Beyond MDGs Japan Symposium
‘Sustainable Development Goals and the Post-2015 Development Agenda
– Current International Discussions and Challenges for Implementation –’
As we near the deadline of the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015, the post-2015 development agenda to address the remaining challenges of the MDGs including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to further responding to various emerging issues is currently under discussion. The new international goals are expected to be adopted at the UN General Assembly in September 2015.
The aim of this symposium is to report on on-going discussions on the post-2015 development agenda, to consider the possible goals and targets towards 2030, and to look into indicators to assess the progress of implementation. This symposium will also address the challenges of both international and national implementation, which will lead to the discussion of ways of sustainable collaboration among the science community, local governments and the private sector in its realization.
