National Hubs - Mexico
Convergencia de Organismos Civiles and ADOC (Alianza Democrática de Organizaciones Civiles) are the leading organisations of Beyond 2015 in Mexico. They will be leading the Beyond 2015 National Hub in Mexico and will organise national civil society deliberations in this country.
A first conference took place on the 15th March 2013. This brought together representatives of the CSO Focus Group, a group of civil organizations which focus on economic, social, and cultural rights. As a reference group for the international network Social Watch in Mexico, the Espacio DESC signed the chapter on Mexico in that network’s international report, which is dedicated to a critical reflection on the development framework based on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
A National Consultation took place on 11-12 April 2013 in Mexico City, with the participation of 25 civil society actors and networks from the Federal District and from the Mexican states of Nuevo León, Michoacán, Oaxaca and San Luis Potosí.
