The 2013 GMC: “Making the MDGs Work – From Advocacy through Implementation to Acceleration and Beyond” will be held in Bogotá, Colombia from 27 to 28 February 2013. The conference is expected to further maintain momentum towards the MDGs while also allowing for reflection on the lessons learned from the countries’ own experience that will be useful for a development agenda beyond 2015.
Day 1 will focus on MDG breakthroughs and on practical measures to accelerate progress. It will also feature an MDG Expo, which will showcase the catalytic contributions of UNDP around the globe to support countries to achieve and accelerate MDG progress.
Day 2 will be dedicated to a discussion on how the MDG agenda was adopted and/or adapted at the country level, measuring gaps and inequalities, monitoring progress, and the lessons learned as well as the unfinished business of the MDGs that will influence a new global agenda beyond 2015.
