Abstract

The MDGs represent a concerted project that gave birth to unprecedented synergetic efforts. Ever since their enunciation, they became the focus of political discussions and actions in the field of economic and social development, meetings and conferences were held regularly in order to reaffirm their importance, their effort and to evaluate the accomplished progress. Among the Goals, the creation of a global partnership for development is often considered the weak link in the chain, whether in relation to the difficulties for the main actors of the cooperation for development policies to converge on common goals through constructive dialogue aimed at efficient and effective actions, or for the need to define new forms of cooperation that would start from the comparison and the involvement of the non-institutional actors of civil life. In this perspective, the UN urged the adoption of a public and a participatory process bottom-up aimed at analyzing the progress and the achievements in relation to the development and the elaboration of new proposals, in such a way as to shape the priorities by creating a stronger sense of belonging to the community. For this purpose, a series of consultations has been initiated to meet the request for greater participation in the formation of a new agenda for the post-2015 development, which is an innovation and an achievement for the adopted methods and for the aroused interest. This research aims to analyze what the contribution of these consultations to the global debate is, which help to reveal people's priorities and to provide key inputs to the discussion of a post-2015 future development program. At the same time, it explores the potentialities of a synergic cooperation as the fundamental link between international development cooperation, decentralized cooperation and territorial cooperation, a source of renewal in the conception of development based on participation, rights and freedoms, strengthening territorial capacity in the global context and the creation of a network of exchanges that constitute the platform for the construction of new multidimensional development policies.
