The 2015 deadline to meet the targets of the Millennium Development Goals is fast approaching. There has been significant progress, but it is uneven. Meanwhile the context within which development goals are pursued has become much more challenging, visible in the recent food, fuel and financial crisis. Environmental degradation, demographic changes and persistent inequalities further threaten progress.

This publication discusses new directions and policies at the national and international level to achieve transformative change and sustainable development post-2015.

The World Economic and Social Survey (WESS) is a yearly publication that provides objective analysis of pressing long-term social and economic development issues, and discusses the positive and negative impact of corresponding policies. Scholars, policymakers, development thinkers and practitioners, as well as United Nations staff members have come together to develop the main messages for this year’s focus – Innovative Sources of Development Finance.

This publication touches on topics such as conventional proposals of innovative international financing, existing mechanisms of innovative financing for development, and the allocation process, as well as the relation of international distribution mechanisms to development objectives.

This survey explains why the ‘Great Green Technological Transformation""<&rdquo;>!! will have to be fully realized in developing countries if they are to achieve food security and rural development, minimize the damage from natural hazards and extreme disasters partly induced by climate change, and transform their economies to beat destitution and create productive jobs.

Avoiding the climate change tipping point will require fundamental shifts in existing technologies to transform manufacturing, agriculture, living arrangements and infrastructure and thereby reduce greenhouse gas emissions, make more efficient use of natural resources and derivatives, create less waste, preserve biodiversity and reduce social disparities. The survey assesses options and policies to facilitate a new technological revolution, and the challenges societies face in achieving sustainable development and poverty reduction.
