    Speaking at a meeting of parliamentarians and civil society activists in Dhaka, Bangladesh, GCAP co-chair Amitabh Behar has challenged anti-poverty campaigners to think beyond the Millennium Development Goals and to actively place the world's most marginalised at the centre of any development conversation.

    "Are we OK to just add a couple more goals to the MDGs?" Behar asked an audience of parliamentarians, activists and development partners from some twenty central and south Asian countries from Bhutan to Tajikistan. "Do we want to just simply tweak the MDGs or extend the goals for another 3 -5 years?"
