EGM on Rethinking and Strengthening Social Development in the Contemporary World, 17-18 July 2014

The Division for Social Policy and Development (DSPD) is organizing an Expert Group Meeting (EGM) on “Rethinking and Strengthening Social Development in the Contemporary World: Progress in advancing social development and lessons learned” at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on 17 – 18 July 2014.

The meeting is convened in the context of draft resolution E/2014/26, in which the Economic and Social Council decided that the priority theme for the 2015-2016 review and policy cycle of the Commission for SOcial Development shall be “Rethinking and strengthening social development in the contemporary world”.

The outcome of the meeting will be an important input to the preparation for the 53rd session of the Commission scheduled to take place in February, 2015. The theme of the 2015 and 2016 sessions provides an opportunity for the Commission to assess what have been achieved so far, and rethink and strengthen social development in the context of attaining sustainable development in the post-2015 framework, as well as in following up the commitments made at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012 (Rio +20).  2015 also marks the 20th anniversary of the World Summit for Social Development, held in Copenhagen in 1995.
