Post-2015 SDGs and the Post-2015 Development Agenda: Background, Issues, Goals

The adoption of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in 2000 was unprecedented: never before had national governments, within the framework of the United Nations (UN), agreed on a comparable list of such extensive and concrete goals, for the most part with an explicit time horizon. Equally remarkable was the level of agreement between civil society organisations, businesses and international organisations, who pledged their support for the MDGs in a broad alliance. Despite conceptual failures and difficulties of implementation the advent of the MDGs can be considered a milestone of international cooperation.

With the deadline for achieving the MDGs running out in 2015, the debates on what set of goals the global community will use to shape international cooperation over the coming years and decades have picked up speed due to the increasing density of global challenges, the crisis of multilateral institutions and bilateral development cooperation and the search for sustainable development paths. Many of these debates and open questions will be channelled over the next couple of years in the discussion on a Post-2015 Development Agenda conducted by the United Nations.
