CBM and Post MDGs

CBM encouraged the conference participants to think beyond MDGs 2015.
CBM and CBM Nossal Institute Partnership consisting of Dr. Kirsty Thomson (CBM Australia Director – Inclusive Development), Lucy Daniel (CBM Australia Policy Officer), Murali Padmanabhan (CBM South Asia Inclusive Development Officer) and Sirin Atsilarat (CBM Central East Asia Capacity Development Officer – Disability Inclusive Development and Advocacy) conducted a workshop on 'Beyond 2015 – The International Framework Post MDGs'.

The workshop stimulated the participants to start considering what they would like to influence in the post 2015 agenda and how they may do so particularly in alliance between agencies on advocacy around the post 2015 agenda.

The CBM position paper on the post 2015 agenda was also promoted and distributed to the participants.
