Southern Voice – First Approximations on Post-MDG International Development Goals

The Southern Voice on Post-MDG International Development Goals (Southern Voice) is a network of 48 think tanks from South Asia, Africa, and Latin America that has identified a unique space and scope for itself to contribute to the post-MDG dialogue. By providing quality data, evidence, and analyses that derive from research in the countries of the Global South, these think tanks seek to inform the discussion on the post-2015 framework, goals, and targets, and to help give shape to the debate itself. In the process, Southern Voice aims to enhance the quality of international development policy analysis, strengthen the global outreach capacity of Southern think tanks, and facilitate professional linkages between these think tanks and their respective governments.

Southern Voice organized an expert group meeting in Dhaka on 11-13 January 2013 to set the agenda for the initiative. The present document draws on the proceedings of the meeting and is being forwarded to the United Nations Secretary General’s High Level Panel on the Post-2015 Development Agenda for its consideration. The document focuses on five key themes concerning the on-going discussions on the post-2015 development agenda, namely, (i) Framework Issues, (ii) Reflections on the Unfinished Agenda, (iii) Issues for the Future, (iv) Partnership and Resource Mobilisation, and (v) the On-going Consultations and the Southern Voice.
