2015 is a crucial year as final political decisions are made that will determine the global development agenda for coming decades. The conversation around monitoring and accountability is also increasing, and is another area where people living in poverty need to be understood and involved as active agents.
On the 8th of July the co-facilitators of the post-2015 intergovernmental negotiations released the final draft of the outcome document of the post-2015 agenda which will be adopted during the UN Summit in September - see here
Dóchas is the Lead agency for the Beyond 2015 campaign in Ireland. Beyond 2015 is a global civil society campaign of over 1,000 organisations in more than 130 countries calling for the next set of global development goals to be developed through a process that is participatory, inclusive and responsive to the voices of those directly affected by poverty and injustice. The Dóchas Beyond 2015 Task Group was convened in 2013 and has been meeting regularly since then. Representatives of the group meet regularly with the Irish Aid officials representing the Irish position in both the UN and EU influencing spaces.
