Following on the outcome of the 2010 High-level Plenary Meeting of the General Assembly
on the Millennium Development Goals, the United Nations Secretary-General established
the UN System Task Team in September 2011 to support UN system-wide preparations for
the post-2015 UN development agenda, in consultation with all stakeholders. The Task
Team is led by the Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the United Nations
Development Programme and brings together senior experts from over 60 UN entities and
international organizations to provide system-wide support to the post-2015 consultation
process, including analytical input, expertise and outreach.
