Moving from the Millennium to the Sustainable Development Goals

Moving from the Millennium to the Sustainable Development Goals

The recent book “Moving from the Millennium to the Sustainable Development Goals” edited by A/Prof Sefa Awaworyi Churchill (School of Economics, Finance and Marketing) evaluates the factors that contributed to the success or failure of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and the SDGs.

This book presents a collection of chapters that examine various dimensions of development. Between 2000 and 2015, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) remained the overarching development framework that governed the international development community. After a decade and half of commitment to the MDGs, the framework is widely considered a success, although progress reported across countries has been uneven.

The new overarching international development framework may not be successful or present the best opportunities for the desired global change without a better understanding of factors that contributed the most or the least to the attainment of the MDGs.

The chapters presented in this book provide discussions and insights into understanding these factors better. They represent a collection of scholarship that address some of the important questions in international development. They adopt a wide range of research methods to provide insight into what works, and what does not, in promoting the stipulated development goals.
