Our Partners: Beyond 2015 and ACTED (Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development)
Beyond 2015 is a global civil society campaign, pushing for a strong and legitimate successor framework to the Millennium Development Goals.
The campaign, created in 2010, gathers more than 900 organisations around the world. It ranges from small community based organisations to international NGOs, academics and trade unions. A founding principle of the campaign is that it is a partnership between civil society organisations from the ‘North’ and the ‘South’ – bringing together groups from developing, emerging and developed economies.
Since September 2013, the IFP, Beyond 2015, CAN International (Climate Action Network) and Participate have been working together to influence the creation of a framework for post-2015 development with common goals:
- Create a civil society position on the post-2015 framework to be used as a tool for lobbying at national and international levels.
- Create specific and concrete political demands for national governments to influence their positions on the issue of post-2015, and use of such claims continuously and consistently to work with and influence governments.
- To carry the voices of those directly affected by poverty and injustice and share their views on the post-2015 future framework.
By joining forces, these networks contribute to the success and scope of this work of local and regional international advocacy with civil society organisations on the five continents.
ACTED is a non-governmental organization with headquarters in Paris, founded in 1993. Independent, private and not-for-profit, ACTED respects a strict political and religious impartiality and operates according to principles of non-discrimination and transparency.
In the framework of a project financed by the European Union aiming at supporting regional networks from Western and Central Africa, the IFP and ACTED joined to make a mapping and a radiography of member platforms of the REPAOC and REPONGAC, regional coalition members associate of the IFP.
On the long term, this project will allow the promotion and support or regular multi-stakeholders dialogues, but also to support Western and Central Africa regional networks’ participation on issues of common interest and have a significant impact on the decision process at the regional and global scale.
