The RIO+ World Centre for Sustainable Development will host an online discussion in Portuguese on the proposals for Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The purpose of the discussion is to receive input from Brazilian Civil Society on the final proposal from the Open Working Group on the SDGs and increase public participation in the Post-2015 development process. Portuguese speakers should feel free to join civil society representatives from across Brazil and provide thoughts and feedback on the draft proposal.
The text in Portuguese will be posted on 25 August for comments for one week. On 1 September follows a general discussion of the issues surrounding the definition of the SDGs, including interventions from key speakers. The RioDialogues discussion will end on 5 September.
Responses are warmly invited from civil society in Brazil, including academia, media, national and international non-governmental and private sector organizations. This is your opportunity to share your experiences and recommendations on the definition of the Sustainable Development Goals for the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The discussion will be guided by several experts. Responses will be consolidated and presented to the Inter-Ministerial Working Group on SDGs and will serve to inform the Brazilian negotiations on the SDGs and the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
We look forward to hearing from you on how to shape the Post-2015 Development Agenda from the Brazilian perspective.
