About

This SD2015 mini-site is for civil society and other stakeholder organisations, coalitions and individuals that wish to influence the post-2015 development agenda, including the design and implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The site supports advocacy activities at the national, regional and international levels. It does not assume a given level of experience in either the post-2015 development agenda or in advocacy activities. It should equip you with relevant information and tools to enable you to develop and implement an effective post-2015 advocacy strategy.

You are using the online version of the toolkit, navigable using the toolbar above and the tiles and menus within. It comprises:

  • The SD2015 Advocacy Toolkit, which provides information on post-2015 processes ('Part 1') and a step-by-step guide to developing a post-2015 advocacy strategy ('Part 2'); and
  • 'Engaging with the Media', a companion guide to develop your advocacy messages for the media and a wider audience.

To download pdf versions of the advocacy toolkit and media guide, go to the main SD2015 website.

Whether you follow each component and step in turn as a newcomer to the agenda, or only consult those new or relevant to you in order to support a more established programme, we hope it will prove useful to all.

The SD2015 Programme

Sustainable Development 2015 (SD2015) is a multi-stakeholder engagement programme run by Stakeholder Forum and CIVICUS, in collaboration with UN DESA.

SD2015 aims to increase stakeholder participation in the process to negotiate a new global framework to eradicate poverty through sustainable development, known as the post-2015 development agenda. SD2015 provides tools and opportunities for all stakeholders to input to this agenda and help build a more sustainable future, through five focus areas: raising awareness; increasing engagement; empowering stakeholders; coordinating advocacy; and strengthening governance. 

SD2015 is undertaken with the financial support of the European Union. See www.SD2015.org for more information and resources, or to contribute a blog outlining your own post-2015 development agenda advocacy activities.

The SD2015 Advocacy Toolkit has been produced with the support and input of the IFP, and the financial support of the Fondation de France.
