In 2013, a UN special event will follow up on efforts made toward achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and will likely raise the issue of what might follow after the target year of 2015. Following the decisions taken at the review meeting in 2010, the UN Secretary General has started preparatory work.
In this context, in June 2012, the European Commission launched an online Public Consultation entitled "Towards a post-2015 development framework." The goal of the Consultation was to collect views from a wide range of stakeholders on what framework should guide international development efforts after 2015 — and ultimately, to inform the preparation of an EU contribution to the UN process.The Consultation was held between 15 June and 15 September 2012.

Human Dynamics works around the world, on a large number of contracts issued by the European Commission on development related projects. We provide training services and technical assistance on public-funded development projects, especially in the areas of good governance, regulatory affairs and economic management. On a day-to-day basis and within the Framework of the European External Action Service, in particular Europe Aid, our services aim to help developing countries work toward achieving the MDGs.
We have responded to Section A of the Consultation with a general reflection on our field experience, and we have provided specific answers to the points raised in sections B, C and D. Our response has been framed by our experience as an implementing contractor. Read our contribution paper here.
