How the MDGs Could Curtail Development

Submitted by jcravens42 on November 3, 2007 - 5:18pm.

Some of the ways in which the MDGs are being pushed could actually limit development, says Inge Kaul, former director of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Office of Development Studies. Kaul was director of UNDP's Human Development Report Office from 1989 to mid-1995. She headed the organisation's Office of Development Studies (ODS) up to the end of 2005, and left UNDP in November 2006. She is now adjunct professor at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, and advisor to various multilateral agencies. She spoke to IPS European director Ramesh Jaura.
