On the eve of the summit the United Nations will hold from 25 to 27 September 2015 in New York for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda, the World Centre for Sustainable Development (RIO+ Centre) will hold a series of events related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in partnership with the Brazilian Government, starting this June.

The first of these events will take place on 19 June in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The RIO+ Centre will support a meeting on the representation of Mercosul and Chile at the Inter-Agency Expert Group on Sustainable Development Goals indicators (IEAG-SDG). The meeting aims at fine-tuning their countries’ positions regarding the post-2015 agenda in order to gather inputs for the Sustainable Development Goals’ Indicators drafting process.
At the end of the month, the RIO+ Centre will partner with the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) to host the “Data Producers Meeting towards the Post-2015 Development Agenda” in Rio de Janeiro from 29 June to 1 July. Brazilian policy makers and data producers will share their perspectives on Sustainable Development Indicators. This event will focus on garnering information to draft an indicators proposal for the SDGs. The event will also be co-organized by the Institute for Applied Economic Research (IPEA) and the ministries of Planning, Foreign Affairs and Environment.
Additionally, on 30 June and 1 July, there will be a Seminar on Consumption Patterns for Sustainable Development in Brasília, which will discuss the findings of the International Web-Based Consultation on Consumption Patterns for Sustainable Development, conducted by a number of international organizations and research agencies. This event will be led by the Center for Strategic Studies and Management in Science, Technology and Innovation (CGEE), with the Brazilian Business Council on Sustainable Development (CEBDS), the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, and the RIO+ Centre as co-organizers.
