The following is a message from the United Nations Development Programme, on behalf of the organisers of the UN Policy Dialogue in April:
On behalf of the organisers, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the OECD Global Network of Foundations Working for Development (netFWD) and the Worldwide Initiative for Grantmaker Support (WINGS), we thank you for attending the ECOSOC Special Policy Dialogue of the Development Cooperation Forum (DCF) on “The role of philanthropic organizations in the post-2015 setting” in New York on 23 April 2013.
The event allowed for rich and open discussion on the philanthropic contributions to development and their roles in shaping the future development agenda post 2015. The final report with key messages and recommendations is now available here. All the resources from the event can also be found on the UNDP Teamworks space here, including a follow up philanthropic event on the sides of DCF during the High Level Symposium on 6-7 June in Ethiopia.
The organisers are committed to continue the dialogue, by engaging philanthropic leaders from around the world into the agenda as well as reinforcing messages from the Policy Dialogue at the global forums.
We hope that you stay involved with the UN and we are thankful for your interest in shaping the post-2015 development agenda. Please stay tuned for the upcoming events, including the 68th session of UN General Assembly in September which will feature the Secretary-General’s report on MDGs and post-2015 development agenda we well as the DCF Symposium on 24-25 October 2013 in Montreux, Switzerland.
