Building the Post-2015 Development Agenda 

In September, leaders will meet at the UN to launch the new Sustainable Development Goals, which will form the focus of global policy making until 2030. These goals follow on the heels of the Millennium Development Goals, which are set to expire this year. The SDGs are incredibly ambitious, and they are a tremendous opportunity for citizens in the US to get involved.

Join Dr. Martin Edwards for an inside look how the post-2015 development agenda is being built. Dr. Edwards will recap the experience with the MDGs, discuss the proposed new goals, as well as the forthcoming talks in Addis Ababa regarding Financing for Development.


 A frequent commentator on global events, Edwards has received numerous awards for his work as an advisor and a teacher. He is a recipient of the Salgo-Noren Teaching Award and the University Teacher of the Year, and he has been a university nominee for the Carnegie Foundation / CASE U.S. Professor of the Year.
