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, at which point UN member states recommended that they should 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.” Resolution 69/244, adopted on 29 December 2014, called for the UN Summit on the Post-2015 Development Agenda to take place from 25-27 September 2015, at UN Headquarters in New York. The process of intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, which is preparing for the UN Summit, began with a stocktaking session on 19-21 January 2015. The second session (17-20 February 2015) focused on the declaration; the third session (23-27 March) discussed the SDGs, targets and indicators; and the fourth session (21-24 April) examined means of implementation and the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. The 5th Session discussed follow up and review. Intergovernmental negotiations on the outcome will take place at the final sessions from 22-25 June, 21-24 July, and 27-31 July. The post-2015 development agenda will be adopted at a United Nations summit to be held from 25-27 September 2015, in New York and convened as a high-level plenary meeting of the UN General Assembly.

Negotiations at the June session will be based on the 43-page “Zero draft of the outcome document for the UN Summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda.” This document contains a 44-paragraph declaration, the SDGs and targets, Means of Implementation and the Global Partnership (containing placeholder language, pending the outcome of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development), and Follow-up and Review. The zero draft also has three annexes: Annex 1: Proposed Target revisions; Annex 2: Food for thought paper on a possible Technology Facilitation Mechanism; and Annex 3: Introduction of the Open Working Group Proposal for the Sustainable Development Goals and targets.
