STRATEGIC PLENARY I
Shaping the urban future : The future we want
Post 2015 Development Agenda
This strategic plenary will be dedicated to the Post 2015 Development Agenda. In the wake of the 68th General Assembly of the United Nations during which there will be an analysis of the MDG and a first draft of the future Post 2015 Development Agenda will be published, this plenary will be an opportunity to strengthen the dialogue between the international community and local and regional leaders and to address a number of issues, including:
What objectives should be set for the new development agenda? How best to integrate the Post 2015 Development Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals whose key principles were adopted in Rio+20? What are the objectives and key targets that local and regional governments wish to be integrated into the new Agenda? This session will also give particular attention to the work carried out by the High Level Panel of which Mayor Topbas was a member and representative of local and regional authorities' voices and the work of the International Taskforce of local and regional governments on post 2015 and Habitat III, created by UCLG and composed of the major local and regional government networks active on the international scene.
