Activities

Many activities were carried out by ABONG for Beyond 2015, both as lead agency and under the framework of Beyond 2015's Policy to Action Innovation Fund Project. Click here to read about ABONG's 'policy to action' activities. 

Some highlights:

  • Civil society deliberations in São Paulo, Brasília, Salvador and Recife in 2013 with the participation of a broad group of various civil society organizations, networks, activists and social movements. More information available in the English and Portuguese reports of these deliberations.
  • Meetings with government to discuss key policy issues arising from national CSO consultations - e.g. see here and here
  • Official request for the Government to establish a National Committee for the implementation of the post-2015 agenda

  • Translation into Portuguese and dissemination of the outcome documents of the Open Working Group (OWG) on SDGs
  • Publication of news and articles on Beyond 2015 on ABONG's website, and organisation of webinars on the post-2015 agenda with national CSOs. One of the meetings focused on the outcome document of the OWG, and in particular on goal 16 (peaceful and safe societies) and the threat of weak language on human rights.
