The purpose of this blog is to provide a reference point for Performance Improvement and Certified Performance Technology (CPT) professionals to understand the arena of international development. The goal is to encourage the focus and energies of performance improvement (PI) practitioners to apply HPT/HICD technology in transitioning society development.
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are widely cited as the primary yardstick against
which advances in international development efforts are to be judged. At the same time, the Goals
will be met or missed by 2015.
It's not too soon to consider what comes after the Millennium
Development Goals, say Center for Global Development's Charles Kenny and Jonathan Karver. What
should the MDGs 2.0 look like?
Their paper (link here) builds on a
discussion that has already begun to address potential approaches, goals, and target indicators to help
inform the process of developing a second generation of MDGs or ‘MDGs 2.0.’ The paper outlines
potential goal areas based on the original Millennium Declaration, and the timeframe for any MDGs 2.0.
As well, it attempts to calculate some reasonable targets associated with those goal areas.
