The Millennium Goals and Beyond: Reflections on an international development policy agenda after 2015

International Workshop

Bonn, 21.11.2011 bis 22.11.2011


German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)

This workshop, organised by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in cooperation with the Poverty Reduction, Equity and Growth Network (PEGNet) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ), contributed to the discussion about the future of development policy beyond the Millennium Development Goals.

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were drawn up at the dawn of the 20th century as one of the most far-reaching development agendas ever proposed. The premise was simple, but ambitious: by the year 2015, the world’s governments committed to making significant progress toward reducing the worst forms of human deprivation and suffering from the face of the earth. This deadline is fast approaching. In the lead-up to 2015, the international development community is embarking on two parallel processes: on the one hand, evaluating the success of the MDG agenda – were the goals met? – and on the other hand, discussing possible instruments and targets that will provide a framework for development policy after 2015.

The workshop brought together academics from different disciplines and practitioners from development cooperation to discuss four major topics:

  1. The need for a new global development agenda.
  2. Measuring progress towards the goals.
  3. The content of a new global development agenda.
  4. The way towards a new consensus.
