"The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) established by the international community in the year 2000 sunset in 2015 and are likely to be replaced by a new global development agenda for the period 2016 through 2030. The “post-2015 development agenda,” as it is often called, has been the subject of an extensive United Nations-led process and debate that may culminate in the establishment of a formal new development agenda at the 69th session of the U.N. General Assembly in September 2015. This In Focus provides a brief overview of the MDGs, the draft “sustainable development goals” that are expected to succeed the MDGs, key events in the development and rollout of the post-2015 development agenda, and issues that may be of particular interest to Congress.
