There are only five years left until the 2015 deadline for the Millennium Development Goals, and debates about their progress and prospects are becoming increasingly urgent. World leaders will gather to discuss these challenges at a summit at the United Nations in New York from 20-22 September. But as well as taking action now, more and more attention is being given to what happens after the MDGs. What have been the experiences with the MDGs and what has been learned about future goal setting?
 
On 13 September, the London International Development Centre and The Lancet will launch their Commission addressing these concerns. The Millennium Development Goals: A Cross-sectoral Analysis and Principles for Goal Setting Post-2015 is a unique study written by experts from different sectors associated with the MDGs, including agriculture, education and health.

 
The launch will include presentations by the Commission’s authors, followed by an expert panel discussion on lessons learned from the MDGs so far, and priorities for future goal setting.
