Rethinking the Millennium Development Goals
In light of the current economic slowdown, the prospect of achieving most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015 looks increasingly slim. Although some important headway has been made in the areas of education and child health, the progress on the goals related to poverty and hunger, gender equality and resource sustainability has been slow.
In this context, there is a need to shed more light on how different groups of stakeholders perceive the MDGs in a broader context of development, and how they identify their objectives and formulate their policy priorities. Hence this research project will conduct a choice experiment survey in seven developing countries around the world.
One of the main tasks in this project is the implementation of the choice experiment design and Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modeling analysis to build the experiment design.
