After hearing from Tony Pipa recently about the US take on the Post-2015 process, I sat down with David Hallam, UK Envoy for the Post-2015 Development Goals, to better understand the UK’s position on the recently agreed Global Goals.

What was the Envoy most pleased to see included in the Goals? Hallam emphasized that these goals are not only targeting developing countries or trying to boost global averages, but they truly are for everyone. For example, the issue of gender equality, he told me, is one that every country needs to work on, but incorporating those targets will look different for each country.
