In anticipation of the conclusion of the Millennium Development Goals—the shared global antipoverty targets co-signed by all U.N. member states—a panel of 26 eminent people has been tasked with advising the secretary general and U.N. member states on an ambitious global development agenda beyond 2015. As the High Level Panel’s U.S. representative, Center for American Progress Chair John Podesta is closely engaged in building a new framework that enhances the strong progress of the current goals and that incorporates agreed-upon gaps.
Please join us for a Twitter town hall to discuss the post-2015 development agenda. Podesta will answer questions about his work with the U.N. High Level Panel and will provide an opportunity for the public to engage on the issues that concern them most as the world moves into the next phase of global poverty eradication.
