Coming This Fall: A Community Consultation on the United Nations'
New Development Goals. In November, your Oklahoma City chapter of
the UN Association will convene a public consultation process to seek
community input on the United Nations development goals for the period
2016 through 2030. Plans for the process, which are still being set, include
a public forum as well as an online effort to collect statements of public
opinion related to the UN's global development goals.
Priya Desai, president of our OKC chapter, offered this description: "The
objective of our local event will be to promote public awareness of and public
participation in the UN's global goal-setting process. The consultation process
will focus on four goals in particular – for example, Hunger / Food Security;
Women’s Equality; and so on."
