5.1 This document has set out the enormous challenge to realising human rights for poor people. It has identified some of the key lessons we have learnt in responding to this challenge, and has very broadly identified the roles and responsibilities of the key actors at local, national and international level. This section identifies the specific actions we propose to take as members of the international community, and as partners of national governments and national and international civil society.
