After 2015 – The road towards the next global development agenda

The negotiations on priorities and goals for the new development agenda will lead to an important but difficult debate on where the necessary resources should come from. Many claim that traditional development assistance has played out its role, while others persist that ODA will continue to have a unique role. At the same time, new actors and other flows are growing in importance. Meanwhile, lack of funding remains a major obstacle in the fight against global poverty and environmental degradation. But what do today’s financial flows look like? Is the money really reaching the most vulnerable? How can we best address problems such as capital flight and tax evasion? And last but not least: will the UN member states be willing – and able – to finance the vision they may agree on?

What will it take for the world’s nations to agree and commit to the next set of development goals that are relevant for all? What are the lessons learned from the current MDGs? How can we ensure that the post-2015 agenda is rooted in the needs of the poor?

Focusing on the ongoing work to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and the UN process to formulate the new post-2015 framework, UNDP’s Nordic Office and the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation are jointly organising a seminar series to stimulate the discussion on critical development challenges. Drawing on international experts and civil society organisations, especially from the Global South, we hope to inspire development actors in Sweden, and create a platform for international voices to be heard in the Swedish debate. The seminar series aims to shed light on the the processes and major events leading up to the final formulation of the new global development agenda. The series will run throughout 2013 and into 2014.
