'Capacity Development Beyond Aid': After 15 years, Capacity.org signs off with retrospective publication | Capacity.org | 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

In this 113-page retrospective publication co-edited by Heinz Greijn, Volker Hauck, Tony Land and Jan Ubels, the partner organizations behind Capacity.org outline an agenda for future research and practice based on the substantive body of capacity development theory and praxis accumulated over the past few decades.

Learning for Development (L4D)'s insight:

Since 1999, Capacity.org has served as a knowledge platform for capacity development practitioners. During that period, we have published 47 issues of Capacity.org journal, addressing a broad range of issues on the theory and practice of capacity development. The full text archive of Capacity.org journal as well as thousands of resources on the practice of capacity development will continue to be available online until the end of the 2015.

Are FfD3 and Post-2015 striking the right public-private balance? | Global Policy Watch

Are FfD3 and Post-2015 striking the right public-private balance? | Global Policy Watch | 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

There’s no question that businesses around the world are sources of growth and employment. But they are also the source of the most serious threats to sustainable development—from pollution to illicit financial flows that undermine prospects for public resources.
Can we have a transformative development agenda without the transformation of business? Is it time for a new model of business fully grounded in sustainability and inclusion as inherent, not optional, operating principles?

Learning for Development (L4D)'s insight:

As discussions around funding modalities for a post-2015 development framework pick up pace, this policy brief asks whether, ultimately, the tradeoffs being made will compromise the global "social contract" and the need for a truly sustainable and transformative development agenda.

ENB Summary of the 1st Intergovernmental Negotiation on the Post-2015 Development Agenda | 19-21 January 2015 | New York, US | IISD Reporting Services

ENB Summary of the 1st Intergovernmental Negotiation on the Post-2015 Development Agenda | 19-21 January 2015 | New York, US | IISD Reporting Services | 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it
IISD Reporting Services (IISD RS), through its Earth Negotiations Bulletin (ENB), has covered the First Intergovernmental Negotiation on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, from 19 to 21 January 2015, from UN headquarters, New York, US
Learning for Development (L4D)'s insight:

With the deadline for "achieving" the Millenium Development Goals (MDG) just four months away, the race is on to complete a new set of goals to steer global efforts towards inclusive and sustainable development from 2015 onwards.


The first of eight intergovernmental negotiations on the post-2015 development agenda has just taken place in New York. The aim was to take stock of the process and provide some clarity on how the negotiation process will be organized, the key elements to be included in the new global framework, and how it will be implemented and reviewed.


This detailed summary and analysis from the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) provides an overview of last week's stocktaking discussions, and includes a helpful overview of the consultative process in 2013/14 that produced a "zero draft" of the post-2015 sustainable development goals and targets. This document will form the basis of the intergovernmental negotiations.

Member States, Statisticians Address SDG Monitoring Requirements | IISD Reporting Services

Member States, Statisticians Address SDG Monitoring Requirements | IISD Reporting Services | 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

The UN Statistics Division held a high-level dialogue between the political and statistical communities to discuss the institutional and statistical prerequisites to meet the data needs for the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Learning for Development (L4D)'s insight:
As countries prepare themselves to begin implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which was adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015, one of the questions coming to the fore is how progress will be measured. With 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 231 proposed indicators and a voluntary, country-driven approach (no globally enforceable targets), the question is: how will countries, let alone the global community, be able to assess what is being achieved on the ground? These are some of the issues that the UN Statistical Commission has been grappling with as it begins its review of the indicator framework proposed by the Inter-agency and Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goal Indicators (IAEG-SDGs).

The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) has closely followed the negotiation process that delivered the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs. Most recently, it has produced a series of informative reports on the indicator development process and some of the key questions that the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF) - the global body charged with coordinating the follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda  -  will be grappling with. To find out more, please visit the IISD Sustainable Development Policy and Practice portal at: http://sd.iisd.org/

G7 Foreign Ministers Identify Climate Change, Fragility as Priority - Sustainable Development Policy & Practice

G7 Foreign Ministers Identify Climate Change, Fragility as Priority - Sustainable Development Policy & Practice | 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development | Scoop.it

In their Communiqué, Ministers describe climate change as one of the most serious challenges the world faces, threatening the environment, global security and economic prosperity, and potentially reversing progress made in tackling poverty.

Learning for Development (L4D)'s insight:
Capacity.org's insight:

During the meeting, Ministers discussed the G7-commissioned study, ‘A New Climate for Peace: Taking Action on Climate and Fragility Risks.' The report describes seven compound climate-fragility risks that pose serious threats to the stability of states and societies: local resource competition; livelihood insecurity and migration; extreme weather events and disasters; volatile foods prices and provision; transboundary water management; sea-level rise and coastal degradation; and unintended effects of climate policies.

‘Localising’ the Post-2015 agenda: What does it mean in practice? | Publication | Overseas Development Institute (ODI)

There have been a number of discussions and consultations on the ‘localisation’ of the Post-2015 agenda. As implied by the very concept of ‘localising’, what it means will ultimately depend on the context and the specific characteristics of countries’ decentralisation systems. This note discusses different possible meanings of this term and their practical implications for how local governments could use a new set of development goals.
