The article provides an overview of the issues and challenges of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and examines India's role and achievements. With less than a year to go before the deadline of 2015 (the deadline set to achieve the MDG targets), the article highlights that there is a need to define the global development framework beyond 2015. The article explains that the process to prepare a post-2015 development agenda has been started by the UN and the vision underlying these efforts is to develop a comprehensive post-2015 development agenda, merging four key dimensions of inclusive economic and social development, environmental sustainability and peace and security. The article suggests that the new development framework can only be successful, if there are serious joint efforts taken by both the UN and the respective national governments.
