Highlights for Friday, 8 March 2013
ECLACThe Conference on Sustainable Development in Latin America and the Caribbean: Follow-up to the development agenda beyond 2015 and Rio+20 resumed on Friday, 8 March 2013, at the Crowne Plaza Tequendama Hotel in Bogota, Colombia. In the morning, in honor of International Women’s Day, Amina J. Mohammed, Special Advisor to the Secretary-General on Post-2015 Development Planning, conveyed a message from UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who highlighted violence against women and girls who are gang raped, commit suicide out of shame and are shot at close range for daring to seek an education. She urged converting our outrage into action, and noted efforts in peacemaking and peace building activities to combat sexual violence against women in conflict situations. She said all women and girls have the fundamental human right to live free of violence.

In the morning session, Chair Patti Londoño, Colombian Vice-Minister for Multilateral Affairs, asked participants to focus the day's discussions on regional priorities that could be taken to the global level. Underscoring consensus that the MDGs should be maintained, she asked how the MDGs can be continued, noting a spectrum of visions regarding how and when, and for ideas on means of implementation beyond ODA. Participants then continued discussions on a post-2015 development agenda.

In the afternoon, participants addressed Caribbean prospects and preparation for the Third Global Conference on the Sustainable Development of SIDS (2014). George Talbot, Permanent Representative of Guyana to the UN, discussed some of the outcomes of the Caribbean Forum.

The session will resume on Saturday morning.
