The discussions on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) make 2015 a special year.The SDGs chart a new course in numerous ways: they are being elaborated in a far more inclusive manner than previous goals, they define objectives for countries at all levels of development, and their realization will require much higher levels of investment. This means that they concern all of us. So what role can private development assistance - which amounts to $50 billion a year - play in that context and what is it that we can do as individuals?

This panel discussion looked at how each one of us can contribute to the elimination of extreme poverty through sustainable consumption, savings and donations, and by launching initiatives.
