Dopesheet: Report on post-2015 agenda
The European Report on Development (ERD) 2013 seeks to contribute to the global reflection on the post-2015 development agenda.
Based on an assessment of the Millennium Development Goals experience and on an analysis of the changing international context, and likely trends for the next 20-30 years, the ERD 2013 looks at key potential drivers of a post- 2015 global partnership, to tackle poverty in the poorest countries and promote structural transformation in an inclusive and sustainable manner.
The Report highlights three such drivers: flows of money (development finance), flows of goods (trade) and flows of people (migration). To enrich its analysis, the ERD 2013 draws on case studies carried out by local research institutes in four countries (Côte d'Ivoire, Nepal, Rwanda and Peru).
The Report presents a series of policy recommendations for the international community and global action, in view of supporting the achievement of an ambitious post-2015 agenda. It also presents more specific recommendations for the European Union.
The ERD is an independent report, prepared by a team of researchers from three research institutes: ODI, DIE and ECDPM.
The initiative is supported by the European Commission and seven EU Member States, namely Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Since the turn of the century, the Millennium Develoment Goals have guided global and
national development efforts towards one main objective: eradicating poverty. But as the
deadline for their achievement approaches, we need to review how this international
collective effort can be sustained and improved in a changing global context. So the
question arises: What next?
Since 2009, the European Report on Development, supported by the European
Commission and 7 EU Member States, has explored major development topics,
stimulating the global debate and informing policies. In 2013, this flagship independent
report, drafted by a team of researchers from 3 European development institutes, looks at
how a new post-2015 framework could stimulate global action to promote development
and support the efforts of the poorest countries.
The post-2015 framework will need to adapt to a world that is changing rapidly. Forecasts
of economic, demographic and environmental trends all point to the urgent need for bolder
and more radical approaches to global collective action.
The report highlights the need to take action on three key drivers for development. Firstly,
a new framework will require not only more financial resources, but also new ones and a
better use of existing ones. Secondly, trade and investment are key to support efforts to
diversify economies and create jobs in productive sectors, to reduce poverty and
inequality. And thirdly, the international community should agree on a global migration
Moving beyond the MDGs means setting new objectives for a post-2015 global framework
that go beyond a poverty reduction approach focused mainly on social sectors to integrate
new dimensions related to inequality, employment or sustainability.
But it also means moving beyond the existing instruments to explore the often untapped
potential of international flows such as trade, migration and investment, and support
countries in mobilising greater domestic resources.
In the light of the new challenges, a post-2015 framework for development calls for a more
transformative agenda. If poverty is to be eradicated, we need to tackle its roots. This calls
for economic and social transformations that emphasise creating employment, addressing
inequality and poverty in its various dimensions, and finding sustainable solutions.
To achieve this, it will be key to ensure that global goals relate to national policy needs and
targets, linking national and international efforts in a mutually supportive way.
Global action will also need to be scaled up, for example, in areas such as international
finance, trade, migration and climate change; enhancing policy coherence for
development; and continuing to increase both levels and effectiveness of aid. As part of
this global effort, the EU has an important role to play.
The post-2015 framework needs to build on the experience of the MDGs and keep the
promise of the Millennium Declaration. Together, we can work to achieve an inclusive and
sustainable future for all.
