Eight Key Issues for a Post-2015 Global Development and Sustainability Agenda

The international community is presently engaged in a major conversation to shape a new global development agenda, which will succeed the current Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that conclude at the end of 2015. World leaders, civil society organisations and the business community are calling for an ambitious, long-term agenda to improve people’s lives and protect the planet for future generations.

2014 is a decisive year for the elaboration of new global development and sustainability goals that will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2015. Numerous global problems and crises of the last decades remain unsolved and new problems continue to emerge. Countries in both the Global North and Global South face common challenges, such as growing social inequity, continued and increasing environmental degradation, growing resource consumption and the aftermath of the financial, economic and food crises, as well as the intensifying of climate change.

Post 2015 Development Agenda. After almost two years of information gathering from around the world, the Post 2015 process is moving towards the stage in which member states negotiate the final content of the Goals. Recently, Mr. David Donoghue, Permanent Representative of Ireland, and Mr. Macharia Kamau, Permanent Representative of Kenya, were appointed co-facilitators to move the process forward. At the same time, this year’s President of the General Assembly will organize a series of events on “Delivering on and implementing a transformative post-2015 development agenda.” It is an important time for civil society to encourage governments to come to the realization that people must come before economic gains and that we live on a planet with limited resources Learn More

It's easy to get started creating your website. Knowing some of the basics will help.

What is a Content Management System?

A content management system is software that allows you to create and manage webpages easily by separating the creation of your content from the mechanics required to present it on the web.

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. The Joomla! software brings together the template and the content to create web pages.

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name.

Log in to the administrator using the username and password created during the installation of Joomla.

Logging in

To login to the front end of your site use the login form. Use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles.

In managing your site, you will be able to create content that only logged-in users are able to see.

Creating an article

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Template and modules

The look and feel of your site is controlled by a template. You can change the site name, background colour, highlights colour and more by editing the template options. In the administrator go to the Template Styles and click on My Default Template (Protostar). Most changes will be made on the Options tab.

The boxes around the main content of the site are called modules. You can change the image at the top of the page by editing the Image Module module in the Module Manager.

There is much more to learn about how to use Joomla! to create the web site you envision. You can learn much more at the Joomla! documentation site and on the Joomla! forums.
