Today, 2.6 billion people lack basic sanitation facilities; more than 1 billion are hungry and more than 900 million do not have access to clean drinking water. Taking these figures and this context into consideration, the “Seoul Development Consensus for Shared Growth” (the Seoul Consensus) recognizes that, in a globalized world recovering from an economic crisis, a new paradigm for sustainable economic development is necessary, especially for low income countries. Private-sector participation will be a key factor in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
The B20’s contributions are fully in keeping with the Seoul action plan and its implementation. A better coordination of bilateral and multilateral policies for development, and the implementation of innovative solutions, are among the main goals that the B20 seeks to promote. Infrastructure and food security in developing countries will also feature as priority topics.
