Towards a Transformative Post‐2015 Development Agenda - retreat 5
Report/paper, 5 pages
On 7-8 November 2014, the Independent Research Forum on a Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda (IRF2015)—a collaboration of leading sustainable development institutes from across the globe—hosted the fifth in a series of informal retreats on the theme “Towards a Transformative Post-2015 Development Agenda.” The purpose of the retreats is to provide an informal setting for open and substantive exchange of views on issues critical to framing the global debate on the post-2015 development agenda. The retreats have progressively looked at a range of issues at the intersection of poverty eradication and sustainable development.
This fifth retreat included participants from 30 member states, UN and World Bank representatives, and members of IRF2015. The governments of Colombia, Guyana, The Netherlands, and Norway supported the organization of the retreat.1 The meeting was held under Chatham House Rule and addressed the theme of “A Renewed Global Partnership for Sustainable Development (GPSD).”
A partnership formed in 2012, the Independent Research Forum (IRF) played an influential role as the Sustainable Development Goals evolved.
