Pan-African Parliament, UNDP and OHCHR hold African Region

INFO: LIVE STREAM / African Regional Dialogue on Governance and the Post-2015 Framework

Governance central to ensuring sustainable development in Africa and globally

Pan-African Parliament, UNDP and OHCHR hold African regional dialogue on governance and post 2015.

Sustainable development relies on inclusive and responsive systems of governance. Any international commitment to achieving sustainable development and to eradicating poverty is also a commitment to strengthening rule of law, combatting corruption, empowering people to know, protect and demand their rights, and building capacity for government service delivery and supporting independent institutions of accountability.

In 2000, 189 world leaders made a commitment to work together to build a safer more prosperous and equitable world. They set out eight time-bound goals to be reached by 2015, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). With the 2015 MDG deadline fast approaching, the UN Secretary-General has outlined a UN-led process to determine the post-2015 development framework. To contribute to the UN system-wide effort, the UN Development Group has been tasked with the responsibility of holding national consultations in more than 50 countries and to hold eleven global thematic consultations on key issues pertaining to the post-2015 development agenda.

With the support of the Government of Germany and in association with the Pan African Parliament, UNDP and OHCHR are leading the global thematic consultation on governance, which will draw both on specialized expertise and employ a participatory approach to gather as much information as possible to guide the Secretary-General’s and UN Member States’ work on establishing a post-2015 development framework. The African Regional Dialogue on governance and post-2015 is co-organized with the Pan African Parliament and is the first in a series of events to be held in different regions of the world. This initiative represents an extraordinary opportunity to contribute viewpoints, experiences and perspectives that reflect the realities of people’s lives and related development priorities in Africa. This process of engagement, including gathering information and viewpoints will culminate in the final consultation meeting, which will also take place in South Africa in the first quarter of 2013.
