Can we slash poverty and starvation by 2015? Yes, if we get to work [op-ed]

If global development targets followed a National Football League format, we would be approaching the two-minute warning. December 31, 2015, marks the final deadline for the Millennium Development Goals, the global anti-poverty targets that have mobilized an unprecedented generational success in tackling extreme poverty around the world, most notably the burdens of disease in the poorest countries. We are now facing the final moment to bend the relevant curves of progress. For decision makers, 2013 is the real 2015. [Read more…]

Foreign Affairs article – Condensed history of MDGs

I have an article in the new March/April edition of Foreign Affairs, entitled “Own the Goals: What the Millennium Development Goals Have Accomplished.”  Here is the magazine teaser:

Since their inception in 2000, The Millennium Development Goals have revolutionized the global aid business, using specific targets to help mobilize and guide development efforts. They have encouraged world leaders to tackle multiple dimensions of poverty simultaneously and provided a standard for judging performance. As their 2015 expiration looms, the time has come to bank those successes and focus on what comes next.

Full text also available (for a little while) on my Brookings page and below.

Short ForumLive Interview with Prof Chan Yuen Ying

On Saturday I did a short (if sleep-deprived) ForumLive interview in Davos with Prof Chan Yuen Ying, Director of the Journalism and Media Studies Centre at Hong Kong University.  In it we talked about some of the issues covered in the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Outlook 2013, which includes some commentary from Prof Chan (and my friend Michael Elliott) on the role of journalism in restoring trust in public institutions, plus some commentary from me and Wu Changhua regarding the MDGs and the post-2015 development agenda.

New op-ed & blog on Asia & post-2015 goals

I’m currently in Thailand for the World Economic Forum’s regional East Asia meeting.  Earlier this week I wrote an op-ed that ran in The Bangkok Post, available here under the title “Asia is crucial to ending poverty.” Opening paragraph:Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Amid the economic distress emanating from the United States and Europe, no statistic better captures the broader dynamics of the world economy than the recent World Bank announcement that the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG) to cut extreme poverty by half was met globally in 2010. This was fully five years before the 2015 deadline. The United Nations also recently declared that the MDG governing access to drinking water has already been achieved. While many of the world’s most prosperous nations are clearly struggling, many of the world’s formerly struggling nations are clearly prospering.

I also wrote a similar short blog post that ran a few days ago in The Nation of Thailand (with typo gremlins inserted) and the WEF Forum:Blog, “Goals for Getting to Zero on Extreme Poverty“.  Also available at Brookings website. Opening passage:

Societies around the globe are confronting a daily sense of fragility as economic, environmental and social forces combine to produce surprise after surprise after surprise. There is a common fear that, even in cases of rapid advance, the gains might prove illusory or unsustainable. But the upside of uncertainty is that good news often comes where its least expected.

Tomorrow I’ll be doing a panel that is scheduled for live webcast here.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
