The UNDG Chair, Ms. Helen Clark, opened the first UNDG meeting of the year by highlighting that 2015 would be a huge opportunity to advance the global sustainable development agenda by finding synergies across the big global processes and outcomes around the Third UN World Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction in Sendai, the Third Financing for Development Conference in Addis Ababa, the Special Summit on Sustainable Development in New York, and the Climate Change COP21 in Paris.

The 70th year of the UN system’s existence would also be a historic opportunity to shape the future role of the United Nations so as to ensure that we contribute effectively to the implementation of these major global agendas.
