Influencing the Post-2015 Framework
In 2015 the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which have guided global development since 2000, will expire. InterAction and its members are dedicated to sustaining the momentum of the MDGs and collaborating across civil society to ensure the advancement of a new “Post-2015” framework. As an executive member of Beyond2015, InterAction will further engage the campaign to open processes and strengthen the Post-2015 framework.
InterAction endorses the U.N. Secretary General’s High-Level Panel report A New Partnership: Eradicate Poverty and Transform Economies Through Sustainable Development. The report is, as was mandated by the Secretary General, “bold and practical.” It provides a starting point for the next two years of intergovernmental negotiations and civil society advocacy, outlining 12 illustrative goals and targets.

MY World is a United Nations global survey for citizens. It aims to capture people’s voices, priorities and views, so world leaders can be informed as they begin the process of defining the next set of global goals to end poverty.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's High-level Panel was formed to advise on the global development framework beyond 2015. The Panel is co-chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom, and it includes leaders from civil society, private sector and government. The Panel submitted its report containing recommendations to the Secretary-General in May 2013. It includes 12 illustrative goals and targets.
World We Want 2015
The World We Want is gathering the priorities of people from every corner of the world and will help build a collective vision that will be used directly by the United Nations and World Leaders to plan a new development agenda launching in 2015.
Beyond 2015 is a global campaign aiming to influence the creation of a post 2015 development framework that succeeds the current UN Millennium Development Goals. Beyond 2015 brings together more than 570 civil society organisations in over 95 countries around the world. Read Beyond 2015 UNGA Briefing for more information on the post-2015 process going foward.
Ask Africa Now
This site seeks input from civil society groups and citizens in Africa, on the premise that Africa should be one of the key architects of the post-2015 agenda. It is compiling feedback through a questionnaire as well as research, reports and other key documents. It also has information on the African Civil Society Secretariat.
Participate is co-convened by the Institute of Development Studies and Beyond 2015, and funded by the UK government. The initiative is providing high-quality evidence on the reality of poverty at ground level, bringing the perspectives of the poorest into the post-2015 debate.
