The objective of this workshop is to have a discussion to explore what post-2015 goals could address from a sustainable development perspective, with a focus on food, water and energy.

A past Bond DEG commissioned report ‘Sustainable Development Goals: Building the Foundations for an Inclusive Process’ demonstrated wide civil society support for some key principles that should underpin a future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) framework, including universality, integration of the three dimensions of sustainable development and transparency. Building on that, the purpose of this discussion is to focus on what principles, components and emphasis are needed from future goals in relation to the themes of food, energy and water and to agree some next steps to take this forward.

The longer term agenda is to work with Beyond 2015 UK to feed in recommendations of substance to both the Open Working Group on SDGs and to the High Level Panel on the post-2015 Development Framework.
