The Post-2015 Process comes to an end


The final intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda took place in New York July 20-31, 2015 culminating in the adoption of Transforming Our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development by 193 Member States on Sunday evening, August 2 after long and arduous negotiations. Representatives of regional SRHR networks from around the world, together with UNFPA, advocated tirelessly at these negotiations to ensure that the post-2015 agenda guarantees human rights, particularly the SRHR of all people everywhere; brings gender equality to the forefront; recognizes young people’s role as key agents of change; and includes the active participation of civil society in shaping global development, both at country and global levels.

The informal consultations were led by Member States with the broad and active participation of Major Groups and civil society stakeholders, such as ASTRA and partners within the SRHR Campaign launched together with UNFPA, the Youth Leadership Working Group (with ASTRA Youth as its member) and the Civil Society Platform to Promote SRHR Beyond 2015 (ASTRA is member of its Coordinator Committee). The impact of civil society advocacy was recognized by the co-facilitators and several Member States, and Amina Mohammed, the Secretary-General’s special advisor on post-2015, thanked civil society for their engagement and particularly recognized CSOs’ technical inputs, indicating a clear mandate for our continued engagement in the process. Statements made by Major Groups and other Stakeholders, including by SRHR Campaign members can be found here here.

The outcome document from this informal process will serve as the basis for the agreement to be formally adopted at the United Nations Summit to adopt the post-2015 development agenda in September 25-27.
