In her capacity as the Secretary-General’s Special Advisor on the Post-2015 Agenda, Amina Mohammed has been one of the main brokers in the ongoing negotiations for the world’s future framework on sustainable development. The objective of the press conference is for Ms Mohammed to debrief journalists about the latest developments surrounding the Post-2015 deliberations which will consist of three upcoming milestones: the Financing for Development Conference which will take place in Addis (13-16 July), the SDG Summit during the General Assembly in New York (25-27 September), and the COP21 Conference in Paris later this year (2-13 December). With regard to the summits in Addis and New York, Ms Mohammed will in particular shed more light on the recent release of the zero drafts accompanying the Financing for Development Conference and the SDG Summit, and will speak to how these might feed into the expected outcome of the COP21 Conference.
