Beyond2015 Campaign
  • The Overall objective of the Beyond2015 campaign is to develop a shared, global civil society position on the content of the post-2015 framework.
  • The campaign is divided into national hubs – one of them the European Taskforce, which:
    • brings together all 200 European participating organisations in the Beyond2015 campaign
    • also consults closely with the full membership of CONCORD
    • Submitted a contribution to the EC consultation on the post-2015 framework

cyindep s beyond2015 focus
CYINDEP’s Beyond2015 Focus
  • CYINDEP made the post-2015 process its priority during the EU Presidency


    • Good opportunity for Cypriot Civil Society, as it goes beyond national advocacy
    • Unites the civil society organizations – concerns every citizen on the planet, opportunity to strengthen the role/ input of Civil Society
    • Great opportunity to look beyond divisions, such as rich-poor, developed-developing countries
    • Timing: good opportunity to influence process
    • Food Security priority of Ministry of Foreign Affairs for CY EU Presidency

cyindep s beyond2015 focus what did we do1
CYINDEP’s Beyond2015 Focus – what did we do?
  • Collaboration with CY MFA for Global Civil Society Symposium (main Presidency event of CYINDEP) – High Level Panel Discussion, focus on Food Security & Nutrition in Post-2015
    • 100 participants from EU and Global South
    • 1st day: civil society only
    • 2nd day: High Level Panel (CY MFA, Piebalgs, IE MDev, UK DfID, Prince of Lesotho, WFP and UNDP), messages from CS WGs (Day1), discussion; formulation of messages/ recommendations for UN Thematic Consultation
  • Outcomes of Symposium will be submitted to e-consultation on Hunger, Food and Nutrition Security (facilitated by FAO, WFP), feed into global Beyond2015 position for UN Thematic Consultation



  • CYINDEP Team newly hired for Presidency project, limited capacity
  • No prior experience in Food/ Nutrition Security
  • No prior collaboration with MFA
  • Political sensitivities and internal challenges of working with MFA/ Presidency in bi-communal context of CYINDEP
  • Limited time for European Taskforce/ SG of Beyond2015 campaign
  • Almost none of CYINDEP’s members have any experience in food security or post-2015 process
  • Global Civil Society Symposium/ Global Dialogue – half of the participants from non-EU countries could not obtain visa/ necessary transit visa
  • Creation of CYINDEP Taskforce – the only active taskforce
  • Participation in TRIALOG-FoRS Seminar, Beyond2015 Seminar
  • Beyond2015 Team very helpful
  • Presidency Project – funding opportunity for Global Civil Society Symposium, supported by Beyond2015 campaign
  • MFA had no budget or experience, needed CYINDEP as partner
  • Our Global Civil Society Symposium became the ‘prestige’ event of the Minister of Foreign Affairs
  • New working relationship with MFA also enabled CYINDEP to participate in the Informal CODEV Meeting in Cyprus, address the CODEV and disseminate our Policy Paper on Post-2015
  • Now familiar with process and structures – Beyond2015 will remain CYINDEP focus
plans for 2013
Plans for 2013
  • Maintain the Post-2015 process as priority for CYINDEP work
  • Contribute to Beyond2015 positions, participate in Irish Presidency events (April, May)
  • Hold roundtable discussions in different cities of Cyprus, connecting the Post-2015, food/ nutrition security discussion to local realities
  • Potentially continue collaboration/ consultations with MFA
  • Stronger engagement of member organisationsin the process and discussions
