Announcement from Wednesday, 15 August 2012
IISD Reporting Services is pleased to announce the launch of the listserv:
The primary objective of this listserv is to provide a mechanism for distributing information on activities in the processes leading up to the establishment of the post-2015 development agenda. Submissions to the listserv should contain information about reports, meetings and other inputs or announcements related to the development of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after 2015, and the High-level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, and regional and national consultations on the post-2015 agenda, among other related activities. The listserv will be managed by IISD and information on United Nations activities will be provided in cooperation with the UN system agencies, funds and programmes through the United Nations System Chief Executives Board for Coordination (UN CEB) Secretariat.

IISD is currently seeking partners and donors as we develop other knowledge management tools to assist key stakeholders in tracking the numerous and diverse internationally-relevant activities related to setting the post-2015 development agenda. The project (similar to our Climate Change Policy & Practice, Sustainable Energy Policy & Practice and Biodiversity Policy & Practice projects) will include tracking news and activities through a publicly-accessible knowledgebase on the related processes, and building an information dissemination mechanism useful to the relevant stakeholders in coordinating their activities. Interested partner organizations and donors should contact Kimo Goree, IISD Vice-President and UN Liaison at email@example.com
