Public Dialogue and Leadership Meeting on Addressing Inequalities in the Post-2015 Development Agenda

18-19 February 2013 | Copenhagen, Denmark

The Public Dialogue and Leadership Meeting on Addressing Inequalities in the Post-2015 Development Agenda took place from 18-19 February 2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Co-hosted by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UN Women and the Governments of Denmark and Ghana, these meetings were the culmination of the Global Thematic Consultation on Addressing Inequalities in the Post-2015 Development Agenda and were held to review the final report and findings of the consultation.

The public dialogue, held on the first day, included three interactive discussions that focused on: the impacts of inequalities; the different dimensions of inequality that should be of greatest concern, the synergies among them, and the common factors that drive and sustain them; and the most effective ways to address inequalities and their driving factors in a new development agenda, as well as ways to assess and measure progress on reducing inequalities in the years ahead.

The public dialogue was attended by 148 participants. In addition, about 1400 people visited the websites where the dialogue was webcast, with many submitting questions via Twitter and email.

The results of the dialogue were presented to the leadership meeting that was held on the second day. The leadership meeting was attended by 42 high-level participants, including Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Mary of Denmark, and about 100 other delegates. The leadership meeting, which included a High-Level Roundtable on Addressing Inequalities in the Post-2015 Development Agenda, produced a Chairpersons’ summary statement.

This report summarizes the presentations and discussions during the public dialogue and leadership meeting.
