Working group on the global partnership for development beyond 2015: Thematic Think Pieces
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have served as a shared framework for global action and cooperation on development since 2000. As the world approaches 2015, the overall target date for achieving the MDGs, thinking has begun on how to advance the global development agenda beyond 2015. To support this effort, the UN Secretary-General has taken several initiatives. He has established the UN System Task Team on the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda, launched a High-level Panel of Eminent Persons and appointed his own Special Advisor on Post-2015 Development Planning. These processes are complemented by a set of eleven global thematic consultations and national consultations in over 60 countries facilitated by the United Nations Development Group.
In September 2012 the UN System Task Team established a new working group on the global partnership for development beyond 2015. A set of think pieces, which were prepared by members of the working group, focus on lessons learnt from MDG8 and a series of specific themes relevant to renewing global partnerships in the post-2015 development agenda. These think pieces will be synthesized in a report to be published in March 2013. A number of thematic think pieces was recently published and is available from the link below.
