UN-NGLS is pleased to launch the third issue of its Post-2015 Primer Series, focusing on the Intergovernmental Committee of Experts on Sustainable Development Financing (ICESDF). Primer #3 explains the composition, timeline, secretariat, and thematic areas of focus of the ICESDF, and provides detailed information on options for civil society and other stakeholders to engage with the Committee and the formation of its Non-State Steering Committee to interface with civil society and other stakeholders.

The Post-2015 Primer Series has been created with the intention to demystify the post-Rio+20 and post-2015 intergovernmental processes and to help strengthen coordination and coherency between them. UN-NGLS aims to help ensure entry points for civil society seeking to engage with these processes, which are explained through these primers in easy-to-understand terms. The primers will be published in English, French, and Spanish.
