Post-2015 resources round-up

Post2015.org is collating key recent post-2015 resources and news in a round-up post. Below, read today’s selection:

Copenhagen Consensus Nutrition Papers – As reported in Reuters and in The Wall Street Journal, alleviating stunting can be done relatively cheaply – with a suite of interventions that produce dramatic long-term results. Poorly nourished infants become stunted (being lower than the expected height for age), and fall behind in developing cognitive skills. This lack of development has real long-term consequences. In total, if an individual works until 50 years old, each dollar spent on reducing stunting returns $45.

Development is Thinking Ahead: A World on its Way to Sustainable Development Goals – ECDPM’s Director Paul Engel and Anna Knoll, Policy Officer for our Strengthening European External Action Programme, reflect on the post-2015 discussions so far, taking a bird’s-eye view of what has happened and in what context the post-2015 discussions are taking place.

SIGI Synthesis Report –  The third edition of the Social Institutions & Gender Index captures and measures gender-based discrimination in social institutions − social norms, practices and laws − across 160 countries, testifying to the global nature of gender inequality.

Global goals and international agreements: Lessons for the design of the Sustainable Development Goals – This working paper produced by the Overseas Development Institute draws evidence from over 150 pieces of literature on international agreements to propose lessons for the design of the SDGs.
