ASAP is supporting ID100, a collaborative project to identify the 100 most important questions for development after the expiration of the Millennium Development Goals in 2015. Led by the Sheffield Institute for International Development (SIID), ID100 aims to contribute to the discussion of the post-2015 development agenda.
Members sent in 40 questions to be considered for inclusion in ASAP’s submission to ID100. A committee of ASAP global Board members, chapter heads, and staff voted for the five best questions. Here are the winners:
- What are successful business models or partnership models for providing access to clean water? (Submitted by Regina Schönberger)
- What are the socially and morally most desirable interventions to reduce inequalities in income? (Submitted by Regina Schönberger)
- What are the best methods for ensuring that people benefit from the exploitation of the natural resources found on their lands? (Submitted by Jérémie Gilbert)
- How can companies and financial actors be held accountable to pay fair taxes? (Submitted by Jérémie Gilbert)
- What are the most effective policy interventions to address some of the persistent silences affecting the success of MDG 5: girls’ and women’s lack of control over sexuality, fertility and family planning, and access to safe abortion? (Submitted by Colleen O’Manique and Pieter Fourie)
