Our approach… should be universally applicable while at the same time implementable at the national, sub-national, community and individual levels… strengthen global governance…. all development actors effectively support the post-2015 development agenda…. Enhanced and scaled up models of cooperation… at the global, regional, national, and sub-national levels…

Our people-centered and planet-sensitive post-2015 agenda will need to be grounded in a commitment to address global environmental challenges…. promoting global cooperation in line with each country’s level of capacity and responsibility to act…. There should also be changed behavior in this regard in all countries in order to make more efficient use of environmental assets and resources. ..

We agreed that a post-2015 agenda should clearly specify the means of implementation… Ownership at all levels…North-South, South-South and triangular cooperation….Enhanced knowledge sharing, capacity building… will also be key.

…Stronger monitoring and evaluation at all levels, and in all processes of development ….will help guide decision making, update priorities and ensure accountability. … registry of commitments… to ensure accountability….
