Linked with Beena Sarwar – Pakistan.

Convention Statement: We, the participants of this convention on human development, believe that we must take control of our own future and work for an enabling environment for pro-poor and development-friendly public policy. We pledge to continue working for a Pakistan where:

  • Governance of public institutions is transparent and effective; there is austerity in government spending; and wide public participation in national decision-making.
  • Ready access to justice for all is ensured, constitutional supremacy and rule of law is established, and the independence of judiciary and media is respected.
  • Public spending is re-directed to significantly increase investments in education, primary and preventive health care, and grass roots economic development.
  • The culture of dependence on foreign aid and loans is curtailed.
  • Social and economic entrepreneurs are given the space to create a vibrant and just society.
