Reports & Research
World Federation of United Nations Associations, May 2013
This issue aims to invite the reader into an imaginary UN conference room, where leading global opinion makers from different sectors have gathered to share their views on the post-2015 process. Contributing authors include UNDP Administrator Helen Clark, the Liberian Head of State and Co-Chair of the High Level Panel on Post-2015 President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Unilever CEO and High Level Panel Member Paul Polman.
IDS, Beyond 2015 and UKAid, March 2013
Key recommendations based on the findings of the research with people living in greatest poverty and those who are most marginalised.
Claire Melamed and Emma Samman, April 2013
The authors argue that addressing inequality should be central to the post-2015 development framework. Their paper says inequality must be approached on multiple levels: within countries, among nations, and between generations. Tracking inequalities – for example, the progress of the poorest quintile of the population – is important, but to actually reduce inequality, we must reduce the structural inequalities that cause poverty, they say.
United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR), April 2013
This synthesis report provides countries and all stakeholders with an overview of the issues emerging to date on the consultations and development of a post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction (HFA2). The key purpose of this report is to provide the basis for continued consultations, and to inform a draft HFA2 following the Fourth Session of the Global Platform in May 2013.
Protect my Future: A series of papers on child protection in the post-MDG agenda
Terre des Hommes believe that Child Protection and child rights must receive due policy priority in this Agenda. This is an ambitious objective that needs common efforts by child rights defenders. Under the lead work of the NGO “Family for Evey Child”, a group of NGOs joined efforts to produce a series of six thematic position papers aimed at influencing the post-MDG agenda. Terre des Hommes contributed to that common work. They invite any organisation involved in the post-MDG debate to make use of them to promote development based on child rights.
Neva Frecheville and Bernadette Fischler (CAFOD), March 2013
This paper on the post-2015 agenda looks at the value-add of a global development framework, contributing to the discussion to define the post-2015 agenda. It looks in detail at the values CAFOD believes the framework should be built on to take us towards a shared vision for global development. The paper shows how this can be practically done by suggesting example goals which embody those values, including empowering governance, equitable economies, and resilient livelihoods. Finally, it makes a suggestion on the framework architecture, and how indicators can link across goals to ensure that no goal can be left behind while the others make progress.
Center for Economic and Social Rights, 2013
To be effective in meeting the new and persistent challenges of our time, CESR believes any future sustainable development framework should be anchored in the essential human rights principles of universality, interdependence, equality, participation, transparency and accountability, and in the duty of all states to guarantee at least minimum essential floors of rights enjoyment, to use the maximum of their available resources to progressively realize rights for all, and to engage in international cooperation for this purpose.
Douglas Brooks, Kaushal Joshi, John W. McArthur, Changyong Rhee, Guanghua Wan, January 2013
The paper discusses key challenges faced throughout the Asia and the Pacific region as a number of its developing economies graduate from low-income status to middle-income status at the same time as the region remains home to the majority of the world's poor people and a number of fragile states. The region is gaining increased influence in the world economy but is still grappling to overcome interrelated challenges of poverty and sustainable development, so its priorities will be of significant importance in informing the contents of any post-2015 global development framework.

Global health currently finds itself in an exciting, almost bewildering, state of flux. A plethora of initiatives, statements, high-level meetings, and other activities are generating a continuous flow of new ideas, with the impetus at least partly driven by the advent of the 2015 target date set for the Millennium Development Goals that were adopted in 2000. Whatever shape the post-2015 global health landscape may eventually take, it is already clear that there will be new targets of some kind as the world tries to make further progress on some of the less tractable health issues.
Center for Economic and Social Rights (CESR), April 2013
This briefing argues that human rights principles provide concrete guidance as to how goals and targets are framed and how common but differentiated responsibilities are defined. They also set parameters for how the new commitments are implemented and resourced, how progress is measured and how accountability for the delivery of an effective and just 21st century sustainable development framework can be ensured.
UN System Task Team on the Post-2015 UN Development Agenda, March 2013
This report reflects the shared understanding of and contributions by all members of the UN System Task Team in a genuinely collaborative process, including the preparation of ten individual think pieces on the various themes that are part of the discussion of global partnerships.
Asia Development Alliance (ADA), March 2013
From the 31st of January to the 2nd of February 2013, Bangkok-Thailand, over 70 participants from various human rights and development organizations participated in the inaugural meeting of the Asian Development Alliance (ADA). This is the official statetment that was produced at this meeting.
My World, 2013
This is the 2nd MY World Summary of Results report which was presented the High-Level Panel Meeting in Bali on 25th March 2013. The report provides information on the current findings at a global and regional level, and some information on the partnerships that have made MY World possible – the prject has just hit over 250,000 votes and counting.
