Jordan is one of the 88+ countries which carried out national consultations worldwide. 10 countries from the Arab region were selected to run the post-2015 national consultations: Jordan, Djibouti, Egypt, Morocco, Sudan, Algeria, Yemen, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon. The Jordanian national consultations have been a lead contributor to the first preliminary report of the UN Development Group (UNDG) issued in March 2013 and entitled “The Global Conversation Begins – Emerging Views For a New Development Agenda”, and also to the UNDG Global report “A million voices: The World We Want”, launched by the UN Secretary-General and UNDG Chair on 9 September 2013.
The Global Report constitutes a milestone in the dialogues to shape the post-2015 development agenda. Its findings have contributed to the UN Secretary-General’s report to the 68th session of the General Assembly in September 2013.
