In 2012, the United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon started preparations for the Post-2015 framework, which will implement the outcomes of the Rio+20 Conference and build on the Millennium Development Goals. The Post-2015 process presents a unique opportunity to address poverty eradication and sustainable development in one single and universal set of goals. This commitment was reaffirmed in the outcome document of the Special Event on the MDGs at the 2013 United Nations General Assembly. Negotiations on the Post-2015 framework will be launched at the 2014 United Nations General Assembly.
At the request of the European Commission, an EESC Conference "A new global partnership: European civil society positions on the post-2015 framework" will bring together stakeholders from a wide range of backgrounds to voice their positions and to debate on the Post-2015 framework:
The conference conclusions and recommendations will provide timely input to the upcoming Communication of the European Commission, which will lay the ground for a more detailed EU position at the launch of the negotiations in 2014.
This conference is prepared in broad partnership with civil society organisations and networks involved in the Post-2015 debate.
The EESC kindly invites you to join this conference. Please feel free to forward this invitation to your networks.
