Join us for a conversation with United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson that will focus on the evolving development landscape, particularly on ways to incorporate governance and rule of law in the post-2015 development agenda. Deputy Secretary-General Eliasson will offer his perspective on how to build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as well as ways that the UN system is adapting its priorities to meet today's development challenges.
