Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I regularly participate in expert consultations on the post-Millennium Development Goals agenda. I also serve on the executive committee of Beyond 2015, the largest civil society group working to promote an inclusive, pro-poor agenda post-2015. Additionally, I am co-organizing The Power of Numbers: A Critical Review of MDG Targets for Human Development and Human Rights.
