ODI On... UNGA 2013

17 September 2013 00:00 - 23:59

As the United Nations General Assembly convenes in New York, ODI is collecting views on what the future should hold for the achievement of international development goals – both the present Millennium Development Goals and the future goals being discussed to replace them.

The new Development Progress website is a hub for ideas, debate and resources on what needs to be done to accelerate progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. 

Looking to the future, the My World survey aims to capture people's voices, priorities and views about future development goals. More than 1 million people in 194 countries have participated so far, making this one of the biggest surveys ever carried out.

MY World: listening to 1 million voices

Opinion - Articles and blogs - 25 September 2013
MY World is a global survey about people’s priorities. Less than a year ago, ODI became one of the founding partners, after it was devised by me and Paul Ladd of UNDP. Out of a list of 16 options, people are asked to choose the six that are most important for themselves and their families. There’s also space for people to add a 17th option, if there’s something important that they think isn’t captured by the existing options.

The Millennium Development Goals: one last push

Opinion - Articles and blogs - 18 September 2013
'Over the coming weeks, during and after the UN General Assembly discussions, development experts from around the globe will use our site to add their voices to the debate, providing blogs that aim to answer one key question: what do you see as the single most important thing needed to accelerate progress toward the MDGs?'
Overview
As the United Nations General Assembly convenes in New York, ODI is collecting views on what the future should hold for the achievement of international development goals – both the present Millennium Development Goals and the future goals being discussed to replace them.

Our Development Progress website is being re-launched as a hub for ideas, debate and resources on how the world is doing on the international development goals. The new site launches with a series of articles from development experts (including UNDP’s Shantanu Mukherjee, UNMC’s Charles Abugre Akelyira from UNMC, Renosi Mokate, Andrea Ordóñez, Debapriya Battacharya, Hania Sholkamy, Kevin Watkins, Susan Nicolai and others) on what needs to be done to accelerate progress towards the Millennium Goals.

Looking to the future, the My World survey aims to capture people's voices, priorities and views about priorities for a new development agenda. More than 1 million people in 194 countries have participated so far, making this one of the biggest surveys ever carried out. The survey will have a prominent role at the General Assembly, with a booth for international leaders to offer their views and a number of events and exhibitions aimed at collecting more views and explaining the results so far. The survey is the brainchild of Claire Melamed, Head of ODI’s Growth, Poverty and Inequality Programme, and Paul Ladd of UNDP.
