Blog Posts from OPHI, Young Lives Explore SDGs as UN Summit Gets Underway

25 September, 2015

In posts ahead of the UN summit for the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda, two ODID academics give their perspectives on the proposed new Sustainable Development Goals on the ODID blog, Debating Development.

Paul Dornan, Senior Policy Officer at Young Lives, asks whether the SDGs will advance progress for disadvantaged children, suggesting accountability will be key.

Meanwhile, Sabina Alkire, Director of the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI), argues for a Global Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) to be embedded in the new development framework.

The summit gets under way in New York today.
