Southern Voice members participate in conference in New York jointly organized by ODI and UN Foundation

June 25-26, 2013 at UN Foundation

ODI and UN Foundation are jointly organizing a conference on HLP report entitled, “Turning evidence into action for the post-2015 agenda” on June 25-26, 2013 in New York. After well over a year of debate and discussion, the publication of the report of the UN Secretary General’s High Level Panel, and many thousands of hours of consultation, the outlines of a consensus on the post-2015 agenda are starting to emerge.  So too are the points of continued disagreement and debate. A joint event between UNF and ODI, this conference will provide space for substantive discussions aimed at identifying consensus as well as defining the issues on which there is less agreement, and the sources of those disagreements.

The conference will convene staff in UN missions, UN specialist agencies, leading thinkers and other key practitioners in New York and Washington working on the post-2015 agenda. The themes of the discussions on the first day are; social and environmental resilience building a post-2015 agenda that lasts-water, energy, education and financing a post-2015 agenda. On the second day the participants are going to discuss on delivering poverty eradication: economic transformation, employment and social protection, sustainable agriculture and food production, health and nutrition, integrating environmental sustainability and human development and global reforms for delivering a post-2015 agenda.
