With the target year to achieve the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) 2015 approaching, discussions on the post-2015 international development framework and the specific indicators are underway.
Against this backdrop, JICA-RI has been implementing a research project on the theme of “Evidence-based Analysis for the Post-2015 Development Strategies.” This report, a compilation of the findings of the project, highlights two concepts in framing the post-2015 agenda— “inclusiveness” and “resilience”, which have become the focus of attention in international development discourses. Another premise of the report is the centrality of the concept of human security, an area in which the Japanese government has taken the initiative. The report attempts to assess the status of achievements of MDGs, to analyze the remaining challenges, and to offer recommendations on the post-2015 development framework.
