OverviewThis year, the global spotlight is firmly on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. By September, the international community will adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – the guideposts for global development for the next 15 years in New York. The Third International Conference on Financing for Development (FfD)—held in July in Addis Ababa—highlighted the policy actions to generate financing to achieve the new goals. The global community also will seek to reach agreement on national carbon emissions targets to address climate change in Paris in December.
This seminar will address questions related to the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda. A diverse group of panelists will discuss the best approaches to reach the SDGs while ensuring that implementation is consistent with macroeconomic and environmental sustainability, and social inclusiveness. This exchange will also serve as a platform to identify the role of various stakeholders in the push for achieving the SDGs.
