Mozambique calls for inclusive development agenda with ‘shared responsibility’
In his address to the UN General Assembly, Armando Emilio Guebuza, president of Mozambique, said that the development agenda should be based on principles of inclusion, national ownership, ‘and shared responsibility among the development partners in its implementation.’
The debate in the UNGA is excepted to set the stage for the post-2015 development agenda, which is designed to define global development after 2015, the deadline to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Armando Emilio Guebuza also said that ‘In carrying out this agenda, it is important that we extirpate from our vocabulary and from our attitude the dichotomy that attempts to group the members of the United Nations family.’
