Co-facilitators of 25 September Special Event on the MDGs hold informal dialogue with NGOs
On 18 June, the Permanent Representatives of South Africa and Ireland, appointed as co-facilitators of the 2013 Special Event of the President of the General Assembly on the MDGs, held an informal dialogue with civil society leaders on the scope, modalities, and nature and outcome of the event, to take place in New York on 25 September 2013.

The interventions of non-governmental organisations, civil society organisations, the private sector and private philanthropic foundations focused on the following issues:

1. MDG progress and achievements to date;
2. Ways to accelerate MDG achievement;
3. The overall message of the Event, including in terms of the progress made to date and steps to be taken to accelerate MDG implementation as well as how it might touch on the overall post-2015 agenda?

The dialogue which took place in the temporary General Assembly Hall, North Lawn Building, was attended by some 200 representatives. The interventions made will be considered by the co-facilitators in furthering their work towards the 25 September special event.
