        04:30 PM - 06:00 PM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Poverty Eradication, Roundtable 1: The Global Partnership for Sustainable Development: Participation, Governance and Accountability.
An inclusive and universal agenda is not enough to guarantee full participation in decision-making. It is also critical to ensure full participation in governance and accountability frameworks. In this session we will examine the prerequisites for building an enabling environment that guarantees civil society participation. We will also discuss the role of multi-stakeholder partnerships in strengthening the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development. Most importantly, we will discuss participation modalities that ensure the participation of all relevant stakeholders in governance and accountability frameworks, especially those who are traditionally excluded from decision-making.

        04:30 PM - 06:00 PM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Poverty Eradication, Roundtable 2: Fighting Inequalities – Economic, Social, Political and Environmental.
Currently, we see rising inequalities related to socio-economic status, gender, access to resources and services, erosion of social protection, environmental justice and the increasing marginalization of those living in poverty, even in places where economic growth is robust. At this Roundtable session, we will discuss how these inequalities can be arrested and reversed through effective advocacy and just public policies. In addition, we will examine the need for participatory and robust accountability frameworks, including disaggregated targets, in all global partnerships.

        10:00 AM - 11:00 AM        Security Council: Middle East (Syria)

        10:00 AM - 11:30 AM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Sustainable Development, Roundtable 2: Urgent! Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and Ecosystems.
The post-2015 agenda must address global resource constraints and achieve a more equitable distribution of resources for current and future generations. In this Roundtable we will discuss ways to support economic development while protecting and restoring natural resources. We will explore the balance between sustainable production and consumption with economic development, and the role of the public and private sectors in managing natural resources.

        10:00 AM - 11:30 AM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Sustainable Development, Roundtable 1: The Resource Nexus: Food, Water, Sanitation, Energy.
Food, water and sanitation, and energy are the “resource nexus” at the core of sustainable development and the overarching goal of poverty eradication. The resource nexus is intimately linked with sustainable consumption and production patterns. This relationship, when mismanaged, aggravates resource scarcity and can lead to conflict. This session will explore how to achieve equitable access to food, water and sanitation, and sustainable energy, and address the growing rural-urban divide.

        12:00 PM - 01:00 PM        Noon Briefing and guest: Nicholas Rosellini, Deputy Director of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Bureau for Asian and the Pacific, on findings from a new report on social exclusion in the Pacific.

        03:00 PM - 04:30 PM        (TCC) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Human Rights, Roundtable 1: (Really) Leaving No One Behind.
The post-2015 development agenda must be inclusive and universal. How can women, children, youth, older people, indigenous peoples, people with disabilities, LGBT and other marginalized communities exercise their right to participate in the design and implementation of the SDGs? We will discuss how human rights standards and mechanisms can help underpin the meaningful participation of all people in the national implementation of the SDGs, and in efforts to hold development actors accountable to these Goals. We will also discuss strategies to ensure full transparency and public accountability over the design of national indicators to monitor progress.

        03:00 PM - 04:30 PM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Human Rights, Roundtable 2: Eradicating Poverty: A Human Rights Imperative.
Since the Millennium Summit in 2000, the United Nations, governments, civil society and other stakeholders have been engaged in an historic enterprise to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and are now defining a new sustainable development agenda for 2015-2030. The post-2015 sustainable development agenda should have a more ambitious and universal commitment to end all forms of poverty, everywhere, by 2030.
This Roundtable discussion will explore how to aim for the complete eradication of poverty, including the key elements necessary to irreversibly end poverty, particularly for the most marginalized and vulnerable. Key in achieving this goal will be the involvement of those living in extreme poverty. Poverty is a multi-dimensional human rights issue that encompasses access to and management of resources, capabilities, choices, security and power. The conversation will focus on how the end of poverty can be achieved by promoting human rights and respecting planetary boundaries.

        10:00 AM - 11:30 AM        (CR.1) 65th UN DPI/NGO Conference: "2015 and Beyond: Our Action Agenda" (27-29 August 2014) - Climate Change, Roundtable 2: Climate Justice in Practice.
Climate justice acknowledges that the poor and marginalized are disproportionately burdened by the impacts of climate change. It is also about changing policies that cause climate change and contribute to continued inequalities. Viewed through this lens, climate change threatens the entire post-2015 agenda. At this Roundtable we will discuss how to ensure that climate change does not reverse development gains of households and communities, or hinder their efforts to escape poverty. The session will focus on building resilience and disaster risk reduction with these communities through human and institutional capacity building, access and rights to information, decision-making processes and productive resources, and technology as linked to the post-2015 agenda.

In 2015, the UNFCCC COP 21 in Paris and the launch of the Post-2015 Agenda will culminate within months of each other. This Roundtable will discuss the interlinkages between both processes and the benefits and drawbacks of having two separate tracks in the medium and long terms. Low-carbon development, adaptation, disaster risk reduction and finance will all be considered.
