Midrand, South Africa - As part of the global United Nations-led post-2015 development agenda consultations, the first in a series of dialogues on governance, including accountability by governments, concluded in South Africa today.

Ahead of the 2015 deadline to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), this forum opens UN-led consultations with a wide cross-section of society on how governance can be integrated into the world's future development framework.

Involving an unprecedented consultation process, national dialogues with governments, civil society, the private sector, academia and other stakeholders will be held in at least 50 developing countries by early 2013, complemented by global consultations on key themes, including governance, food security, health, education and inequality.

Supported by the Government of Germany, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), dialogues on governance will be held in different regions around the world over the coming months.
