A view of UN Headquarters in New York, venue of the Third Session of the Post-2015
Intergovernmental Negotiations (Sustainable Development Goals and Targets)

2015 Time for Global Action Agenda for People and for Planet In September 2000, world leaders at the Millennium Summit called for a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty in the Millennium Declaration, following which the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were elaborated based on consultations among representatives of international institutions. The United Nations Secretary-General presented what are now called the MDGs to the UN General Assembly in 2001. UN Member States recommended these be used as a guide to implement the Millennium Declaration, with deadlines for accomplishing the goals set for 2015.

The United Nations is now making preparations for what will succeed the MDGs, referred to broadly as the “post-2015 development agenda.” This new, global agenda is currently anticipated to comprise four elements: an introductory declaration; Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), targets, and indicators; means of implementation (MOI) and a new Global Partnership; and a framework for follow up and review of implementation.

This meeting is the third in a series of negotiations leading to the anticipated adoption of the post-2015 development agenda at a UN Summit to take place from 25-27 September 2015, in New York, US. The meeting will focus on the current draft SDGs and targets. Previous meetings in this series focused on stocktaking, and proposed text of a declaration. Further meetings are scheduled for 21-24 April (means of implementation, and a Global Partnership for Sustainable Development); 18-22 May (follow-up and review); and 22-25 June, 20-24 July, and 27-31 July (intergovernmental negotiations on the outcome document).
