The post-2015 global agenda for sustainable development is "on track", according to the Permanent Representative of Brazil to the UN.

Ambassador Antonio de Aguiar Patriota says he hopes Member States will adopt a series of targets this year, in addition to those approved in 2014.

The Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs will replace the anti-poverty goals or MDGs which expire at the end of 2015.

The new agenda is scheduled to be agreed upon next September during the UN's annual General Assembly debate.

Ambassador Patriota spoke to Monica Grayley about this issue as well as other important themes his country is working on.
