In December 2015 the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will end. Since 2000, extreme poverty has fallen by 50%, another 2.3 billion have access to safe drinking water and more girls are in education. So what should we do next?
The end of the MDGs are an opportunity for new and ambitious targets. After the Rio+20 Conference in 2012, world leaders agreed to create a set of sustainable development goals (SDGs).
Discussions about the goals are ongoing and will end in September 2015.
