

” First, to leave no one behind; Second to put in place sustainable development at the core, we have to act now to deal with climate change and environmental degradation; third to transform economies for jobs and create mechanisms for inclusive growth; fourth to build peace and effective and open accountable institutions for all. “

Mr. Podesta also pointed out that freedom from fear is the most fundamental human right and that must be put at the core of the post-2015 agenda.

The fifth shift, he says, is to forge a new global partnership – one that's built on a spirit of solidarity, cooperation and mutual accountability.
