Post-2015 development agenda
Other TitlesReport of the regional consultation, 19-21 March 2013, Bangkok, Thailand
AbstractAs the target year of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), i.e. 2015, is drawing closer, there is not only the need to reinvigorate and expedite the achievement of MDGs but also to explore future goals for the post-2015 development agenda. At the United Nations (UN) Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) held in 2012, the Member States gave the UN a clear mandate on how the process of preparing for the post-2015 development agenda should unfold, emphasizing the need and importance of a transparent, inclusive and an open process with inputs from a wide range of stakeholders. Extensive discussions have been undertaken at national, regional and global levels on the post-2015 development agenda, from which recommendations are emerging on the vision, goals, themes and contents of the post-2015 development agenda framework. A regional consultation on the post-2015 development agenda was held in Bangkok, Thailand, from 19 to 21 March 2013, which provided a forum for Member States from the WHO South-East Asia Region to reach a shared understanding and develop a regional perspective on the post-2015 development framework. A regional perspective was achieved through plenary panel discussions and presentations, as well as through group work, the contents of which are summarized in this report.
