Mr. President,Mr. Secretary GeneralDistinguished Co-chairs (President Museveni and Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen)Excellencies Heads of State and GovernmentDelegates Ladies and GentlemenOur new global development agenda, “Transforming Our World, “The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” is the result of the most consultative process in history. Consultations and negotiations spanned many years, starting with the 2010 Millennium Development Goals Summit and proceeding to the 2012 Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development, which crafted a vision of the future we want. Our sustainable development goals and targets were formulated following protracted negotiations in 2013 and 2014. This year’s negotiations culminated in the consensus document which we adopted this morning. I commend member states, regional groupings, civil society organizations, private sector actors, and all stakeholders who worked tirelessly to create this new framework. Given the complex nature of the intergovernmental negotiations, we offer deserving commendation to outgoing President of the General Assembly and the Co-Facilitators, the Permanent Representatives of Kenya and Ireland who skillfully navigated the process.We pay tribute to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for his leadership in guiding the process. I was honored in 2013 to serve, along with Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom and President Susilu Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia as one of the three co-chairs of the Secretary-General’s High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Agenda. We worked with 27 panelists from around the world to set the vision and policy framework for a bold, strategic and universal agenda. The membership of the Panel comprised representatives from every segment of society, including governments, academia, civil society organizations and the private sector. Fifteen (15) years ago the MDGs were launched with a vision to build a better world. At the Millennium Summit in September 2000, we set time-bound targets to address critical challenges confronting.The world has made significant progress in achieving many of the MDG targets. Average overall incomes have increased, extreme poverty has declined, child mortality rates have fallen, life expectancy has risen and more people in the developing world have access to improved sanitation services. But progress has been far from uniform across the world-or across the Goals. There remain huge gaps across and within countries. Poverty remains the greatest challenge especially in rural areas, though urban poverty is also extensive, growing, and underreported by traditional indicators. We are grateful that the new development agenda calls our attention to the unfinished business of the MDGs while broadening the vision to incorporate new challenges. This is why every segment of the global community contributed to making this agenda a reality. In Africa, a High-Level Committee was established by the African Union in 2013, which I was honoured to chair. The Committee launched a consultative process culminating in the adoption of a Common African Position reflecting the priorities of our continent. I am very pleased to acknowledge today, that our priorities are substantially integrated into both the 2015 agenda and the Addis Ababa Action Agenda. Together these documents demand a universal commitment to the share vision of eradicating poverty and hunger, safeguarding our planet and opening the doors to prosperity for the benefit of people everywhere. Peaceful Societies and the revitalized global partnership are essential requirements for the achievement of these aspirations.Excellencies,We must pursue single mindedly achievement of the goals enshrine in this agenda. It can be done. Our world has never been richer, more integrated and better educated than now. Therefore, with the resources at our disposal, and the creative power of all, especially those left in the margins of progress – women and youth, we will achieve success. Dignity for all, peaceful societies all around the globe, providing every human being with the means to live to his or her full potentials are well within our means. We cannot afford to fail. And we must truly leave no one behind.The Addis Ababa Action Agenda provides the toolkit for countries, especially poor and post-conflict countries to galvanize the needed resources to implement the new global agenda. It challenges all of us to take concrete measures that will transform our commitments into practical solutions that improve the lives of our people. Base on this common framework, with sustainability at its core, we will move forward in crafting national development policies and strategies, but with the recognition that while the goals and targets are universal in nature, every country will have to develop its own priorities towards the achievements of the global ambition of a new world of peace, prosperity and dignity in a safe planet.The post-2015 development agenda, giving its scope and level of ambition will require more effective, strengthened and improved modes of development cooperation to support its implementation. We call for a renewed and revitalized global partnership amongst nations, underpinned by North-South, South-South and triangular cooperation with specific attention on fair trade, taxation and technology, while combating illicit financial flows and terrorism. At the core of our actions, we must confirm commitment to transparency, accountability and mutual respect. These are the fundamentals of genuine partnership.Excellencies,The successful implementation of the 2030 Development Agenda will depend largely on the concrete measures taken at the sub-national, national, regional and global levels. We must craft ambitious national responses towards implementation of the Agenda. We must set in motion national processes that will guide member states’ efforts to integrate and domesticate the new Agenda into local content that will engender national ownership in the implementation process. Strong follow-up and review mechanism will enhance an effective implementation process where citizens have the means to assess their countries progress in implementation. We must also embark on a data revolution, geared towards developing capacities for development planning, monitoring and evaluation.Finally, as we made history today by adopting the 2030 Development Agenda to replace the Millennium Development Goals. In so doing, we have assumed a challenge and responsibility to deliver to the future generation, in the next 15 years, a world free of poverty and hunger and a more secure planet for everyone. This must be our legacy.I thank you.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
