The Chapter analyses the post-Millennium Development Goals policy debate to frame a successor framework that is universally acceptable. It looks at the changing global dynamics since the adoption of the MDGs in 2000 and calls for a paradigm shift and rethinking in approach. The author argues that the task of formulating the post-2015 development framework will need to be balanced by a plethora of other global development initiatives that have taken place over the past few years. The analysis points to an emerging framework that must contend with the dynamics of a fast changing world and why it is essential to build a global policy convergence. The chapter highlights on the Common African Position on the post-2015 agenda and some of the key priority issues to be considered in the post-2015 development agenda.
