This book discusses the evolution of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and development policy and asks what happens after 2015? Framed around the MDGs, which are core to the new global development studies agenda MDGs are a very complex set of goals, targets and indicators.
This book orientates students to the what/when/how of the goals. It has an economic rather than a socio-political emphasis, which reflects the MDG’s placement of poverty reduction at the centre of development policy.The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have played a major role in focusing policy since their original incarnation in the mid to late 1990s but what happens when we no longer have the MDGs – what will guide policy after 2015? This book discusses the world and development policy up to and beyond 2015.
