With the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) set to expire in 2015, the process for devising a new
framework to succeed the current global agreement is quickly gaining momentum. At the international
level, considerable discussion has taken place among governments, civil society organizations and
academics to ensure that the interests of all stakeholders are represented. The Canadian Council of
International Co-operation (CCIC) and the Canadian Association for the Study of International
Development (CASID) have partnered to bring international development, environment, and human
rights practitioners and academics together to help shape Canadian civil society’s response to the global
development framework. This conference report summarizes the main issues discussed, assessing the
progress we have made, the weaknesses and criticisms, and outlining the lessons learned to guide us in
establishing a new framework that will succeed the MDGs.
