Claire Melamed, from the Overseas Development Institute, has published a new report on inequality entitled Inequality in post-2015: focus on the targets, not the goals? Its key messages include:

- A useful approach would be to focus on targets to incentivise and monitor action on specific inequalities.
- These could potentially include targets aimed at narrowing the gaps in income, health, education and other outcomes, and targets to open up political decision making.
