Global online civil society consultation – key recommendations

From 19-26 October 2012, the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (NGLS) conducted a global online consultation with civil society to gather inputs for consideration by the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda ahead of their London meeting from 31 October to 2 November. The consultation, undertaken through the post-2015 virtual platform, www.worldwewant2015.org, enabled civil society to respond to a set of framing questions that were related to the focus of the High-level Panel’s meeting on 1 November 2012 on individual and household level poverty.

One thought on “Global online civil society consultation – key recommendations

  1. Why is the consultation with Global Civil Society conducted only in a narrow window 19-26 Oct 2012? It should be a window that is continually open. If this is the case, this should be reiterated rather than giving the impression that consultation with NGOs is now closed…

    Some basic messages from a large number of NGOs is not getting through. We want a COMPREHENSIVE FRAMEWORK for SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS.

    This means including a wide range of goals (900 Targets listed under 14 Goals, for example). It would include goals relating to peace and disarmament, including reducing world military expenditure; population stabilisation goals; organic farming goals; reducing tax havens around the world; ending fossil fuel subsidies; the implementation of a Tobin Tax – to name a few.

    Even the topic of protection of biodiversity and habitat barely has a mention so far. We want the 20 Aichi Targets included in the SDG Comprehensive Framework (SDG-CF).

    We would like to see this reflected in feedback from NGOs.

    Kind regards,
