Post 2015 Agenda
The “Post-2015 Agenda” is the development agenda that will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) upon their expiration in 2015. After 2015, efforts to achieve a world of prosperity, equity, freedom, dignity and peace will continue unabated.
The UN is working with governments, civil society, and other partners to build on the momentum generated by the MDGs and carry on with an ambitious post-2015 development agenda. The MDGs will be replaced with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which will shape the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
At the September 2010 MDG Summit, UN Member States initiated steps towards advancing the development agenda beyond 2015 and are now leading a process of open, inclusive consultations on the post-2015 agenda. Civil society organizations from all over the world have also begun to engage in the post-2015 process, while academia and other research institutions, including think tanks, are particularly active. The set of eleven global thematic consultations and national consultations in over 60 countries is facilitated by the United Nations Development Group and involves partnership with multiple stakeholders.
