As we move from the era of the Millennium Development Goals to the Sustainable Development Goals it is important to consider how development agendas are set, the progress that has been made over the past 15 years, and how current debates are shaping global development efforts for the next 15 years. This book was produced as part of a University College London-London International Development Centre research collaboration entitled Thinking Beyond Sectors for Sustainable Development. The aim of the book is to provide a concise introduction to debates in a number of vital development sectors, review progress made in each sector, and consider how looking beyond sectors might open new opportunities for inclusive, sustainable development. Each chapter in this book was produced collaboratively by academics from a wide number of disciplines. As such, it represents a truly interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral effort, of the kind that will be necessary for the successful development and implementation of future international development goals.
