Live Online Chat - Beyond the MDGs: Perspectives for a Post-2015 Development Agenda

Event | 17 October 2013 Online, 14:00-15:00 Manila time/06:00-07:00GMT

On International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, we look at how a post-2015 development agenda should set to transform the Asia and Pacific in a poverty-free region with opportunities for all.

  • is it feasible to end poverty by 2030?
  • should a post-2015 development agenda focus on more than poverty, hunger and malnutrition?
  • what should replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)?
