Background
Turning the Key: the Challenge of Implementation in a Post-2015 Development Agenda

Governments and international organizations across the world have made significant and widespread progress in engineering policies and frameworks to meet burgeoning social, economic and environmental needs. Development approaches have been tested in a global context where implementation modalities contend with a dense and complicated socio-political structure, pressed by multiple crises and instabilities such as the economic downturn, food insecurity, disasters linked to extreme weather events and climate change and the impacts of population dynamics.Looking ahead, the debate for a post-2015 development framework will need to balance globally agreed, locally actionable goals with implementation approaches that move policy to actualization.


MDGs and Other Implementation Frameworks in Mentoring a Successor Development Agenda

In order for the post-2015 development to have any meaningful impact, it is important to take stock of the lessons learned from implementing existing frameworks that have been shaped by the global development stakeholders.


Korea’s Empirical Leadership towards Post-2015

The Government of Korea is well positioned to host a discussion on implementation. It has shown its clear commitment to accelerate the achievement of the MDGs until 2015 through the UNDP-Korea MDG Trust Fund and has supported thinking about the post-2015 agenda through various discussions with academia and civil society, particularly through recent events such as “Asian Perspectives on Post MDGs Development Agenda: Taking Stock, Harnessing Knowledge, Assuming Responsibility” (July 2012), “6th Seoul International ODA Conference: Links between the Global Partnership Implementation and the Post-2015 Development Framework” (Oct 2012) highlighting the outcomes of the Busan HLF-4 in the Post 2015 context, and “the North-East Asian Youth Conference: ‘The World We Want’” (Jan 2013).


The Seoul Post-2013 Conference
「Implemenatation and Implications」

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the Republic of Korea will host an international conference in Seoul on October 7, 2013. The conference will further the post-2015 development discourse emphasizing implementation challenges by bringing together intellectual leaders and leading development practitioners from around the world. The conference will be held in the wake of the September 2013 General Assembly which will focus on efforts made towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals and will precede the 7th Seoul International ODA Conference on October 8, 2013. The insights and analysis presented in this conference will provide a critical cornerstone for the post-2015 deliberations and will further the process to refine the building blocks for an implementation framework to anchor the Post-2015 development agenda.
