Devex Interviews European Commissioner For Development On Post-2015 Agenda

“At a Brussels event on Tuesday, Andris Piebalgs, the European commissioner for development, presented recommendations by a high-level U.N. advisory panel on post-2015 global development to an audience of researchers, aid officials and representatives from civil society and E.U. member states,” Devex reports, and provides a transcript of an interview with Piebalgs “on the E.U.’s vision, scope and ambitions for the post-2015 development framework and the next steps in reaching international consensus.” According to the transcript, Piebalgs discusses the panel’s approach to developing the 2015-agenda, describes “new initiatives [that] will be launched to overcome the unfinished business of ‘off-track’ Millennium Development Goals,” and examines the role of “south-south cooperation, particularly among developing and emerging economies,” among other topics (Jones, 7/9).
