Details are as follows:

Institutionalising Civil Society Space in the Post-2015 Agenda
Side Event during the May Post-2015 Intergovernmental Negotiation Session

Tuesday, 19 May 2015
1.15-2.30PM | Conference Room 9, UN Headquarters

Civil society has played a critical role in processes for the Post-2015 Development Agenda, introducing progressive discourses around development effectiveness, gender equality, democratic participation, and a human-rights based approach to development. In this regard, it is important to recognise that the road for civil society has been far from smooth, and problems plague the pursuit of an enabling environment for CSOs at a global and country level. The dialogue will focus on the potential for institutionalising CSO participation at all relevant levels of governance in the post-2015 Agenda – national, regional, and global.

Speakers:

– H. E. Ambassador Guillermo Rischynski, Permanent Representative of Canada to the United Nations
– Ms. Barbara Adams, Global Policy Watch
– Ms. Tilna Numhi-Södergren, My Right and member of the Swedish delegation to the UN on Post-2015

Accountability and Gender Equality for the Financing for Development and Post-2015 Agendas
Side Event during the May Post-2015 Intergovernmental Negotiation Session

Wednesday, 20 May 2015
1.15-2.30PM | Conference Room 12, UN Headquarters

Member states, UN agencies, and civil society organisations are channeling unprecedented resources and energy toward a new sustainable development agenda that aims to lift billions out of poverty and deprivation, while realising human rights, ensuring gender equality and women’s empowerment, protecting our environment, and creating a more just and equitable world.

As with any commitments they undertake, States should be held accountable to the people for implementing the Post-2015 and Financing for Development agendas, as should other development actors such as international financial institutions, the private sector, and civil society.

Robust, transparent and participatory monitoring and accountability mechanisms can improve the credibility, ownership and effectiveness of the Post-2015 and Financing for Development agendas for people and for States, and make these processes more transformative, equitable and responsive to the needs of people and planet.

Speakers:

– H.E. Mr. Dámaso Luna, Deputy Director General for Global Affairs, Mexican Ministry of Foreign Affairs
– Mr. Stefano Prato, Society for International Development
– Ms. Maria Theresa Nera-Lauron, CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness/Asia-Pacific Regional CSO Mechanism
– Ms. Luisa Emilia Reyes Zuñiga, Equidad de Género: Ciudadanía, Trabajo y Familia, Mexico; Women’s Major Group

Ms. Susan Alzner, Officer in Charge, UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS), New York Office
