The United Nations Development Programme is holding a series of thematic consultations on the post-MDG framework with academia, media, private sector, employers and trade unions, civil society and decision makers. These consultations will focus on 9 key areas:
- Inequalities (across all dimensions, including gender)
- Health (including issues covered by MDGs 4, 5, 6, plus non communicable diseases)
- Education (primary, secondary, tertiary and vocational)
- Growth and employment (including investment in productive capacities, decent employment, and social protection)
- Environmental sustainability (including access to energy, biodiversity, climate change)
- Food security and nutrition
- Governance (at all levels)
- Conflict and fragility (including post-conflict countries, and those prone to natural disasters)
- Population dynamics (including ageing, international and internal migration, and urbanization)
In addition, the UNDP is convening 50 inclusive national consultations led by the UN’s Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) on behalf of the General Assembly (GA).
Beyond 2015, a coalition of 380+ CSOs is coordinating a campaign to generate and present inclusive inputs from civil society into the consultations in order to influence the official UN process and to help build a civil society position on the content of a post-2015 framework.
The GPCR project and ASAP as a whole are urgently mobilizing resources to produce the right kind of outputs from academia to support the civil society effort to impact the consultation process and to do so in time to make a difference.
We will continue to update on the progress of the consultation process on this website. We would also recommend Beyond 2015‘s website as an excellent source of relevant and up-to-date information on the process.
