E-discussion examines what it will take to transition from MDGs to SDGs

EDiscussionThe 2015 ECOSOC e-discussion takes place from 17 February to 17 March 2015 with the purpose of engaging policymakers, experts, practitioners and stakeholder groups in a global dialogue on specific aspects of the 2015 ECOSOC theme of “Managing the transition from the Millennium Development Goals to the sustainable development goals: What it will take”.

The e-discussion consists of four concurrently running thematic windows, each led by an expert moderator. The thematic windows address:

  1. policy choices and mindset change for an integrated agenda;
  2. adaptation by institutions and structures;
  3. partnerships for the implementation of the SDGs and the post-2015 agenda; and
  4. monitoring and review.
