MaKing The MDGs Work: From Advocacy Through Implementation To Acceleration And Beyond
Abstract:
2013 is a defining moment in the MDG timeline, with countries focusing efforts towards accelerating progress while at the same time drawing lessons from their MDG experience to help shape the post-2015 development agenda. These elements defined UNDP’s “2013 Global MDG Conference (GMC): Making the MDGs Work” held from 27-28 February in Bogotá, Colombia. The conference brought together over 180 participants from about 40 countries, representatives from 18 UN agencies, government representatives, media, civil society and academia. The GMC aimed to maintain the momentum for accelerating MDG progress to 2015, while taking stock of lessons learned from efforts to achieve the MDGs to help inform the development agenda beyond 2015. The GMC included a MDG Expo, which exhibited the catalytic contributions of several UN agencies and initiatives and their partners from around the globe in supporting countries towards achieving the MDGs. With less than 1,000 days remaining until the MDG deadline, the posters also highlighted critical areas where further progress was needed. Posters submitted by the UN MDG-F, UNEP, UNICEF, UNESCO and UNDP are brought together in this book for dissemination to a wider audience, with many thanks to our colleagues from across the world for these contributions. UNDP supported the Government of Nepal in promoting decentralized rural energy through an integrated, bottom-up participatory approach. UNDP has helped create enablinf policy frameworks, develop local capacity and provide knowledge-based advisory service for expanding access to energy services for the poor. UNDP has also played a catalytic role in increasing access to electricity in remote districts where grid connection was not available or planned in near future.
