“The North-South Institute, in partnership with the University of Ottawa’s School of International Development and Global Studies, is organizing a special event on the future of global development goals on 14th of November.
The event will take stock of the Post-2015 Development Agenda and bring together a range of perspectives on what the priorities for the next set of global development goals should be.
In the year 2000, world leaders adopted the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of targets for development and poverty reduction to be reached by 2015. Over the past decade, the MDGs have become a central reference point for aid and international cooperation, not only providing a compelling vision for international development, but also a set of quantitative benchmarks against which development progress can be measured. As the 2015 end date for the MDGs approaches, the world is asking: what should come next?
This must-attend event is free and open to the public. We encourage students, policymakers, members of the public and private sectors, media, civil society organizations and engaged citizens to join our unique panel for a lively discussion, which will deepen our understanding of the goals that will frame global development in the decades beyond 2015.”
