Center for Strategic and International Studies Report Examines Relationship Between Millenium Development Goals, U.S. Development Aid Policies
May 30, 2013
A new report (.pdf) from the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), titled "Do U.N. Global Development Goals Matter to the United States?" and written by CSIS Global Health Policy Center Fellow Nellie Bristol, examines how "[t]he goals sometimes played a behind-the-scenes role in U.S. funding decisions, but U.S. programs have retained their own identities -- most recently, for example, Feed the Future, AIDS-Free Generation, and the Child Survival Call to Action -- rather than joining in campaigns around specific MDGs," according to the summary page. "Nonetheless, U.S. development assistance feeds into progress on the MDGs," and "[a]s the process gets under way to develop successor goals to the MDGs, U.S. involvement is critical to ensure U.N. goals continue to reflect U.S. strategies, to generate U.S. input into the future development agenda, and to foster political buy-in into growing development needs that are likely to go beyond traditional U.S. priorities," the summary states (5/29).
