In 2015, the UN's Millennium Development Goals are expiring and the international community will set new goals.The next development goals are extremely important. They will drive priorities and influence up to $700bn in foreign aid over 15 years. This opportunity has energized the international community to set a vision that will make the world better by 2030. The level of engagement is incredible - at the moment, there are more than a thousand proposed goals for the next development agenda!
But which ones should we choose? How do we even begin to prioritize all these suggestions? Which ones can we realistically achieve in the shortest time, with the fewest inputs, and which will do the most good?
The Post-2015 Consensus brings together the world's top economists, NGOs, international agencies and businesses to identify the goals with the greatest benefit-to-cost ratio for the next development agenda. We'll take this information to the top decision makers - UN missions and governments -- to make sure the next goals are based on clear evidence of what will do the most good by 2030.
We all want a better future, so it's important we focus on the goals that are the most effective. Just think, if we could replace a goal that saves one life for every $500,000, with a goal that saves 10 lives for the same amount, how much more good we could do over the next 15 years!
We have a once-in-a-generation chance to set a vision for the future. Let's make the most of it.
