The UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS) is facilitating online and regional consultations to gather analyses of civil society about several reports on the post-2015 development agenda.
These views will be compiled into a synthesis report, to be delivered to the Secretary-General and Member States in September.
5 June 2013: The UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS) has launched consultations to gather civil society views on four key inputs to the post-2015 development agenda. The views – comprising a “critical analysis” – will be compiled into a synthesis report, to be delivered to the UN Secretary-General and Member States in September 2013.
The consultation has opened with four discussion questions on the report of the UN High-level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda (HLP), which was released on 30 May. Discussion on the reports of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN) and UN Global Compact (UNGC) will open after their released in mid-June, and reactions to the post-2015 report of the UN Development Group (UNDG) will be gathered after its release in mid-August.
In addition to online contributions, participants can present their views in four regional teleconferences geared toward inclusion of South-based civil society. The teleconferences will be held in Arabic, English, French, and Spanish.
The synthesis report will highlight civil society’s concerns and areas of agreement and disagreement with the information presented in the reports. The report will inform a day of dialogue between civil society and Member States on the post-2015 development agenda, on 22 September 2013, and be delivered to the UN Secretary-General and Heads of State and Government at the UN General Assembly (UNGA) Special Event on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), on 25 September 2013, as well as to the Open Working Group (OWG) on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The consultations are being conducted in partnership with the Post-2015 Development Planning Team/Executive Office of the Secretary-General. [World We Want Press Release] [NGLS Press Release]
