“We, Heads of State and Government and High Representatives... reiterate our resolve to take concrete action to implement the Monterrey Consensus and address the challenges of financing for development in the spirit of global partnership and solidarity. We once again commit ourselves to eradicate poverty, achieve sustained economic growth and promote sustainable development as we advance to a fully inclusive and equitable global economic system.
2. We reaffirm the Monterrey...and recognize that mobilizing financial resources for development and the effective use of all those resources are central to the global partnership for sustainable development...including the Millennium Development Goals. We also reaffirm the importance of freedom, peace and security, respect for all human rights, including the right to development, the rule of law, gender equality and an overall commitment to just and democratic societies for development, as spelled out in the Monterrey Consensus. We reiterate that each country has primary responsibility for its own economic and social development and that the role of national policies, domestic resources and development strategies cannot be overemphasized.”

“We commit ourselves to reinvigorating the global partnership for development in order to effectively address the full range of financing for development challenges facing the world today. We recognize that multiple financing for development challenges and opportunities have emerged since the Monterrey Conference, including the impact of the financial crisis, additional costs of climate change mitigation and adaptation and damage to the Earth’s environment, price volatility in international markets of key commodities, expanding economic cooperation and the growing needs for reconstruction and development of postconflict countries. We reaffirm our resolve to take concerted global action to address all these areas while consistently furthering economic and human development for all.”
