The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) herald a new phase for
international development. This article presents the results of a consultative
exercise to collaboratively identify 100 research questions of critical
importance for the post-2015 international development agenda. The final
shortlist is grouped into nine thematic areas and was selected by 21
representatives of international and non-governmental organisations and
consultancies, and 14 academics with diverse disciplinary expertise from an
initial pool of 704 questions submitted by 110 organisations based in 34
countries. The shortlist includes questions addressing long-standing
problems, new challenges and broader issues related to development
policies, practices and institutions. Collectively, these questions are relevant
for future development-related research priorities of governmental and nongovernmental
organisations worldwide and could act as focal points for
transdisciplinary research collaborations.
