The paper aims to present the key challenges being faced by the Asia and Pacific region as a number of its developing economies graduate from a low-income status to middle-income status. In the wake of the region’s growing influence in the world economy, and its struggles to overcome income and nonincome dimensions of poverty, the region’s challenges have a significant role in shaping the post-2015 development framework. Unlike most of the post-2015 discussion literature, this paper does not discuss the relative merits of different specific topics to be included or excluded. Instead, using lessons learnt from Millennium Development Goal process, this paper suggests a conceptual framework for future goal setting, and suggests an intergovernmental approach to implementation.
