Localization of the Post-2015 agenda

Localization of the Post-2015 agenda

As part of the global debate on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, the UN launched in April 2014 a new round of global consultations on the “means of implementation”, i.e. how the Post-2015 Agenda will be implemented?

Six themes have been proposed to the consultation: Localizing the post-2015 agenda; Participatory Monitoring for Accountability; Partnerships with Civil Society; Engaging with the Private Sector; Helping to Strengthen Capacities and Build Effective Institutions; and Culture and Development

The consultation on the “Localization of the post 2015 agenda” is co-led by UNDP, UN Habitat and the Global Task Force of Local and Regional Governments (GTF).
 
The consultation process includes:

  1. E-discussions (from May 19th to July 18th) through the webpage forum:  
  2. National and local dialogues in 15 countries (from May to July)
  3. Regional and Global dialogues and events
  4. A Final International High Level Event (October) to present the final results.

The findings of this consultation will be finally presented to the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, to inform the post-2015 development framework.

Participate in the e-discussions from May 19th to July 18th 

Your participation will be critical to influence the global post-2015 negotiation process and to strengthen the recognition of the role of local and regional authorities in the implementation of the Post-2015 Agenda.
 
FOR ACTION:

  • Participate in the e-discussions posting messages and experiences to help localizing the Post-2015 Development Agenda (please find enclosed the e-discussion concept note)
  • Actively participate in the 50 focus countries where the different consultations will take place and particularly in the 15 countries focus on “Localizing the Post-2015 Agenda” (see the annexed Flyer on the Post-2015 Dialogues on Implementation)
