Development cooperation beyond 2015 will have to increase and continue to support developing countries.

That's one of the key goals being discussed on Wednesday during a meeting of the General Assembly.

The event will focus on strengthening and improving development cooperation in the context of the post-2015 development agenda, a process led by the UN to help define future global development goals.

Afaf Konja, Spokesperson of the President of the General Assembly, briefed the press ahead of the meeting.

” The event will promote the scaling up of the impact of all forms of cooperation in the post-2015 development agenda, and promote the urgent implementation of commitments under the global partnership for development. “(0'13")

The use of Information and Communication Technologies as a means to sustainable development will also be discussed.

Ms Konja reminded that 1.1 billion homes still don't have internet access today.
