Asia-Pacific CSO Meet on the post-2015 Process Opens Application
Posted on 25 August 2013
Application is open until July 26, 2013
CSO formations and social movements from all over the Asia-Pacific region will meet on the 23rd and 24th of August in Bangkok Thaila nd to discuss a just development agenda in line with the post-2015 framework. The event aims to develop the capacity of Asia-Pacific civil society groups for a more active participation in forwarding the people’s goals as part of the post-2015 development agenda.
The creation of a new global development agenda beyond 2015 is a major concern for civil society formations across the globe, as it would render major implications to the lives of millions. As such, the said CSO conference targets to project the voices of Asia-Pacific civil society formations in order for them to effectively participate in the post-2015 process.
The conference is an initiative of the Campaign for People’s Goals, Asia-Pacific Form on Women, Law and Development (APWLD), IBON International, Asia-Pacific Research Network (APRN), and the Asian Indigenous People’s Pact (AIPP), Asia Rural Women’s Coalition together with the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia-Pacific (UNESCAP).
Another important highlight of the forthcoming event is to allow CSOs to contribute to the Asia-Pacific Ministerial Dialogue: From the Millennium Development Goals to the United Nations Development Agenda beyond 2015—a post-2015 project organized by the Royal Government of Thailand in cooperation with ESCAP (see http://apmd2013.unescap.org for more information).
The application process is now open until Friday, 26 July 2013 for self-funded participants.
