Calendar of Activities for COP21
Member States of the United Nations (UN) have set 2015 as the year when they chart a new course for humanity. After nearly three years of consultations and intergovernmental negotiations, Heads of State and Governments adopted the “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” on September 24, 2015. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon describes this as “a plan of action for ending poverty in all its dimensions, irreversibly, everywhere, and leaving no one behind.”
A day after 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness (CPDE) together with grassroots activists, faith-based groups and NGOs organized a side event at the margins of the UN summit to discuss pressing issues affecting the marginalized and frontline communities in the context of the post-2015 development agenda.
A day after the world’s leaders adopted a new set of ‘Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) peoples’ organizations of peasants, workers, migrants, and frontline climate-impacted communities from Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe held coordinated country launches of Global Peoples’ Surge (GPS) on 28 September 2015.
