The Means of Implementation in Support of the post-2015 Development Agenda: Regional Perspectives
Wednesday, 5 November 2014 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
The objective of the Second Committee Dialogue with the Executive Secretaries this session is for Member States and other stakeholders to gain a better understanding of how the regional dimension can continue to play a critical role in catalysing and mobilizing the means of implementation, but now, in the achievement of the post-2015 development agenda.
The means of implementation have been recognized as a critical element for the success of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the post-2015 development agenda. Because of the ambitious and transformative nature of the agenda, countries will have to find ways of tapping into a broad range of sources, including traditional domestic and international public ones, as well as private and more innovative ones.
The Regional Commissions will provide specific examples of how existing regional and sub-regional initiatives and mechanisms are effectively contributing to making the means of implementation available and more readily accessible to countries, and how countries can strengthen their respective capabilities through these regional initiatives and mechanisms. The Regional Commissions will also demonstrate how they can contribute, through their work, to strengthen countries’ capabilities for the implementation of the post-2015 development agenda.
