UN-NGLS is pleased to announce the publication of its report Advancing Regional Recommendations for the Post-2015 Development Agenda, the synthesis of a four-month consultation conducted in writing and via teleconferences with 120 regional civil society networks.

The consultation, launched on 31 May 2013, gathered critical analysis from civil society on the UN post-2015 development agenda. This initiative was conducted in partnership with the Post-2015 Development Planning Team of the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, and with support from the UN Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund and the Ford Foundation.

UN-NGLS has synthesized the findings according to four main objectives for the post-2015 development agenda, which surfaced through clear convergence of priorities identified by regional civil society networks:

* Rebalance power relations for justice
* Fulfill human rights and overcome exclusion
* Ensure equitable distribution and safe use of natural resources
* Establish participatory governance, accountability and transparency

Section I of this report - Regional Convergences – presents summary of the principal civil society recommendations for achieving each of these four objectives, representing expert analysis received from all regions during the consultation. Sections II-VI provide detailed reports of the findings from each region, organized according to the four main objectives that were identified.
