UN to focus more on environment awareness

United Nations, UN's Post-2015 Development Agenda will focus more on environmental protection programmes, a media report said Monday.

UN Special Advisor to the Executive Director on Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Maryam Niamir-Fuller Sunday said that this move will ensure that global development efforts do not degrade the environment, Xinhua reported.

The Post-2015 Development Agenda refers to a process which aims to define the global development framework that will succeed the UN Millennium Development Goals, a set of eight global development targets which will end in 2015.

"All nations are now aware that environmental protection will not slow down economic progress," Niamir-fuller said, adding that the SDGs will be put into action next year and will provide the framework that will shape the global agenda for the next 15 years.
