BRICS urges developed countries to honour their Official Development Assistance commitments.

BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) foreign ministers meeting in Pretoria have reconfirmed their commitment to fully implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development to equitable, inclusive, open, all-round innovation-driven and sustainable development, in its three dimensions – economic, social and environmental – in a balanced and integrated manner.

During their Monday meeting, the ministers pledged their support for the important role of the United Nations, including the High Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), in coordinating and reviewing global implementation of the 2030 Agenda, and supported the need to reform the UN Development System with a view to enhancing its capability in supporting member states in implementing the 2030 Agenda.

They urged developed countries to honour their Official Development Assistance commitments in time and in full and provide more development resources to developing countries.
