Malawi on Friday started collecting views from the general public on the post 2015 development agenda in order to assess and build lessons and experiences on the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s).
National Chairperson for the Post 2015 Development Agenda in Malawi who is also a former Vice President of Malawi Dr Justin Malewezi told journalists in the capital Lilongwe that as countries approach 2015, there was need for nations like Malawi to provide a platform for debate to analyze and assess inputs and outputs on the global development agenda.
"We are requesting the public to provide their contributions and priorities in areas of education, health, climate change, good governance, gender equality and water sanitation among others," he said.
Some of the questions include the most important thing for Malawi, what should be improved, and what should be done to improve the quality of life for people over the next ten years
Malawi is among several countries chosen to contribute to the debate and inform the UN Post-2015 discussion.
The consultations which are done across the country will end on February 15th 2013.
