The Sustainable Development Goals are now in the process of being formulated. These goals will help focus global attention on the subjects identified, and their emphasis, for the next decade and a half at least.

This talk will focus on the issue of equity – why is it important and how the formulation of the SDGs can better reflect the dimensions of equity in global goals. What would such an emphasis add or take away from SDGs, if anything?
