PROGRAMME OF ACTION OF THE UN ICPD

Principle 15


Sustained economic growth, in the context of sustainable development, and social progress require that growth be broadly based, offering equal opportunities to all people. All countries should recognize their common but differentiated responsibilities. The developed countries acknowledge the responsibility that they bear in the international pursuit of sustainable development, and should continue to improve their efforts to promote sustained growth and to narrow imbalances in a manner that can benefit all countries, particularly the developing countries.
