8 Political balance of the 2030 Agenda The political balance of the Agenda can be smmarized as: Universal Ambition vs. National Ownership The Declaration defines the concept of national ownership as a conterweight to its niversality, which is reflected and reinforced throghot the entire Agenda: This is an Agenda of nprecedented scope and significance. It is accepted by all contries and is applicable to all, taking into accont different national realities, capacities and levels of development and respecting national policies and priorities (para 5)
9 Political balance of the 2030 Agenda National ownership means States are committed to implement the Agenda, bt only within their own nationally defined limits. Ths, States are permitted to prioritize and carry ot what they consider to be nationally acceptable. This balance is necessary becase the Agenda is a political commitment, not a legally binding docment.
10 Inclsion of persons with disabilities Persons with disabilities were not inclded in the Millennim Development Goals (MDGs) and conseqently exclded from many development initiatives and fnding streams. In contrast, the 2030 Agenda incldes persons with disabilities.
11 Comparing the MDGs and the 2030 Agenda Millennim Development Goals (MDGs) Adopted in 2000 and end in 2015 Focs on developing contries To redce extreme poverty 8 goals and 18 targets with 48 indicators No references to persons with disabilities 2030 Agenda Adopted in 2015 and end in 2030 Universal, applies to all contries To eradicate poverty in all its forms and and to realize economic empowerment throgh sstainable development 17 goals and 169 targets with 231 global indicators 7 references in SDGs: edcation (2), employment, redcing ineqalities, inclsive cities (2), disaggregation of data by disability (All together 11 in Agenda 2030 and 9 in global indicators)
12 Explicit references to Persons with Disabilities Persons with disabilities are referenced 11 times in the 2030 Agenda: Declaration 1. Hman rights (paragraph 19) 2. Vlnerable grops (paragraph 23) 3. Edcation (paragraph 25)
13 Explicit references to Persons with Disabilities Sstainable Development Goals and targets 4,5. Goal 4: edcation 2 References 6. Goal 8: employment 1 Reference 7. Goal 10: redcing ineqalities 1 Reference 8,9. Goal 11: inclsive cities 2 References 10. Goal 17: means of implementation, data 1 Reference Follow-p and review 11. Data disaggregation (paragraph 74, g)
14 References to vlnerable People who are vlnerable mst be empowered. Those whose needs are reflected in the Agenda inclde all children, yoth, persons with disabilities (of whom more than 80 per cent live in poverty) - paragraph 23 This paragraph is particlarly strong becase it calls for the empowerment of vlnerable people and places persons with disabilities at the centre of poverty eradication throghot the entire Agenda.
15 References to vlnerable Inclding persons with disabilities among vlnerable people means that whenever vlnerable is referenced throghot the Agenda (18 times), these provisions directly apply to persons with disabilities. The disability movement prefers the term at risk rather than vlnerable, bt vlnerable is more broadly accepted by governments at the UN. De to the political sensitivity of the 2030 Agenda negotiations it was not possible to change this term.
16 Other references to persons with disabilities 2030 Agenda references a nmber of UN docments that inclde references to persons with disabilities: Beijing Platform for Action has 24 references to persons with disabilities Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Redction has 5 references to persons with disabilities and an additional two references on niversal design SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway has 10 references to persons with disabilities

18 Preamble: Backgrond The Preamble to the 2030 Agenda contains a brief statement on its fndamental principles Before the final agreement, there were two draft versions of the Preamble: 1. a longer more explanatory version that wold have elaborated on the principles in line with the goals; the argments against this were the risks of dplication, misinterpretation or weakening of certain goals 2. a concise smmary; argment for this was that it wold be easier to nderstand, preserve the integrity of the goals, and shorten the docment The shorter version is in the final Agenda.
19 Preamble: The Five Ps The Preamble lists five fndamental principles: People: all hman beings can flfil their potential in dignity and eqality Planet: to protect the planet and its resorces from degradation for present and ftre generations Prosperity: all hman beings can enjoy prosperos and flfilling lives and that economic, social and technological progress occrs in harmony with natre Peace: foster peacefl, jst and inclsive societies which are free from fear and violence Partnership: 1. mobilize the means to implement 2. focs on the poorest and most vlnerable 3. with the participation of all contries, all stakeholders and all people

71 Follow-p and Review: Overview The Agenda s final chapter otlines its aims: 1. to track progress in implementation and 2. to ensre that no one is left behind The follow-p and review mechanism (paragraphs 47 & 77) is the litms test of the Agenda, it will only work with: Vision: robst, volntary, effective, participatory, transparent and integrated follow-p and review framework is realized Inclsive partnerships: effective international cooperation and exchanges of best practices and mtal learning The follow-p and review mechanism doesn't make States accontable bt once again ensres national ownership. However, as a political compromise, it does promote their accontability to their citizens, inclding persons with disabilities
72 Persons with Disabilities and Accontability Persons with disabilities were instrmental in creating this transformational roadmap to a better ftre. Now the hard work of real change lies directly ahead. Persons with disabilities mst be leaders, giding the world towards achieving these goals for everyone. This jorney demands or persistent and nwavering dty to hold or governments accontable to their own commitments. Or fll engagement in the follow-p and review mechanism is fndamental. We cannot afford to be left behind again. - Maryanne Diamond, Chair of the International Disability Alliance, 2015
73 Persons with Disabilities and Accontability The participation of persons with disabilities in the follow-p and review mechanism is critical and will serve as a litms test to whether the 2030 Agenda flfilled what the MDGs have failed for persons with disabilities Persons with disabilities mst engage with their governments and monitor that the 2030 Agenda is implemented for them and with them.
74 Follow-p and Review: Principles Volntary: National ownership and contry-led Robst: applies niversally across all contries and all three dimension of sstainable development (social, economic, environmental) Effective: aiming to identification of soltions and best practices and promote the coordination and effectiveness of the international development system Participatory: Be open, inclsive, participatory and transparent for all people Integrated: People-centred, gender-sensitive, respect hman rights + focs on the poorest, most vlnerable and those frthest behind Efficient: Bild on existing platforms and processes bild and respond to national circmstances, capacities, needs and priorities Data-driven: Based on evidence global indicators, enhanced capacity-bilding on data collection Mltilateral: Active spport of the United Nations system and other mltilateral instittions

78 High-Level Political Form (HLPF): Global Level Reason for establishing it: To improve and make a more effective instittional framework for sstainable development To promote synergies and coherence within the UN system To mandate the highest level of implementation monitoring To provide a form for open, transparent, participative and internationally comparable reviews and proposals (althogh not a legally binding accontability mechanism, the global level review provides opportnities for high profile attention)
79 HLPF: Roles 1. Facilitate sharing of experiences 2. Provide political leadership, gidance and recommendations 3. Promote system-wide coherence 4. Coordinate sstainable development policies 5. Assess progress, challenges and emerging isses
