The initiative encourages online participants to “share thoughts and recommendations about: jobs and livelihoods; growth, diversification and structural change; development-led globalization; sustainability and growth”.
Opinions and proposals will feed into a forthcoming report by the UN Secretary-General and will ultimately influence intergovernmental discussions shaping the post-2015 development agenda.
Three thematic consultations are currently open for contributions. Comments can be posted in nearly 60 languages. Have your say!
