Abstract/Summary The international community plans to adopt a post-2015 agenda based on two previous agendas – the MDGs and the SDGs. This merger is motivated by similarities in their goals and the need for improved global governance. Both agendas are ill-defined and a gap exists between ends and means. The new unique agenda has numerous and varied goals which are potentially in conflict. Developed countries might face a dilemma between altruistic aid policies and the need for tied aid to encourage transformation towards a green economy. However, it can be argued that the new agenda provides scope for political compromise and flexibility.
