Special Event towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)

25 September 2013 | UN Headquarters, New York, United States of America

UNGA
On Wednesday, 25 September 2013 at United Nations Headquarters in New York City the President of the UN General Assembly (UNGA or General Assembly) convened a one-day Special Event Towards Achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The Special Event was divided into opening and closing plenary sessions and two pairs of parallel roundtable sessions where participants were asked to reflect on key questions regarding the achievement of the MDGs by 2015 and shaping the post-2015 development agenda. As starting points for the discussions, participants used the Secretary-General’s 2013 report to the UNGA “A life of dignity for all: accelerating progress towards the Millennium Development Goals and advancing the United Nations development agenda beyond 2015” (document A/68/202) and a Secretariat “background note,” which posed key questions for consideration and discussion. During the opening plenary a negotiated outcome document was endorsed that will be forwarded as a President’s text to the General Assembly for its adoption.
