The consultative meeting was held within the framework of the United Nations post-2015 process aimed at critically appraising the current MDG framework, map on-going activities inside and outside of the UN on defining a post-2015 agenda, and assess challenges that have become more prominent in the last decade. The UN secretary general mandated the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) to lead the work on post-2015 framework.
The meeting was attended by members of the Pan African Parliament and representatives of civil society organisations. The United Cities and Local Governments (World and Africa) participated in the deliberations representing local governments’ concerns and interests. The UN aims to capture the voices of citizens through a process of ‘global conversations’ of open interaction and information exchange with citizens of the world. This consultation focused on Governance as a critical element in the post-2015 MDG Agenda.
