United Nations Foundation

For Support Of Post-MDG Activities

The success of new development goals following the Millennium Development Goals in 2015 will be defined by both process and content: how legitimate and inclusive the process is perceived to be, and how well it catalyzes the global community to achieve bold development outcomes. This grant will support the United Nations Foundation (UNF) to play the role of a neutral facilitator to enhance the U.N. process and negotiations, and mobilize targeted strategic action to ensure that sexual and reproductive health and rights are high priorities in the new international development goals. UNF will facilitate engagement of ideas and voices from developing countries with the U.N. process by, for example, recommending that thought leaders from developing countries gain access to relevant consultations. UNF will also cultivate an informed group of advocates and influencers outside the U.N. by providing periodic "insider" updates on the status of the U.N. process and informing civil society in developing countries of key post-2015 platforms and opportunities. UNF’s Universal Access Project team will pay particular attention to windows of opportunity for engagement and input by reproductive health advocates.

for the U.S. Climate Alliance  
The U.S. Climate Alliance is a bipartisan coalition of governors representing 24 states, with more than 60% of U.S. GDP, 55% of the U.S. population, and 40% of U.S. emissions. These governors are committed to driving the nation’s ambitious climate agenda by working in partnership with each other, the federal government, and the international community. The alliance has an important role to play in implementation of federal climate investment laws by supporting state engagement with federal agencies, supporting the development of state decarbonization plans, and supporting effective deployment of federal dollars to drive decarbonization and community economic development.