Children in the post-2015 agenda
Family for Evey Child, 2013
Under the lead work of the NGO “Family for Evey Child”, a group of NGOs joined efforts to produce a series of six thematic position papers aimed at influencing the post-MDG agenda. You can download the thematic papers here:
Katharina Stepping, 2013
It is unclear how health will be positioned in the post-2015 development agenda. Health already plays a dominant role in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Likewise, funding for health has risen considerably since 1990. For the design of a future agenda, it is important to understand the motives for the provision of health assistance and whether health MDGs have had an impact on health aid.
Clara Brandi, Carmen Richerzhagen and Katharina Stepping, 2013
Sector policies regarding water, energy and land are intertwined, particularly in their trade-offs. Policies for one sector often entail consequences – externalities – for the other two sectors, be they on a local, national, regional or global scale. These interconnections add to current pressures on water and land as well as on resources that fuel our energy system, and will thus exacerbate existing scarcity problems, as the demand for food, water and energy is expected to rise by 30–40 per cent by 2030.
Frederick Boltz, Will R. Turner, Frank Wugt Larsen, Imme Scholz and Alejandro Guarín, 2013
The idea that environmental concerns can be subordinated to economic growth disregards the fact that our society and economy are bound by a natural biophysical system that sustains life on earth. But human society and nature operate on different time scales: while solutions to human suffering are required now, environmental policies must address the long-term effects of today’s economic actions. The welfare of people today is important, but the welfare of future generations matters too: their fates are intertwined.
Markus Loewe, 2012
The majority of the MDGs refer to improvements in the wellbeing of individuals, they are thus final goals of human development (education, health, access to water) to be measured at the micro-level. The SDG agenda also involves such goals (clean air, biodiversity), but also ones that refer to the preservation or establishment of global public goods (limiting climate change, financial stability) that can thus only be measured through macroindicators. The latter are not objectives, but preconditions for sustainable development that for reasons of consistency should not enter into one agenda with final goals. Some of these are already addressed by MDG 8 (among them a fair financial and world trade system).
United Nations Development Group, March 2013
This report offers a snapshot of the current stories emerging from a global exercise in listening to people's perspectives and priorities. It represents an effort by the UN to reflect on preliminary results for the Secretary-General's High-level Panel of Eminent Persons o the post-2015 Development Agenda, as well as the Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals.
Contributions to the UN Thematic Consultations
Beyond 2015, March 2013
Many Beyond 2015 participating organisations have followed the call to coordinate a Beyond 2015 position paper which will input to each of the nine themes of the UN thematic consultation. You may view the full list of organisations and position papers, or use the following links to download a specific paper.
The European Commission presented on 27 February the Communication ‘A Decent Life for All’ which outlines the Commission’s position on the post 2015 development agenda and will serve as basis for discussion among the 27 EU Member States as they try to reach agreement on a common position prior to the UNGA Special Event in September 2013.
Beyond 2015 input into UN thematic consultations
Beyond 2015, March 2013
Lead agencies and drafting teams have been finalising Beyond 2015 position papers for the 11 UN thematic consultations. Recent papers which have been finalised include water and sanitation, governance and population dynamics.
Please note that all Beyond2015’s position papers can be found on this website.
UNICEF, March 2013
Businesses have played an important role in contributing to the MDGs but in order to help create a world fit for children, they must go further. This briefing identifies the steps that businesses should take to maximise their impact on development and the role that the UK Government must play to support responsible business behaviour.
Since September 2012, Beyond 2015 and the Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) have been creating a global civil society position on a post-2015 framework. This is happening through a series of national, regional, and community civil society deliberations that are currently ongoing. So far, civil society deliberations are planned in 40 countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. In a review of the deliberations that have taken place so far around the world, we have received reports from 22 countries about community, regional and national deliberations. This report is the synthesis of these outcomes.
Tim Wilson, Februrary 2013
Most of the major developed countries that Australia negotiates with in international climate talks – the Umbrella group of non-European developed countries – have not ratified a second commitment period under Kyoto, including Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Russia.
Simelane & Chiroro, Februrary 2013
What will replace the MDGs? In analysing this question, this brief evaluates Africa’s vulnerability to the shrinkage of resources that had been allocated for development through a grand world strategy such as the MDGs. In the post-2015 development agenda, Africa expects to play a critical role in areas such as agriculture, which has the potential to reduce poverty and hunger.
EuroNGOs, October 2012
The European NGOs for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, Population and Development (EuroNGOs) is a European network of nongovernmental organizations working on sexual and reproductive health and rights issues in development cooperation and global policy. EuroNGOs is for a sustainable world without poverty where all individuals enjoy good sexual and reproductive health and well-being and are empowered to exercise their sexual and reproductive
health and rights (SRHR).
Saferworld Briefing, Februrary 2013
This briefing paper presents options for goals, targets and indicators that could help address conflict and violence as part of the post-2015 development framework. It builds on a series of three Saferworld Issue Papers entitled ‘Addressing conflict and violence from 2015’.
Sabina Alkire and Andy Sumner, Februrary 2013
This brief considers what the Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI), reflecting acute multidimensional poverty, could offer in the context of the post-2015 MDG discussions.
George Ndungu, January 2013
