A view of UN Headquarters in New York, venue of the Fourth Session of the Post-2015 Intergovernmental Negotiations (Means of Implementation and Global Partnership for Sustainable Development)

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.” 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.

Per resolution A/69/L.43, adopted on 29 December 2014, the UN Summit on the Post-2015 Development Agenda will take place from 25-27 September 2015, in New York, US. The process of intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, which will prepare for the UN Summit, began with a stocktaking session on 19-21 January. As adopted in decision A/69/L.44, the subsequent sessions were scheduled as follows: 17-20 February (Declaration); 23-27 March (SDGs and targets); 21-24 April (MOI and Global Partnership for Sustainable Development); 18-22 May (Follow up and review); and 22-25 June, 21-24 July, and 27-31 July (intergovernmental negotiations on the outcome document).
