In July 2012, Defra proposed a new set of sustainable development indicators, intended to measure national progress on key economic, social and environmental issues over time and complement the National Well-being Measures published by the ONS. Following a public consultation period and inquiry held by the Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), the final set of indicators has now been decided.

The UN High Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post 2015 Development Agenda was created in July 2012 with the purpose of establishing the best ways to reduce global poverty beyond 2015, the date at which the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire. This new report by the panel argues that a new development agenda should carry forward the spirit of the Millennium Declaration and the best of the MDGs, with a practical focus on issues such as poverty, hunger, water, sanitation, education and healthcare.
