Move over MDGs- welcome P15A!

At the Millennium Summit in September 2000, 191 UN member nations/ states signed the Millennium Declaration, agreeing to achieve 8 goals by 2015. These goals have come to be known as the Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs for short.

Now in 2015, we will know for sure if those goals are achieved or not.

The larger question, however, is this: “What after 2015?”.

Understandably, world leaders have thought about the aforementioned question.

The UN is working with governments, civil society and other partners to build on the momentum generated by the MDGs and carry on with an ambitious post-2015 sustainable development agenda that is expected to be adopted by UN Member States at the Special Summit on Sustainable Development in September 2015.

P15A refers to the Post-2015 Agenda described above.
