‘Post-2015’ international development goals: Who wants what and why

Emily Benson

Issue paper, 20 pages

2015 will be a watershed year for international development, when the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) framework will be revised, extended or replaced. With less than 1,000 days to go until the MDGs ‘expire’, dialogue among governments and civil society is gathering energy. Is inequality a pivotal issue for global development goals? Can the ‘post 2015 agenda’ simultaneously support action on poverty reduction, environmental health and economic growth? How can the next set of goals replicate the simplicity of the MDGs, yet be more flexible to national conditions and to emerging issues? This paper identifies some of the players, their propositions and the emerging ‘fault lines’.
