The discussions on what will replace the Millennium Development Goals after 2015 is entering in a crucial phase. One of the key, cross-cutting issues that are being debated is inequality.
There is broad consensus that inequality is one of the key challenges to be addressed in the years to come. However, many observers have pointed to the technical and political difficulties that need to be overcome to ensure that the post-2015 framework will address inequality and will become a key reference for inclusive growth.
On March 7th, 2013 UNCDF is convening an event that will bring together some of the lead thinkers from within the United Nations, the donors’ community, private sector and academia to discuss about different dimensions of inequality and concrete options for these to be addressed by the set of goals that will guide development efforts after 2015.
The outcome of the meeting will be concrete proposals to be submitted as an input to the on-going post-2015 consultations.
