Since they were adopted by all UN Member States in 2000, the Millennium Development Goals have made a huge difference, helping to set global and national priorities and fuel action on the ground. They have raised awareness and shaped a broad vision that remains the overarching framework for development work across the world.
The UN development framework for the period after 2015 will build on the progress achieved through the MDGs while confronting persistent inequalities and new challenges facing people and the planet.
World We Want
Work to create the development framework for the period after 2015 has begun through a truly open and inclusive process by putting people first. Extensive consultations involving governments, civil society, the private sector, academia and research institutions from all regions are under way.
An online platform www.worldwewant2015.org has also been launched to enable people in all parts of the world to share their views. This means that they have the opportunity, as never before, to influence the development framework from the earliest stages of the process. Young people, who will be largely responsible for implementing the framework, are central to the consultations.
You also can vote directly for the changes that would make the most difference to your world. MY World is a global survey asking you to choose your priorities for a better world. Results will be shared with world leaders in setting the next global development agenda. Tell us about the world you want, because your voice matters.
UN Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Post-2015
The Secretary General’s High-level Panel on Post-2015 includes members from civil society and private sector in addition to government leaders. The panel, co-chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and UK Prime Minister David Cameron, was established by the SG to inform his thinking on a bold but practical vision for the world we want.
For the past year, the panel has deliberated what that jigsaw puzzle could look like, and how best to put it together.The Panel presented its report to the Secretary-General on 30 May 2013. The Secretary General will inform UN Member States in September 2013 about some preliminary decisions towards shaping the post-2015 framework.
