The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) are working in partnership to explore and recommend future directions for international development, beyond the 2015 Millennium Development Goals.
The joint initiative – to be called Toward a Post-2015 Development Paradigm – is co-directed by CIGI Senior Fellow Dr. Barry Carin, and Under Secretary General for National Society and Knowledge Development at the IFRC Dr. Mukesh Kapila.
Toward a Post-2015 Development Paradigm will feature two workshops: an IFRC-sponsored meeting in Geneva, Switzerland (February 14-15) and another at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Centre in Lake Como, Italy (June 20-24). With an expert panel of international development specialists, the strength, focus, and depth of this partnership is highlighted by support from the renowned Rockefeller Foundation. The findings of this initiative will be published and released later in 2011.
