Beyond 2015 has just published its discussion paper for the upcoming Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development.
The paper outlines recommendations on principles for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how they should relate to the post-MDG framework and the process of creating this framework which has already been set in motion. Beyond 2015 issues a stark warning against developing two parallel processes after Rio+20 – one for SDGs and one for post-MDGs – and offers a list of desirable outcomes from Rio+20 regarding the SDGs. The discussion paper also includes the most recent version of the colourful and ever-popular CAFOD diagram outlining the post-MDG/SDG processes.
CAFOD is the co-chair of Beyond 2015, a global NGO campaign on the post-MDG framework bringing together more than 300 organizations in more than 70 countries. CAFOD and fellow participating organizations of Beyond 2015 will represent the campaign at Rio+20, for example at the Beyond 2015 side events on 13th June at the UN conference and on 16th June at the People’s Summit.
