The agenda-setting process for the post-2015 framework was characterized by an unprecedented global conversation involving a wide range of state and non-state actors. 

The intergovernmental negotiations culminated in the adoption in September 2015 of a new and ambitious development agenda, outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

This Policy Brief discusses the importance of including democratic accountability as a fundamental cross-cutting dimension of the SDG framework, in line with calls from from parliamentarians, social movements and interest groups in civil society, and people from all over the world for inclusive, responsive, representative, and participatory decision-making and accountability mechanisms.
