Post-2015 Consensus Output

  1. 1. Smartest Targets for the World: 2016-2030 Report on outreach activities January – October 2015
  2. 2. Introduction Between January and August 2015 Copenhagen Consensus Center and Australia Consensus Centre implemented an outreach program consisting of seminars, personal meetings, and youth forums to raise awareness of the Post-2015 Development Agenda and the importance of choosing the smartest targets. Financial support was provided by the New Ventures Fund (US), Department for International Development (UK Government) and Australia Consensus (Australian Government). In 2014, the Post-2015 Consensus Project brought together renowned experts from the UN, NGO and private sectors with 60 teams of economists producing 100+ research papers to establish the most effective targets for the post-2015 development agenda within the UN Open Working Group’s 22 core issue areas. Instrumental to the dissemination was the Expert Panel, including two Nobel Laureates, who reviewed all of this research and identified 19 targets that represent the best social, economic and environmental value-for-money in development over the period 2016 to 2030. An extensive outreach program consisting of seminars, personal meetings and youth forums, paired with successful media coverage has been key to build on and maximize the impact of the project around the world.
  3. 3. The UN’s High-Level Panel used Post-2015 Consensus research in its recommendations • The Panel was co-chaired by President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia, and Prime Minister David Cameron of the United Kingdom, and it includes leaders from civil society, private sector and government. • The work of the Panel reflected new development challenges while also drawing on experience gained in implementing the MDGs, both in terms of results achieved and areas for improvement. • In its to advice on the global development framework beyond 2015 to the UN’s Secretary General it cited Consensus Center research no less than 5 times • The report can be found on the UN's webpage 2013
  4. 4. The Post-2015 Consensus was introduced by keynote address to UN Open Working Group (OWG) 2013
  5. 5. Post-2015 Consensus reached a wider audience through essays and interviews 2014
  6. 6. Preliminary research commented on the work of the UN with red, yellow and green markers • The Post-2015 Consensus project asked leading economists to make a preliminary economic assessment of the development targets negotiated at the UN’s Open Working Group. • The economists marked up the UN’s document in bright red for poor targets, yellow for fair, and green for good targets. • The assessment was distributed at the next round of negotiations, to many negotiators’ surprise not all targets were marked green. • For the 11th Open Working Group the assessment was presented by Dr. Bjorn Lomborg at a jam-packed side event co-hosted by the Permanent Missions to the UN of Vietnam, Netherlands and Mexico. It was followed by a lively panel discussion. • For the 12th Open Working Group an updated analysis was distributed to the negotiators (also in French language). And an assessment of the Final Sustainable Development Targets is included in the book “The Nobel Laureates’ Guide To The Smartest Targets For The World” 2014
  7. 7. The preliminary assessment gained interest from global media, and was released as a book 2014

  16. 16. The Expert Panel of eminent economists “If we want to focus scarce resources efficiently, we need to prioritize. The evidence at hand, although limited, indicates pretty clearly that some of the proposed targets are much more promising than others.” Nancy Stokey, Economics Professor, University of Chicago. “Our list of targets will not solve all the world’s problems, but neither can any list under realistic budgets. Our list can help the UN make its choices like a savvy shopper with limited funds. Choosing great targets will vastly increase the benefits to people around the world, as well as generations to come.” Tom Schelling, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland. Nobel Laureate “What made the MDGs so successful was their ability to galvanize inter- national effort around a handful of smart, focused targets. It seems wise for us to continue this focus over the next 15 years, rather than spreading ourselves too thinly and slowing the remarkable progress we’ve already achieved.” Finn Kydland, Economics Professor, University of California. Nobel Laureate 2015
  17. 17. The Outreach Program Advocating for smarter development targets for the world
  18. 18. The Outreach Program The main focus for the Post-2015 outreach was developing countries, largely because of the future impact of the targets on their opportunities for development over the next 15 years. Seminars with country-specific focus were held in Bangladesh, Brazil, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria and South Africa. There was also additional strategic outreach in some major donor countries; the UK, the US, Australia, Canada, Denmark and Germany. There were four main strands to the outreach: • Mass media - co-operation with major newspapers in more than 20 countries to publish a series of op-ed articles on the research findings. Including interviews, press releases and op-eds in an additional 60 countries the program produced more than 1,100 published articles. • Seminars - specialist talks and roundtables with academics, politicians, think tanks and civil society on the Post-2015 research and the expert panel’s recommendation, in addition new country-specific research papers were presented at journalist seminars in nine developing countries. • Personal meetings - Dr Bjorn Lomborg visited 15 countries, holding one-on-one meetings with Ministers, politicians, policy makers and development professionals. • Youth forums - over 60 groups of students and young people in more than 20 developing countries used our materials to organize debates on the Post-2015 Agenda, and come up with their own list of prioritized targets. This was done in a similar way to the Expert Panel.

The Consensus Centre brings a simple but compelling logic to this endeavor: if we want to make sure that this world is realized for our children, let’s focus on the investments that will generate the most good.”  Richard Morgan, Senior Advisor on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, UNICEF • It is vital that the billions of dollars that governments provide for international development are used to greatest effect to improve living standards in developing countries. I welcome the initiative of the Consensus Center in undertaking a project to identify the most effective development goals for 2015 and beyond. This important research is aimed at providing policy makers with additional tools to improve the management of foreign aid globally."  Hon.

  54. 54. UN Summit Dr. Bjorn Lomborg met with journalists from Africa, Latin America and South Asia in New York. The journalists were some of the winners of Post-2015 Journalist Scholarships which enabled journalists from Bangladesh, Colombia, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, Nigeria and South Africa to report directly on the UN negotiations on the Global Goals. “This laundry list of aspirations tries to please everyone, and yet will end up doing much less for the most vulnerable people,” "Every dollar would go so much further," he said. "I'm afraid we are wasting a generational opportunity here." “Once world leaders return home from their big meeting in New York, they will have to make practical choices about which of their many development objectives to focus on. I would suggest that they pick the relatively small fraction of them that will produce demonstrably greater benefits in the world.,” Costs in the S.D.G. plan rarely seem to be linked to benefits. “Of course, economics alone should not determine the world’s top development aims over the next decade and a half’’, he said. “But ignoring costs doesn’t make difficult choices disappear; it makes them less clear.”
  55. 55. Addis Summit • In Addis, governments agreed to pledge $100 billion toward malaria prevention and treatment. • Their report cites the work of the Copenhagen Consensus, stating that cost-benefit assessment conducted on the goals and targets of the post-2015 development agenda found robust evidence that the economic benefits of reversing the spread of malaria and reducing annual malaria deaths by 95% would be 15 times higher than the costs, an ROI that it classified as “phenomenal”.
