Contexte

With less than 500 days left until the Millennium Development Goals expire, the next steps towards development will be made within the context of sustainability. Global discourse has centered on the idea of creating a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to follow the MDGs in 2015.
 
The 69th Session of the UN General Assembly will meet on 16th September 2014, with the debate beginning on 23rd September. It is anticipated that the forthcoming SDGs will be a central topic in these discussions.
