CAFOD have engaged extensively in the post-2015 arena, as co-chairs of the Beyond 2015 campaign and as an independent agency.
Drawing on the dozens of meetings, reading and engagement CAFOD have had in recent months, the first part of this paper synthesises their understanding of what is currently being planned on post-2015 policymaking, focusing particularly on the official UN process. The second part of the paper gives their analysis of what might actually happen – offering three stylised scenarios: “last minute rush”, “all things to all people” and “the bell curve”. The final section argues what this means in advocacy terms.
Given the political economy and policy landscape of post-2015 as we find it in spring 2012, CAFOD lay out their current policy lines on the question of what should come after the Millennium Development Goals.
