Building the Post-2015 Development Agenda

Nov 3, 2015

One of the criticisms of the MDGs was the absence of an inclusive consultation process during their formation. In response to this, UNDP and its partners advanced an innovative approach to fostering global participation in the formulation of the post-2015 development agenda. We brought different voices from across the globe and across stakeholder groups to the debate.

The UN Global Conversation has made a significant contribution to the international discourse around the post-2015 agenda. The consultations have helped governments craft a development agenda that builds on the successes of the MDGs and yet addresses broader challenges related to sustainability.

In 2014, covering this reporting period, UNDP continued the dynamic created by the consultations with particular emphasis on three lines of work:

  • the pursuit of a global dialogue on ‘means of implementation’ not adequately addressed in other processes,
  • formulating, testing and monitoring illustrative pilot goals at the national level,
  • continuing to provide and coordinate policy support to Member States.
