Our vision in motion

SP 2025 Consultation

The Office adopted a transparent and inclusive approach for developing SP2025, starting with a staff and stakeholders’ consultation that ran from December 2018 until the end of February 2019 and continuing with a second public consultation that ran from June until mid-September 2019. Globally, more than 3800 proposals were received through the more than 90 contributions that were submitted in conjunction with several brainstorming workshops.
