The United Nations Secretary-General has established the United Nations System Task Team on the Post-2015 United Nations Development Agenda (Task Team).
Co-chaired by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the United Nations Development Programme, the Task Team assembles more than 60 United Nations agencies and international organizations.
UNCTAD works within the framework of the entire United Nations system to follow up processes related to the Review of the MDGs and the preparations for the post-2015 United Nations development agenda. This entails collaboration and coordination with other United Nations agencies, funds and programmes as well as amongst different divisions and branches of the UNCTAD secretariat.
The work of UNCTAD takes place at three levels:
At the intergovernmental level (General Assembly, Economic and Social Council, Commission on Sustainable Development/high-level political forum, governing bodies of organizations of the United Nations system).
At the United Nations system inter-agency level (including the Executive Committee on Economic and Social Affairs plus, the Task Team and issue-driven networks/platforms).
At the level of all people who look to their leaders to identify and act on the major challenges ahead. (Through civil society organizations, the private sector and academia).
UNCTAD seeks to contribute to the definition of a single and comprehensive post-2015 United Nations development agenda with sustainable development at its core.
