This ODI and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) joint workshop gathered policy makers, civil society, academia and think tanks from across the globe to discuss both the technical and political work needed for a post-2015 agreement. The background paper prepared for the workshop reviewed current thinking and political developments in the debate around the post-2015 agenda and identified four key questions to be discussed at the workshop:
- What would we want a global agreement to do, and how?
- How could an agreement be designed to encourage these changes at global or national level?
- How should a new global agreement link to the national level?
- What kind of politics and coalitions are needed to produce a new global agreement?
