This new paper, “The Post-2015 Corporate Development Agenda: Expanding Corporate Power in the Name of Sustainable Development” discusses how the corporate sector has long been trying to position itself front and center of the post-2015 development agenda by staking a claim at three levels: First, by setting goals that would suit their priorities for expansion; second, by claiming a primary role in mobilizing the means for implementing these goals; third, by shaping the governance framework that would be set-up to ensure progress in this agenda.

Five years from the next big ‘deadline on climate’, world leaders are still negotiating over deadlines. They are nowhere near agreeing on, much less mobilizing, even a basic roadmap for ensuring the fulfillment of commitments made by northern countries to the global south. This includes bankrolling US $100 billion of climate finance to developing countries every year by 2020, an amount climate scientists estimate is itself barely enough to meet the challenges we face.
On nearly all counts, the Lima outcome amounts to a major step-back on the climate negotiations so far. Even by the dilute standards of the Kyoto Protocol, the draft agreement is unambitious, offers no regulatory framework for what is supposed to be a “binding” climate agreement, and completes a process that blurs the distinction between global north and south.
