BREAKING NEWS: UN Human Rights Council Publishes 14th Report from KAILASA on Eradicating Poverty

February 19, 2024 – The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) of the United Nations has published a 14th report from KAILASA on “Eradicating Poverty in a Post-Growth Context: Preparing for the next Development Goals,” as part of the Council’s ongoing efforts to address global challenges and to promote sustainable development.

This report aims to explore the decoupling of poverty eradication from the pursuit of economic growth that is damaging to the environment and exacerbates inequalities. The report also considers how human rights can guide the search for alternative development pathways as the world prepares for the post-2030 Agenda.

KAILASA submitted an elaborate report detailing measures and policies implemented in its ecosystems by THE SUPREME PONTIFF OF HINDUISM (SPH) BHAGAVAN NITHYANANDA PARAMASHIVAM.

In alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) targets, KAILASA’s Hindu governance incorporates alternative indicators beyond GDP that emphasize holistic societal well-being while maximizing productivity. KAILASA’s economic model emphasizes self-sustaining settlements and local resilience, restoring the circular wealth creation system, promoting economic diversity, reducing dependency on external trade, and fostering a self-sufficient and sustainable society.

The UN SDGs present economic growth as essential to fulfilling the promise of the 2030 Development Agenda. The SDGs also take into account planetary limits and sustaining income growth of low-income earners in designing development strategies.

The Special Rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, Olivier De Schutter, will focus his report to the 56th session of the Human Rights Council on the role of economic growth, understood as an increase in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), in the fight against poverty. The report intends to explore “post-growth” approaches to poverty eradication that move beyond GDP and will consider whether and how development pathways guided by human rights can support the search for such alternative approaches.

KAILASA’s economic principles, reverence for nature and all beings, feminine worship, and other ancient enlightened principles make model policies for a self-sustainable society in all domains.
