Bangladesh Perspectives on Post-2015 Development Goals
The Post-2015 Consensus held its first country specific seminar on the post-2015 development agenda in Bangladesh on 9th March.
This was the first in a series of 9 seminars to be held around the world. The purpose of the country specific discussion is to bring together international economists with local sector experts in order to delve deeper into the potential benefits which the post-2015 development agenda could bring to the country and the necessity of prioritizing smart targets to achieve the desired outcomes for the country.
Through a dialogue led by the economists and sector experts across three themes: nutrition, tuberculosis and ICT infrastructure, the participants of the seminar were given a concrete understanding of potential good the post-2015 development agenda can do within Bangladesh if smart targets are prioritized for each theme.
