Proposed themes for the UN General Assembly Session on the Post 2015 Development Goals
The co-chairs have released a revised version of what should be the six themes for the the post-2015 Summit interactive dialogue in the UN GA September 25-27th.
As per Decision 69/555 on the modalities for the process of intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda, the overarching theme for the dialogues will be "Transforming the world: realizing the post-2015 development agenda".
