Welcome, introductions and vision for the workshop

Where do we stand in the post-2015 process? [Molly]

What lessons should we draw from the MDGs: how do the SDGs differ? [Marc]

Initial gathering of ideas: how can we create an enabling environment for polycentric actions, by the widest possible range of governmental and non-governmental stakeholders, to implement the Goals?

The thought here is to identify a range of possible approaches that we can discuss during the rest of the workshop, within the agenda for Saturday or by revising that agenda.
