As part of the moves to develop a post-2015 development framework for the country, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Millennium Development Goals, Dr. Precious Kalamba Gbeneol, is convening a national stakeholders' consultative forum that will also attempt to determine Nigeria's input to the post 2015 UN Development Agenda.
The forum is to take place from May 31 to June 1, in Abuja, a statement from the MDGs office said.
The statement indicated that the forum will consider the document from the recent expert group meeting to chart the way forward for a national agenda that can be infused into the global Post-2015 development framework.
It is expected that the outcome of the national consultative forum will enable Nigeria engage the international community as the world debates the imperative of integrating the social, economic and environmental dimensions of development.
The statement noted that with the 2015 deadline for the attainment of the MDGs fast approaching, the Nigerian government and other stakeholders on MDGs in the country are assessing and taking stock of the successes and failures of the current framework in an attempt to shape and develop an inclusive and holistic post-2015 agenda.
