Post-2015 Development Framework

What should come after the MDGs expire in 2015?

Since 2000, the Millennium Development Goals have provided a global framework for improving the lives of millions of impoverished children, women and men. Significant progress has been made in terms of poverty reduction, reduction of child and maternal mortality and increased access to education. But much remains to be done. As we press hard to achieve all eight goals by 2015, we must also ensure that there is an agreed path forward to create The World We Want. In addition, over the past fifteen years, new challenges have emerged. In most countries, inequality has increased sharply. Environmental sustainability is under threat. Good governance is undermined by vested interests.

As we approach the end of the Millennium Developments Goals, the challenge is to develop a new framework, building on the opportunities and robustly addressing the challenges. What should the new Post 2015 framework look like, how it should be developed and how can governments, the private sector and civil society in Asia can play a strong role?

Listen to a panel discussion about the Post 2015 development framework, featuring speakers from ONE (SINGAPORE), Save the Children and UN Women Singapore. The discussion, held on 15 February 2013, was organised in collaboration with the Singapore Institute of International Affairs. Lower on this page, we also have individual audio clips of each speaker.

Post 2015 MDG Agenda
Are all children given a fair chance to survive and thrive? Millions have benefited from the Millennium Development Goals, but still nearly 7 million children die each year from preventable causes. Let us build on the momentum of the MDGs, writes Michel Anglade, to create a Post 2015 framework that addresses issues of accountability, environmental sustainability, gender and inequality.
