Formatted Abstract/Summary
We commend the UN for its extensive efforts to seek perspectives from people around the world to contribute to the post-2015 development agenda and for recognising the need to include traditionally excluded populations.9 Broad participation should continue as the post-2015 agenda develops to ensure that it tracks with people’s demands. We encourage the UN to ensure that its consultation processes incorporate a focused effort to include a range of marginalised communities, whenever possible through local partnerships enabling communities to benefit from this engagement beyond the consultations themselves. The UN and Member States should pay particular heed to their messages, how they can be incorporated into the post-2015 agenda, and how these communities can engage in local and national development and political processes.
