Social Developments and MDGs
Breaking Through to Sustainability
Post 2015 Development Agenda
We ask ourselves if this World is what we dreamed of 20 years ago. What on earth happened for the last 20 years. We are now facing deficits and mysteries in development that could not be solved by any development strategy.
Many are asking: why, despite all the poverty alleviation strategies, there are still 1.9 billion people in the world who were “left-behind" in extreme poverty? What went wrong?
The answer is staring at us right in the eye: Those “left-behinds” – the hungry, illiterate,uneducated, unhealthy, sick, jobless, homeless and landless – were already leftbehind right from the formulation of goals and targets of the MDGs.
Let us not do it again with the Post 2015 Development Framework.
