Trillions needed for new development agenda


Trillions of dollars may be needed to finance a new global development agenda, a senior UN official has said.

In September, the international community is due to meet in New York to decide on the so-called Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs.

They will replace the Millennium Development Goals which are due to expire at the end of this year.

Priscilla Lecomte has been speaking to the head of the UN’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA), Wu Hongbo.

She began by asking Mr Wu how much money is needed to make the SDGs a reality.
