Global Development Goals: what next?

Mon Apr 07 13:37:00 BST 2014

CDS held a successful and very lively public event on Thursday 3 April debating the future of the Global Development Goals.

As momentum towards a new set of goals for global development after 2015 has gathered pace, the event asked what will follow on from the varied success of the first set of Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). 

With the opportunity to go beyond the MDGs in aspiration and the scope of issues to be addressed, it asked what development challenges this set of goals must address, and what is the state of the current debate over them?

The event was chaired by CDS Director, Susan Johnson and speakers included:
