The conversation begins: Emerging views for a new development agenda

The report summarizes the findings of the consultation facilitated by the United Nations system since August 2012. An unprecedented series of consultations were held with people the world over to seek their views on a new development agenda to build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). This conversation responds to a growing call for active participation in shaping the ‘world we want’. Taking place well before governments sit down to negotiate and finalize such a new agenda, the consultations underway provide evidence and perspectives to governments on the challenges people face in improving their lives and those of their families and communities.
