dc.description.abstractThe Asia-Pacific region as a whole has had considerable success with the MDGs, particularly in reducing levels of poverty. Nevertheless, the region is off track when it comes to hunger, health and sanitation – and even in areas such as poverty a number of countries are lagging some way behind. After the target date of 2015, there will therefore be a significant ‘unfinished agenda’. The region also faces many emerging threats including rising inequality and unplanned urbanization, along with climate change and environmental pressures such as pollution and water scarcity. Among the issues that will be of greatest importance in the years after 2015 are: Poverty and inequality Lack of decent and productive jobs Continuing hunger and food insecurity An abiding bias against women Limited achievements in health Heightened vulnerability and economic insecurity Rapid demographic change Unplanned urbanization Pressure on natural resources Exposure to disasters The rising threat of climate change.
