Relevant publications

The following are suggestions to understand the conceptual dialogue at stake in the post-2015 debates. First of all, we recommend two articles from Markus Loewe, senior researcher at the German Development Institute, on MDGs and SDGs; that is, on the complementarity and compatibility of a rapprochement based on human development vs. the provision of global public goods.

A series of posts by Christopher Swope will help us discover how the SDG 11 has made its way, the “Urban SDG”, to the final proposal of the Open Working Group: which have been its promoters, what partnerships has it had, and what opposition it has overcome. Public choice in real-time.
Finally, we suggest a brief study from Paula Lucci, commissioned by UCLG, which offers an excellent opportunity to clarify the terminology on an important and current topic:  “localisation” of the development goals, as verification element of its compliance and its adequate distribution on the territory, and perhaps of involvement, participation and empowerment of the regional and local authorities.
