The Copenhagen Declaration on Social Development

The Copenhagen Declaration on Social Development and its Programme of Action have guided multilateral action on social development since 1995. Adopted at the World Summit for Social Development (WSSD) in Copenhagen in March 1995, the Declaration emphasized the eradication of poverty as an ethical, social, political and economic imperative. The Declaration represented a unique consensus on three key objectives of social development, namely, eradicating poverty, promoting full and productive employment, and fostering social inclusion, and set out a holistic approach to achieving them. It recognized that social development cannot be achieved by the social sectors alone, nor through piecemeal initiatives, the approach required orientation of values, objectives, and priorities towards advancing social progress and a better quality of life and well-being of all. It aspired to “place people at the center of development by ensuring full participation by all”. Source
