The challenge of measuring SDG 16: What role for African regional frameworks? – This ECDPM discussion paper examines how SDG 16 should be measured to encourage positive improvements, argues that a better understanding of the targets is required, and argues the African Peer Review Mechanism offers a means to track local thinking and innovation in governance and security.

Post 2015: how to reconcile the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)? – This DIE briefing paper by Markus Loewe looks at the two independent UN working groups which will be created: One to discuss whether there should be a new global development agenda after the term of the MDGs ends in 2015, and what such an agenda should entail; the other is to compile a list of possible SDGs. This raises the question what happens if these separate processes actually result in two differing sets of goals, and if it might still be possible to merge the poverty and sustainability agendas.
