So That Was 2015 – CGD Podcast

December 15, 2015

2015 was a big year for development – and for the CGD Podcast. We brought you key CGD research, spoke to major players in international development, and asked some tough questions: How can we help poor countries in ways beyond aid? What will rich countries do differently once they've signed onto the SDGs? Why are children in developing countries learning little in school?

For this week's podcast, our last of the year, we're doing something slightly different. Befitting the holiday theme, we asked a veritable choir of CGD experts to weigh in on what has been the stand-out moment in development in the last twelve months; and, as we enter the post-2015 development era, what they hope to see in 2016 and beyond.
