Dialogues on Implementation of the Post-2015 Development Agenda

Continuing an inclusive dialogue on post-2015 is a mandate given to the UN by Member States. The UN Secretary General has heard this and is requesting that the UN system builds on the outcomes of the consultations already conducted (see thematic and national consultations below): it should keep the channels of debate and engagement open as the intergovernmental process moves into its next phase. A summary of the consultations so far can be found in the A Million Voices Report.

While the first phase of consultations that started in 2012  focused on the potential issues and areas to be included in a post-2015 development agenda (see thematic and national consultations below), the so-called ‘means of implementation’ have surfaced throughout the process and are becoming increasingly central to the debate going forward.

The UN development system is therefore creating space and opportunities for interested groups and individuals to contribute specific ideas and proposals for the implementation of the post-2015 agenda in their countries and at a global level.

The objective of these dialogues (launched in April 2014) is to draw upon the lessons learned and the collective wisdom of people around the world, convince policymakers that an ambitious post-2015 agenda can be implemented and foster a broad sense of ownership, inclusive planning structures and multi-stakeholder partnerships to support its delivery.

The interim results of the discussions, online engagement and research inputs will be summarized in a report and presented to Member States, as well as the public, in form of a high-level side event on Thursday 25 September 2015, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm ET in the Trusteeship Council Chamber in the United Nations Headquarter New York. Please RSVP here for the event. 

 
Thematic Consultations

The global thematic consultations collate stakeholders’ inputs around current and emerging challenges in respect to 11 defined substantive issues. These consultations aim to spark the building of a broad coalition for change around these specific themes, benefit from the lessons learned in the implementation of the MDGs, and to identify new opportunities for eradicating poverty and enhancing human development.

 
National Consultations

So far, the UN Country teams are supporting 88 countries to convene national consultations on the post 2015 development agenda. These are forums to exchange ideas for a shared vision of "The World We Want", in an open process tailored to country contexts. The national consultations are organized by UN Country Teams, under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinator, and are working with a wide range of stakeholders including governments, civil society, the private sector, media, universities and think tanks.

UN Country Teams and their government and civil society partners have designed their consultations according to stakeholder groups and constituencies, making deliberate efforts to engage groups that generally do not participate in policy discussions. The national consultations combine various methods – focus group discussions with vulnerable groups, roundtables with various stakeholders and online and SMS methods for greater outreach. A sample of online forums are provided below, though many methods are being used at national level. For more information about a specific consultation, please check the country or contact the relevant focal point.

This global conversation responds to a growing call for active participation in shaping the 'world we want'. Taking place well before governments sit down to negotiate and finalize such a new agenda, the consultations underway provide evidence and perspectives to governments on the challenges people face in improving their lives and those of their families and communities.
