The Process

The World We Want web platform is a joint initiative between the United Nations and Civil Society.

The World We Want is a growing movement of people all over the world contributing their vision towards an overall plan to build a just and sustainable world free from poverty. It will help ensure that global efforts to secure a post-2015 development agenda are based on the perspective of people living in poverty.

Leading up to the year 2015, the United Nations is planning a series of consultations to help shape the post-2015 agenda with support from Civil Society coalitions including the Global Call to Action Against Poverty, CIVICUS and the Beyond 2015 Campaign, which have been organising Civil Society engagement in post-2015 discussions.

This process includes the creation of a High Level Panel, over 50 national and thematic consultations, community based discussion and a Global Online Conversation - all of which will contribute to a vision for The World We Want beyond 2015.

President Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia and Prime Minister Cameron of the United Kingdom were appointed in May, 2012 as co-chairs of the High Level Panel.

In June of 2012 Ms. Amina J Mohammed of Nigeria was appointed as Assistant Secretary-General and Special Advisor for Post-2015 Development Planning.
