This project is intended to help the global community develop a roadmap for evolution in our global framework to galvanise development action and measure results beyond 2015.
The Millennium Development Goals have been immensely effective in galvanising public support for development in donor countries, for mobilising aid resources, and for increasing accountability in many developing countries. In 2015, the current set of targets will expire, and although much progress will have been made, many of the targets will not have been met.
To get a renewed agreement that can best tackle existing problems of global poverty after 2015, it is essential that the post-MDG agenda is developed on the basis of clear analysis of current poverty problems, and of the international agreement most likely to solve them.
The purpose of this project is to provide an evidence base, both in individual sectors, e.g. health and education, and on cross-sectoral issues, e.g. inequality, and propose options for policy makers on how to move forward.
The key questions it sets out to analyse are:
- What would be the aim of a new post-2015 global agreement on development?
- How could a global agreement add value to national level efforts to achieve the same ends?
- What is the type of agreement that would be most likely to provide the right combination of incentives and sanctions to get action to achieve these outcomes?
