[Beyond 2015:323] Please help us improve the Beyond 2015 campaign!

Dear Beyond 2015

In October 2014, Beyond 2015 will be working with an independent M&E specialist to conduct a mid-term review of the campaign. Beyond 2015 is committed to support the active participation of all its members and this review will evaluate our work to date and suggest how we can improve in order to ensure the emergence of a global, overarching, cross-thematic framework that succeeds the Millennium Development Goals in 2015 through a process that is participatory, inclusive and responsive to the voices of those directly affected by poverty and injustice.

A key input into this mid-term review is a ‘Stocktaking Survey’ which we hope as many of our participating organisations as possible will complete. The Stocktaking Survey will provide an opportunity for the whole campaign to reflect on the post-2015 process to date (both within Beyond 2015 and externally), and to project for the final 12 months of the post-2015 negotiations. It will also help guide the political strategy of Beyond 2015.

As such, we are pleased to share with you a brief survey, which I would encourage all organisations participating in Beyond 2015 to spend a few minutes completing. Please click here to access the survey!

The survey includes 30 questions (the majority of which are multiple choice) and should take around 15 minutes to complete.

We would ask you to complete the survey before midnight CET on Sunday 28 September. This will allow the Secretariat time to compile the results for the consideration of the M+E specialist, who will start work with us on 1 October.

We want to make sure the campaign is working as well as possible to achieve our goals of an ambitious, transformative and universal post-2015 development agenda that leaves no-one behind. This Stocktaking Survey is a crucial way to help us do this.

Once again, the link to the survey:

With thanks

Chère campagne Beyond 2015

En Octobre 2014, Beyond 2015 travaillera avec un spécialiste indépendant pour faire une évaluation à mi-parcours de la campagne. Beyond 2015 s’est engagé à soutenir la participation active de toutes les organisations participantes à la campagne, et ce sondage évaluera notre travail à ce jour et indiquer comment nous pouvons améliorer en vue d’assurer l’émergence d’un cadre global multithématique pour le développement après 2015 et que le processus d’élaboration de ce cadre est participatif, inclusif et sensible aux voix de ceux qui sont directement touchés par la pauvreté et l’injustice.

Un élément clé dans cette revue est un «sondage d’OSC » Nous encourageons toutes les organisations participantes de Beyond2015 de compléter. Le sondage d’OSC bilan sera l’occasion pour la campagne de réfléchir sur le processus post-2015 à ce jour (à l’intérieur et à l’extérieur de Beyond 2015), et de projeter sur les 12 derniers mois de négociations post-2015. Il aidera également à orienter la stratégie politique de Beyond 2015.

En tant que tel, nous sommes heureux de partager avec vous ce sondage, et on vous encourage chaudement de passer quelques minutes à compléter. Cliquez ici pour accéder au sondage!

Le sondage comprend 30 questions (dont la majorité est à choix multiple) et devrait prendre environ 15 minutes à remplir.

Nous vous invitons à remplir le questionnaire avant minuit CET le dimanche 28 Septembre. Cela permettra au Secrétariat le temps de compiler les résultats pour le spécialiste  qui commencera son travail le 1er Octobre.

Nous voulons nous assurer que la campagne fonctionne aussi bien que possible pour atteindre nos objectifs partages d’un cade de post-2015 ambitieux, de transformateur universel qui ne laisse personne derrière. Ce sondage est un moyen essentiel pour nous aider à faire cela.

It has also been a huge and unforgettable part of both my professional and personal life,” Michael said.
