In 2015, the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Agenda will come to an end, and with it uneven progress toward achieving the goals at its core. At this juncture, the UN System, member states and civil society organizations have begun to discuss priorities for a Post-2015 Development Agenda.

The Post 2015 Development Agenda: What’s at Stake for the World’s Women?
March 5, 2013 10:30am-12:00 pm
Venue: United Nations Church Center Chapel (1st floor), 777 UN Plaza, New York, NY, United States

Hosted by the Post 2015 Women’s Coalition, this event will explore advocacy around the Post-2015 Development Agenda as an opportunity for women’s rights and social justice organizations to contribute to shaping a development framework that can transform the lives of women and marginalized populations. In the context of the MDGs and other processes, women’s rights and social justice organizations have sought to highlight the nexus between gender equality, women’s empowerment and development, demonstrating how progress towards equality can lead to greater social, ecological and economic justice. These linkages are now widely recognized and women’s leadership is needed as governments prepare for the Post-2015 Development Agenda to ensure that progress continues.
