Every September, the great and the good descend on New York to discuss development and global issues. With the UN General Assembly, the UN Climate Summit, the Clinton Global Initiative and the Social Good Summit, right now is the time to keep an eye on the global development debate.
But with three major events happening simultaneously, it can be difficult to follow the stream of activity and discussion. So, in order to help marshal that flood of information, we’ll be running a series of posts this week to summarise the issues being discussed and how they’re playing out on Twitter.
From the #MDGs to #climatechange, we’ll be keeping an eye on the major talking points and point you in the right direction for more information and debate.
To get things started, we’ve pulled together a shortlist of the top event hashtags for each summit and will be tracking them over the course of the week using the map above.
