The voice of the families, governmental institutions, non-governmental organizations working on family issues, discussing, contributing and implementing the Pos-2015 Development Agenda!
Following the many meetings and consultations being held by the UN, Governments at all levels, NGO's, Private Sector and the Civil Society, the WFS + 9 will also help respond to the global challenges of the 21st century, building on the Millennium Development Goals and on the emerging views for a new development agenda.
At the UN Conference Rio + 20 in 2012, world leaders agreed that after 2015 and building on the Millennium Development Goals, a new set of goals and targets needed to be grounded to finish the job that the MDG's successfully started.
A New Post-2015 Development Agenda is being discussed by all stakeholders involved in the sustainable development process. Governmental Institutions and Non Governmental Organizations working in Families issues as well as Families it selves cannot be out of the discussions and of the agenda setting.
The World Family Summit + 9 presented and discussed the ideas and proposals already formulated by different stakeholders, and in special added the voices of the families to the UN consultation process, which already came with some preliminary conclusions.
