REGISTRATION FOR NON-UN PASSHOLDERS (incl. N-passes and intern badges) HAS BEEN CLOSED
Registered non-UN passholders: Please meet us: 25 Sep, 10:30 am, @46th Street and 2nd Ave to receive your guest pass and to be escorted to the conference room. We can only grant access to registered guests.

The side event will aim to inform delegates and other stakeholders on how the priorities
that people and governments have articulated in the Post-2015 process to date could
be implemented.

This work builds upon the findings from the United Nations Development Group (UNDG)-organized ‘global
conversation’, and in particular the second round dialogues on means of implementation
that are taking place in 50 countries.

The event is timely as it will come hot on the heels of the Open Working Group (OWG)
proposal on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, the event will
precede the Secretary General’s report expected before the end of 2014 which will
synthesize all of the Post-2015 contributions up to that point.

The goal of the event will be to contribute to the debate and move the focus to the
importance of key issues such as accountability, monitoring and participation,
localization, and partnerships. The objective will be to present the findings of the UNDG
Dialogues on Post-2015 Implementation to Member States.

The side-event will be used to launch a short report with the main findings from the dialogues.

Speakers:
Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations
Helen Clark, Head of UNDG
Forest Whitaker, UNESCO Special Envoy for Peace and Reconciliation
Rajesh Mirchandani, BBC, Moderator
H.E. Mr John Dramani Mahama, President of the Republic of Ghana
