"The attached Guidelines provide ideas for how to promote inclusive consultations with government representatives, NGOs, civil society, community-based organizations (CBOs), indigenous peoples, women and social movements, youth and children, the private sector, among others. They are designed to help UN Country Teams, under the leadership of the UN Resident Coordinators, to formulate their own context-appropriate consultation processes to inform the post-2015 development agenda. The Guidelines are not intended to be an exhaustive and prescriptive rulebook, but rather an instructive text with an array of useful tools and considerations that country teams may adapt to local conditions and realities. Given the unique opportunities and challenges on the ground, it is recommended to pursue partnerships with nationally and sub-nationally active stakeholder networks of civil society, bilateral partners, universities, think tanks, the private sector and public institutions."
