Report/paper, 5 pages
On 17 May 2015, the Independent Research Forum on a Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda (IRF2015) hosted the seventh in a series of informal retreats on the overarching 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 (under Chatham House Rule) on issues critical to framing the global debate on the post-2015 agenda and its implementation.
The Governments of Denmark, The Netherlands, Peru, Rwanda, Switzerland and Trinidad and Tobago co-sponsored this seventh retreat, which included participants from 32 member states, UN and World Bank representatives, members of IRF2015 and other independent experts.1 The meeting addressed the theme of “Towards Accountability for Results: Building an Integrated Monitoring and Review Framework for the Post-2015 Sustainable Development Agenda”.
A partnership formed in 2012, the Independent Research Forum (IRF) played an influential role as the Sustainable Development Goals evolved.