SANTA CLARITA – A 19-year-old Valencia man died Sunday after he fell off a freeway overpass while trying to avoid an oncoming car after he had exited his vehicle following a crash, authorities said. California Highway Patrol officers found the body of David Hairston III at 4:50 a.m., about 25 minutes after his Ford Escort collided with a Honda Civic on a rain-soaked northbound Interstate 5 at Gavin Canyon Road. Hairston and a 49-year-old Reseda man had collided, and their vehicles remained in the freeway lanes, police said. Hairston’s vehicle was sideways. Soon after, Phoebe Wong, 55, of Valencia was headed toward the scene and apparently could not see Hairston’s car and hit it, police said. Hairston, who was out of his car, jumped onto the overpass to avoid getting hit by Wong. He then slipped in the wet conditions and fell onto The Old Road below, according to a CHP accident report. Nobody else was seriously injured. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week On a recent visit, it sat grounded as the crew focused on another corner of the massive stage, where Martin Sheen was performing a scene as the president in a lavish hall bedecked with fresh bouquets. The 747 has been busy. It’s an election year on the show, and the set has been doing triple duty as President Bartlet’s jet and as campaign planes for presidential contenders played by Jimmy Smits and Alan Alda. Posters touting Democratic nominee Rep. Matthew Santos (Smits) as “The Real Deal” shares press cabin wall space with political cartoons and other campaign memorabilia. But step behind a door embossed with the presidential seal, and the cloth seats and red-and-blue motifs of the rugged campaign plane give way to the rich wood paneling, broad leather loungers and roman blinds of Air Force One. “We had to plain it down a little bit to make it more like a charter plane that a large presidential campaign would have,” series producer Michael Hissrich said. The conversion took about two weeks. “It’s basically first-class or business-class seating (on Air Force One),” Hardy said. “For the campaign plane, it’s more coach seating. There are not many overhead bins on Air Force One.” It wasn’t always first class for this Hollywood player. Before the show’s creators discovered the 747 interior alongside sets from “The American President,” the 1995 Rob Reiner film was scripted by “West Wing” creator Aaron Sorkin, it appeared in such plane-in-peril thrillers as 1997’s “Turbulence,” Hardy said. “We noticed this 747 interior sort of flying around up there,” he said. “That inspired us. If we ever needed Air Force One, we can use that.” The set debuted in the first season episode “20 Hours in L.A.,” when Sorkin took President Bartlet and his staff on a fundraising swing through Los Angeles. “We needed a set to get them out there,” Hardy said “We just built the press section and a couple of senior staff cabins. Over the years, we’ve added to it – we have the president’s private quarters, the conference room and the president’s office.” Set designers rely on both public drawings and photos from former White House insiders for accuracy. Both Hissrich and Hardy have visited a real Air Force One. “You have that eerie feeling that you’ve been here before,” said Hissrich, recalling a trip onboard former President Bill Clinton’s jet. “You have all the right parts. Some of it is just offset here and there.” Six set artists ensure the 747 is always camera-ready – right down to the presidential seals adorning the planes’ intercoms. “When it’s fully ‘dressed’ and fully working, there could be 150 to 170 in that space at any given time with the crew and the background artists,” Hissrich said. “It gets a little worn, but the maintenance our set department does is amazing.” Hardy said there’s more work ahead, now with an actual presidential jet just a half-hour drive away. “I’m planning to take my crew up there for a field trip as soon as we have a spare moment – to see what we can learn,” he said. “You can’t do a show like this for as long as we have and not be oversensitive to any sort of presidential history and artifacts,” Hissrich said. “To have such a significant piece of history and such a large piece of history so close, it’s great.” Eugene Tong, (661) 257-5253 email@example.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

VALENCIA – When fictional President Josiah “Jed” Bartlet flies Air Force One to political hotspots foreign and domestic on TV’s “The West Wing,” there’s always a layover in Valencia. While all eyes are on the Air Force One Pavilion officially opening Monday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley – it features the Boeing 707 that served seven presidents – another Oval Office in the Sky has sat among us for more than six years – albeit a wingless fuselage that takes flight only on television. “It’s essentially nose-to-tail – the front cabin with the presidential quarters all the way to the back kitchen,” said Ken Hardy, production designer on the NBC drama, who has overseen the Air Force One set since “The West Wing” debuted in 1999. Stored in a local Warner Bros. warehouse, some 30 miles northeast of the Reagan Library, the set is 168 feet long and more than 20 feet wide – about three-quarters the size of the Boeing 747 in presidential service since 1990.
