25-28 February 2013 Dili, East Timor, Timor-Leste
Dili International Conference and Pacific Islands Stakeholder Consultation on Post-2015 Agenda

The Government of Timor-Leste is hosting an international conference on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, under the theme “Development for all : Stop conflict, build states and eradicate poverty,” from 26-28 February 2013. This event will be preceded, on 25 February, by the Pacific Islands stakeholder consultation meeting on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The conference will provide a country-owned and country-led forum for representatives of the g7+ and Pacific Island countries to contribute to the international conversation about the focus of development beyond 2015. It will assess what has prevented greater progress on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in fragile contexts, and how to frame the post-2015 development agenda to better address these challenges. It will focus on areas that do not yet have broad consensus or are not being covered by other forums. The Pacific Island states stakeholder consultation will offer a chance for Pacific representatives to share experiences of what has and has not worked under the MDGs, and put forward the Pacific’s development priorities for inclusion in the post-2015 dialogue. Leaders of governments of the 18 fragile and conflict-affected states that comprise the g7+ will lead the discussion. Outcomes of the conference will feed into the UN High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda (HLP). The Conference is supported by the Pacific Institute of Public Policy (PIPP), the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID) and the g7+ group.
