Regional Ministerial Consultation on Accountability

15 September 2014

Palais des Nations, Room XVII


Monitoring and Accountability for the Post-2015 Development Agenda - The Regional Dimension

The deliberations on the post-2015 development agenda had emphasized the need for strong monitoring and accountability. In addition to accountability at the global and national levels, there were calls for a strong focus on the regional dimension of accountability.

Against this background and upon request of the United Nations Secretary-General, the Regional Ministerial Consultation therefore discussed the possible role of the regional level in the overall monitoring and accountability framework for the post-2015 development agenda, options for the scope and modalities of regional reviews, and the linkages with the global and national mechanisms within a multi-layered architecture.

The event was chaired by the Government of Switzerland and organized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the Regional UN Development Group (R-UNDG) for Europe and Central Asia.

The meeting was a multi-stakeholder event, bringing together representatives from governments, civil society, the private sector, international organizations and academia. The views of different stakeholders collected at the meeting provided a regional input to the intergovernmental negotiations within the UN General Assembly, as well as to the synthesis report of the UN Secretary-General on the post-2015 development agenda which was prepared by the end of 2014.

Мониторинг и подотчетность в контексте повестки дня в области развития на период после 2015 года: региональное измерение

В ходе дискуссий, посвященных повестке дня в области развития на период после  2015 года, подчеркивалась необходимость тщательного мониторинга и подотчетности. В дополнении к подотчетности на глобальном и национальном уровне, также звучали призывы о необходимости обратить особое внимание на региональное измерение подотчетности.

В этой связи и по предложению Генерального Секретаря Организации Объединенных Наций, Региональные министерские консультации были призваны обсудить возможную роль регионального уровня в общей системе мониторинга и подотчетности в рамках повестки дня в области развития на период после 2015 года, возможные подходы к  предмету и методикам региональных обзоров, а также взаимосвязь с глобальными и национальными механизмами в рамках многоуровневой системы подотчетности. Данное мероприятие прошло под председательством Правительства Швейцарии и будет организовано Европейской экономической комиссией ООН (ЕЭК ООН) и Региональной группой ООН по вопросам развития для Европы и Центральной Азии.

В заседании приняли участие представители различных заинтересованных сторон, включая представителей правительств, гражданского общества, бизнеса, международных организаций и научных кругов.

Взгляды и мнения участников встречи были региональным вкладом в межправительственные переговоры в рамках Генеральной Ассамблеи ООН, а также в обобщающий доклад Генерального Секретаря ООН по повестке дня в области развития на период после 2015 года, который был подготовлен в конце 2014 года.

As a substantive basis for discussions at the Regional Ministerial Consultation, we were seeking the view of different stakeholders on regional accountability for the post-2015 agenda through a brief questionnaire with six questions. Interested stakeholders (governments, civil society, private sector, international organizations, academia) were requested to return the completed questionnaire, preferably by Friday, 8 August 2014.
