As part of the United Nations Development Group (UNDG) project “Continuing inclusive dialogue on the post-2015 development agenda,” the element on “partnerships with civil society” builds upon the diverse civil society engagement in previous UN-led consultations, with a focus on issues related to means of implementation for the post-2015 development agenda.
As part of this project, an e-Discussion aims to identify good practices and concrete recommendations for successful government/civil society partnerships. The deadline for inputs is 25 July.
During the month of June, the e-Discussion invited inputs on a question from the High-level Political Forum (HLPF) programme. Inputs to this question were synthesized and delivered to Member States at the HLPF meeting, during the 30 June session on Means of Implementation for Sustainable Development. This synthesis report is available here.
The "Partnerships with Civil Society" project also involves several national meetings, as well as a global meeting co-hosted by the Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Korea tentatively scehduled to take place at the end of October 2014 in Cambodia.
Results of the e-discussion and national dialogues will be compiled, by the co-leading UN agencies, in a set of recommendations, to be showcased during the global meeting, and fed into the UNDG global report on the dialogues as well as the Secretary-General’s Synthesis Report on the post 2015 development agenda.
The "Partnerships with Civil Society" project is co-led by UN-NGLS, UN Volunteers, UN Population Fund (UNFPA), and UN Millennium Campaign.
