UNDP, in partnership with UNFPA, the Ministry of Youth and Sport and NAYORA (National Assembly of Youth Organization of Republic of Azerbaijan) launches the Second Round of Post-2015 National Consultations.
The goal of the second round of Post-2015 consultations is to learn what the citizens of Azerbaijan think about the findings of the Post-2015 national consultations, held in 2013, and development priorities of the government, and their suggestions about the means of implementation of the findings. The first consultation of this year will be held on 23 June, in the 2016 European Youth Capital, Ganja.
The target of “National Consultations in Post-2015 Development Agenda. Dialogue with Civil Society: Young People” is to ensure the participation of the youth who constitute one of the main parts of civil society. This particular consultation will facilitate the discussion on the implementation mechanism of the findings of last year’s national consultions, their deliberation and youth participation and their role in this process.
Although the target group is youth, the thoughts of the people from different fields of interest, ages and social groups will be listened to and considered.
The second round of Post-2015 National Consultations will be held in Guba, the 2014 Azerbaijan Youth Capital and in Baku in the format of a Model United Nations Simulation.
The first round of Post-2015 National Consultations were held last year. The national consultation process is aligned with the development priorities that are articulated in“Azerbaijan 2020: Vision to the Future” strategy document and UN Development Assistance Framework which guides UN programming activity within a five years period. The evidence and suggestions generated by the people was synthesized at the validation workshop on 21 June 2013, co-chaired by the head of the Presidential Administration, Mr. Ramiz Mehdiyev and UN Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative, Mr. Antonius Broek.
