Whither Post-2015 UN Development?

by Thomas G. Weiss and Stephen Browne

This article is published as part of Fridays With MUNPlanet, and its special series dedicated to world politics and the United Nations. Stephen Browne and Thomas Weissco-directors of Future UN Development System (FUNDS) Project at Ralph Bunche Institute for International Studies in New York write for MUNPlanet about the challenges that lay ahead the post-development agenda.  They argue that "the UN system must cohere more, and its components must cooperate not compete. A strong centre of strategic direction is needed," and that "the SDGs will be toothless without adequate monitoring to embarrass non-compliers."
