The discussions now under way on a post-2015 development agenda are aiming for an ambitious narrative that goes beyond “business as usual” to establish a more universal, transformative and sustainable approach than the one advanced through the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) (United Nations, 2012). As such, it will play a key role in setting new goals and targets for policymakers, both at the national and international levels.

The international community faces three principal challenges in fashioning this new approach.
