the Istanbul Programme of Action
for Least Developed Countries
   
Antalya, Turkey
27-29 May 2016
The High-level Mid-Term Review of the Istanbul Programme of Action for Least Developed Countries will take place in Antalya, Turkey from 27-29 May.


Civil society representatives wishing to participate are invited to express their interest by applying here by 25 April 2016:  

http://www.unngls.org/index.php/ldc-mid-term-review/registration

Background

The Istanbul Programme of Action (IPoA) adopted at the Fourth UN Conference on Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in Istanbul, Turkey in May 2011, constitutes an ambitious policy agenda agreed by the international community to address the challenges faced by the LDCs, based on the fundamental tenets of mutual accountability and enhanced international cooperation.

The overarching goal of the IPoA is to overcome the structural challenges faced by the LDCs in order to eradicate poverty, achieve internationally agreed development goals and enable graduation from the LDC category. It also recognizes that the LDCs represent an enormous potential for world economic growth, stability and prosperity.

As the midpoint of the decade-long programme of action draws near, the UN General Assembly decided to hold the comprehensive high-level Mid-Term Review of the implementation of the Istanbul Programme of Action, which will take place from 27 to 29 May, 2016, in Antalya, Turkey (see resolution  A/RES/69/231 on the “Follow-up to the Fourth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries”). Participation shall be at the highest possible political level.

The high-level Mid-Term review shall result in an inter-governmentally negotiated and agreed outcome in the form of a political declaration. The review will undertake an assessment of the implementation of the Istanbul Programme of Action by the LDCs and their development partners. It will share best practices and lessons learned and identify obstacles, constraints and actions and initiatives needed to overcome them, as well as new challenges and emerging issues.

The Mid-Term Review will also serve to reaffirm the global commitment to address the special needs of the LDCs and to further strengthen the global partnership for development for LDCs in all priority areas of the Istanbul Programme of Action in order to ensure its timely and effective implementation during the remainder of the Decade.  Synergies with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the Addis Ababa Action Agenda and the COP-21 agreements will be explores to accelerate implementation.

Please apply to attend by 25 April 2016, and  follow our social media accounts below for updates.

New web platform on partnerships for SDGs launched (beta version)

Partnership Logo For NGOS

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (Division for Sustainable Development) is pleased to announce the beta version launch of “Partnerships for SDGs†– an online platform for encouraging global engagement around multi-stakeholder partnerships and voluntary commitments in support the sustainable development goals and their targets.

Initially developed in response to a mandate set out by the Rio+20 Conference (paragraph 283, Future We Want), the platform, which is being further enhanced to respond to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, will function as a tool to inform stakeholders on initiatives carried out by multi-stakeholder partnerships around the world in support of the sustainable development goals, track progress, and share innovative ideas. The platform is free and open to the public.

Available at: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/partnerships

REGISTER NOW

Register your initiative towards the Sustainable Development Goals: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/partnership/register/

CONSULTATION WITH STAKEHOLDERS

From 1 October to 1 November 2015, DESA will seek views of all interested stakeholders on a number of issues related to the role of multi-stakeholder partnerships in advancing the sustainable development goals, and the supporting role of this platform:

 What functionalities should the platform have? What is missing?

 How can partners best report on progress of their partnerships/commitments, without creating unnecessary reporting burden?

 How can the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and its regional commissions, the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA), and other inter-governmental fora best support the review process of multi-stakeholder partnerships and their impact on realizing the sustainable development goals?

Views will be sought trough an online survey. Results from the survey will guide the development of the projected “full version” so that it achieves its aim of becoming a tool to encourage global partnerships engagement around the SDGs.

Post-2015: Programme and registration for June session of the intergovernmental negotiations (22-25 June)

TO UN DESA NGO MAJOR GROUP & OTHER STAKEHOLDERS

Please note that everyone must register for IGN 6 to be held from 22-25 June at the link provided below. If you do NOT have a UN pass, please register by 14 June.

Also the co-facilitators will be convening a meeting with the Major Groups and other Stakeholders (MGoS) on Wednesday, 24 June, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm, where interested non-state stakeholders are invited to nominate themselves for consideration as a speaker in the form provided below.

In contrast to the interactive dialogues organized by steering committees at the previous IGN sessions, there is not a steering committee to organize the participation of either MGoS or government delegates. Member States will be invited to attend this meeting but not to speak as respondents as they did in previous interactive dialogues. Therefore UN DESA/DSD and UN-NGLS anticipate that some 36 MGoS representatives will be given the opportunity to speak 5 minutes each on the zero draft outcome document.

All MGoS constituencies will be invited to designate their “official representative”. NGOs who indicate an interest to speak as an “official representative” of the NGO Major Group in response to question 18, will be reviewed and considered by the NGO MG Organizing Partners, who will make the final selection. Additional designated speakers who are not selected by MGoS constituencies will be decided by DESA/DSD and UN-NGLS in consultation with speaker nominees at a planning meeting to be scheduled early next week.
