From World we Want 2015
UNDP and UNEP are pleased to announce the launch of the post-2015 global consultation on environmental sustainability. This is one of a series of national and global (thematic) consultations convened by the United Nations Development Group to help shape the post-2015 development agenda.
This is an open dialogue for a multitude of voices to stimulate creative and innovative thinking on how we can put global development on a more environmentally sustainable path that can lead us to the world we want. In developing the post-2015 development agenda the world now has the opportunity to turn these innovative ideas into solutions that can shape the future.
In this first phase of the global consultation on environmental sustainability – now until January – we invite you to propose topics and questions that you think should be among the priorities for further exploration. You can do this by responding to the call for discussion notes and sharing your experiences and thinking on the online platform.
Early in 2013 the consultation will bring together leading thinkers in a meeting to review the submissions from the first phase of the consultation. Some of those who submit Discussion Notes may be invited to participate in this meeting. This meeting aims to select from and refine the identified topics for a more focused in-depth online discussion in a second phase of the consultation during February and March. A summary report will be an input to the High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda (HLP), as well as to the inter-governmental debate on the post-2015 development agenda starting with the 2013 UN General Assembly.
All are welcome to join this consultation. Help us spread the word to civil society, academia, private sector, governments, the UN system, and beyond. Now is the time to get involved to help shape the global development agenda.
