After 2015 – The road towards the next global development agenda

Jose Dallo is the Senior Policy Advisor in UNDP’s Post-2015 team. He is also part of the core Post-2015 UN Task Team and the One UN Secretariat on Post-2015. Prior to joining UNDP, Jose Dallo worked extensively in developing countries for the Spanish Cooperation Agency and various development NGOs.

Global consultations have been held, people’s voices have been heard, numerous papers and reports have been published – but what can we realistically expect as the world’s leaders soon gather in New York to advance the international development agenda beyond 2015?

As global challenges mount, so do the expectations on the international community to come together and agree on a responsive framework that accelerates development efforts. There is no shortage of analyses and recommendations on how to move forward and tackle the critical problems of our time. But the big question remains – is there enough political will and courage to forge a new global partnership which is rooted in justice, environmental responsibility, and dignity for all?

This seminar will address the intergovernmental process on the next development agenda, looking ahead to the upcoming session of the United Nations General Assembly which opens in a few weeks. Analyzing the major pitfalls and opportunities for agreement, the seminar will take stock of the complex landscape of positions, agendas and alliances among the world’s nations and peoples;

What outcomes can we expect from the deliberations? What will be most difficult to agree on?

What will be required in order to move from visions to action?

What are the next steps in the multilateral process and how can member states, civil society and other actors impact?

The seminar will also discuss UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s new report on the next development agenda, “A Life of Dignity for All” as well as other recently released Post-2015/SDG related reports. We will also touch upon the forthcoming report of the MDG Gap Task Force, which monitors global development commitments under MDG 8.

What will it take for the world’s nations to agree and commit to the next set of development goals that are relevant for all? What are the lessons learned from the current MDGs? How can we ensure that the post-2015 agenda is rooted in the needs of the poor?

Focusing on the ongoing work to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and the UN process to formulate the new post-2015 framework, UNDP’s Nordic Office and the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation are jointly organising a seminar series to stimulate the discussion on critical development challenges. Drawing on international experts and civil society organisations, especially from the Global South, we hope to inspire development actors in Sweden, and create a platform for international voices to be heard in the Swedish debate. The seminar series aims to shed light on the the processes and major events leading up to the final formulation of the new global development agenda. The series will run throughout 2013 and into 2014.
