1. BACKGROUND
Over the past decade, the Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs, have been critical in mobilizing
resources and driving real progress on some of the world’s most pressing problems. With the MDGs’
deadline of 2015 fast approaching, discussion over what should succeed these goals known as the
“Post-2015 development agenda” is an important collective undertaking for anyone concerned with
international cooperation. As this agenda, also referred to as the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs), is being negotiated, there has been a push to utilize international funding for development
more effectively through enabling innovative models of collaboration by a wider group of partners and
stakeholders.
The Post-2015 Partnership Platform for Philanthropy (the Platform) project, focuses on philanthropy’s
input into this developmental landscape by helping grant makers to better understand the
opportunities for engaging in the global development goals processes. It will help to build a collective
voice for philanthropy in the global discussions on the Post-2015 agenda, something welcomed by
many governments. The project will also assist governments and the UN system in comprehending the
added value of philanthropy’s direct engagement, including amplifying the voice and action of their
grantees and partners in determining and achieving international targets and strategies.
Overall objectives of the Consultancy
Supporting the development of the platform activities in Kenya.
