1. Objectives

The global meeting will have the following overall objectives:

  • To contribute to a broad-based dialogue on the role of governance and accountability in the post-2015 development framework that includes civil society and other non-state actors;
  • To build a shared vision and ownership of how global, regional, national and sub-national governance and accountability should be integrated within the intergovernmental process to inform on the post-2015 development agenda;
  • To ensure that findings of the thematic consultation related to governance and accountability feed directly into key ongoing global processes, such as the High Level Panel and the Open Working Group, and where possible, into national consultations;
  • To discuss a menu of options to integrate governance into the post-2015 development agenda with key decision-makers in the intergovernmental process.


  • Key outcomes and substantive themes and suggestions that arose from the outreach meetings and the e-Discussion on governance and accountability on the virtual platform, World We Want 2015 (www.worldwewant2015.org/governance).


a. An overall consultation report

The final consultation report will draw on all consultation activities, including the global meeting, and will include recommendations on how governance and accountability can be integrated into the post-2015 development framework. The report will:

  • Identify key issues related to democratic governance and sustainable human development, discussed during the global consultation and in regional dialogues, taking into account the experience of the MDGs and specific challenges and opportunities at the global, regional and country levels;
  • Suggest, based on the discussion, a succinct number of recommendations, e.g. on how to:
    • Integrate democratic governance and accountability into the content of the post-2015 development agenda and related research gaps;
    • Ensure governance and accountability underpins the format of the post-2015 development agenda (e.g. measurement of progress) and related research gaps;
    • Engage with key partners around the intergovernmental process towards 2015.

b. Executive summary of the consultation report

  • This is a two to four page summary of the main consultation report (this summary may draw on the one submitted earlier to UNDG for the second overall report on the global consultations)

c. Consolidated High-Level Report of key points and recommendations

  • This report will focus on key points and recommendations directed to the High-Level Panel

d. Communications note aimed at governance and accountability champions

  • A succinct guideline or note for governance and accountability champions, which can be taken forward as a tool to engage with the Open Working Group and other intergovernmental processes.

These reports will be used to engage with the Secretary General’s High-Level Panel on Post 2015, the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals and with other key processes in preparation of the General Assembly’s special session in 2013 and beyond.

  3. A leaders moderated round table’ discussion
  4. Engagement with leaders and the media
