Followers of the discourse around international development will be aware of the important debates that took place at the UN General Assembly during September 2014. The ambitious theme of the 69th session of the UN General Assembly, “Delivering on and implementing a Transformative Post-2015 Development Agenda” has set the scene for the negotiations to be pursued in the Open Working Group on the Sustainable Development Goals and other expert committees and related dialogues and working groups on the post-2015 development agenda.

Policymakers, civil society groups, business and researchers are all expected to make their voices heard on the framework that will replace the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) by September 2015. How is South Africa contributing to this debate and what does it have to offer as a development partner towards the noble goal of improving the plight of the world’s marginalised poor?

Getting Down to Business

By Terence Corrigan
The African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) recognises that a well-designed system of corporate governance is essential for creating an environment that at once enables profitable business and keeps business behaviour within responsible boundaries – together, the preconditions for development. To explore this, it devotes an entire thematic area to corporate governance, but to date this topic has tended to attract relatively little attention.
