Post-2015 Development Agenda: Realising the convergence of the Post-MDG and SDG decision-making processes

Cover Post-2015 Development AgendaThis paper has been produced by Stakeholder Forum for a Sustainable Future and CAFOD as part of their work on the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The objective of this paper is to inform the debate about the need for convergence and coherence between the two primary processes which together constitute the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

In sum, this paper proposes to build on the existing political energy and to avoid confusion and duplication of efforts, one process is needed going forward that will create a single post-2015 process and lead to a unified sustainable development framework for poverty eradication, characterised by one set of global goals. This needs to happen from September 2013.
