Fifteen years after the Millennium Development Goals were set, it’s time for a review. Monocle’s foreign editor Steve Bloomfield chairs a discussion asking if these targets for global development worked. Michela Wrong and Simon Maxwell join the debate and question whether this box-ticking approach is the best way to measure progress. Plus: John W. McArthur explains how the Sustainable Development Goals, the next stage, aim to further this UN initiative.
