This e-discussion aims to engage experts, policymakers, practitioners and other stakeholders in a global dialogue on the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) Annual Ministerial Review's (AMR) 2014 theme, ‘Addressing ongoing and emerging challenges for meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015 and for sustaining development gains in the future'. The e-discussion is expected to provide ECOSOC with inputs and policy recommendations on strengthening efforts to achieving the MDGs by 2015 and on sustaining and continuing development gains in the context of the post-2015 development agenda. The e-discussion is divided into three parts. Part I (3-16 February) will focus on ‘Facilitators of development progress, including in the achievement of MDGs'. Part II (17 February–2 March) will address ‘Sustaining development gains through inclusive development'. Part III (3–16 March) will discuss ‘Measuring progress in MDG achievement and beyond'. Contributions are expected to contribute to the UN Secretary-General's report on the AMR theme, regional preparatory meetings and the National Voluntary Presentations. The UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP) have held annual e-discussions on the respective AMR themes since 2008.
