AIV, 2011
In New York in 2000 the Millennium Declaration was unanimously adopted by the United Nations General Assembly. On the basis of the Declaration, a series of measurable Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were agreed, to be achieved by

On 18 November 2010, the government requested the AIV to draw up an advisory report to enable it to determine its position in the debate on the post-2015 development agenda (the request can be found in annexe I). In its request, the
government explicitly specifies that the report should not go into the Netherlands’ policy on the MDGs in the 2011 to 2015 period. Instead, the AIV was asked to explore the current approach, thus providing the government with an insight into
its strengths and weaknesses, and to trace the outlines of a possible new approach, in so far as one is emerging from national and international discussions and publications, from the perspective of both developing countries and donors. The government may decide, after this exploratory study, to request a more detailed follow-up report. During the process of drawing up the current report, however, the AIV concluded that it needed to take a few initial steps towards elaborating a
proposed new approach for the period after 2015.
