Examining Benefits Of Replacing Millennium Declaration For Post-2015 Development

“Recent thinking around the post-2015 development agenda has focused on the goals and targets of a follow-on set of Millennium Development Goals for the period 2010-2030,” but “another approach to the post-2015 agenda is to think about what would replace the Millennium Declaration itself,” Charles Kenny, a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development (CGD), writes in the center’s “Global Development: Views from the Center” blog. “One big benefit of the approach of leading with the declaration is that the diplomats and world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly could spend their time considering the broad framework for progress over the 2010-2030 period rather than getting bogged down in technical issues of how to measure progress in specific, plausible, numerical, and time-bound indicators across all areas,” he continues and presents a “CGD Essay [as] a proposal for the draft text of such a declaration” (8/15).
