Post-2015 process: What comes after the MDGs?

The United Nations is currently leading the debate on what should follow the Millennium Development Goals when they expire in 2015.

We are working to ensure that the post-2015 framework explicitly addresses the rights, needs and aspirations of older people. One that does not cannot be considered legitimate nor will it be effective at tackling poverty.
