"For more than a decade, the global conversation about development has been dominated by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)," Stewart Patrick, a senior fellow and director of the program on international institutions and global governance at the Council on Foreign Relations, writes in the Council's "The Internationalist" blog, noting, "The global development community is now debating what should replace the MDGs when they expire in 2015." He highlights a report, titled "Post-2015 Development Agenda: Goals, Targets and Indicators," released recently by the Canada-based Center for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), and details 11 goals recommended by the report's authors to replace the current MDGs (11/7).
