UN Mechanisms
  • UN High Level Panel of Eminent Persons
    The High Level Panel comprises 30 members from civil society, private sector and government leaders and is co-chaired by President Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and Prime Minister Cameron of the United Kingdom. 

    The first meeting of the High Level Panel was held on 25 September 2012 in New York, as an opportunity to get a sense of how Panel members view the agenda, and to trade ideas. The second meeting with a particular focus on individual and household level poverty was hosted by the UK on 31 October - 2 November 2012 in London, including outreach functions involving civil society, private sector and youth. 

    The third meeting focusing on national development will be in February 2013 in Monrovia, Liberia, followed by the fourth one on global partnerships in March/April 2013 in Bali, Indonesia.

  • UN System Task Team (UNTT)
    The UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Department for Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) have been mandated by the SG to lead the work on the post 2015 framework. A UN System Task Team (UNTT) has also been set up to support the work of the High Level Panel, help define a system-wide vision for the post-2015 agenda, and to coordinate preparations for Beyond-2015. The Task Team is chaired by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the United Nations Development Programme and assembles more than 60 UN agencies and international organizations.

    The Task Team has been mandated to produce a study which answers the following six critical questions:
    1. Critical assessment of the MDG framework to identify what worked and what needs to be improved in a post 2015 development framework.
    2. Identification of emerging development challenges (or challenges that have become more pressing since 2000) in the current context and ways to incorporate them into the global development agenda.
    3. Assess proposals and processes for the post-2015 development agenda, with a clear mapping of actors and interactions among multiple stakeholders.
    4. Assess how the post-2015 development agenda would relate to ongoing processes and area-specific development targets.
    5. Assessing how the global partnership for development should be broadened and strengthened.
    6. Assessing possible formats for the post-2015 global development agenda.
    In its first report to the Secretary-General, Realizing the Future We Want for All, the Task Team outlines a vision for the post-2015 development agenda and suggests four key dimensions which can help to guide goal setting. In addition, members of the Task Team prepared a set of 18 think pieces which explore how different themes could potentially be reflected in a new framework.

  • UNTT National Consultations
    The UN Secretary-General  Report on accelerating progress toward the MDGs and the issues for advancing the UN development agenda beyond 2015 (A/66/126) stated that “[t]he post-2015 development framework is likely to have the best development impact if it emerges from an inclusive, open and transparent process with multiple stakeholder participation.”

    The UN system is uniquely positioned to foster this inclusive multi-stakeholder process and advocate for an agenda informed by national and local priorities.  UN agencies, funds and programmes can promote inclusive consultation process by identifying key groups, convening stakeholders, and informing the debate with relevant knowledge on development challenges, opportunities and solutions. 

    UNDG, under the UN System Task Team has developed an initial list of 50 countries selected to participate in the national consultations. These countries are intended to be a representative sample across several dimensions:  regional, country typology, and different types of development challenges (such as crisis situations). Other important considerations will include demand / ownership, strategic importance to multilateral processes (including Rio+20), and donor preference where stated. High Income Countries will be excluded from the sample, but outreach and consultation will proceed through alternative channels. It is expected that the participation of developed countries and their citizens will be done through the Global Web Portal, the Global Meetings and the networks of the UNDG agencies and their partners.
    The national consultations are intended to foster an inclusive multi-stakeholder process and advocate for a Post-2015 development agenda informed by national and local priorities. 

    The consultations will seek to ensure that the vision of the world we want to live in takes into account the perspectives from a broad base of civil society, marginalized groups, and others previously left out of discussions on development priorities.
