In this Policy Note, the Committee for Development Policy proposes principles and policy alternatives for a post-2015 development agenda, in the light of consideration of lessons learnt from the Millennium Development Goals experience and the key development challenges that have emerged in recent years. It suggests a general contour of a transformative framework with broader, more nuanced and context specific development strategies. The Policy Note will contribute to efforts by the international community to find effective solutions for development issues.



The United Nations development strategy beyond 2015

The 21st century began with a new consensus — that ending poverty is the central purpose of development. Supported by an unprecedented political commitment to international cooperation, the 2000 United Nations General Assembly adopted the Millennium Declaration, which outlined three central objectives of the global community for the 21st century: development and the eradication of poverty; peace and security; and democracy and human rights. Accordingly, world leaders pledged to “spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty”.
