Even in countries where there have been significant gains toward achieving the MDGs, inequalities have grown. The MDGs have supported aggregate progress—often without acknowledging the importance of investing in the most marginalized and excluded, or giving due credit to governments and institutions which do ensure that development benefits these populations.
Recognition of this shortcoming in the MDGs has brought an increasing awareness of the importance of working to reverse growing economic inequalities through the post framework, and a key element of this must be actively working to dismantle discrimination.
Under international law, this requires states to identify and eliminate discrimination and ensure equality.

Indicators should measure realization of urgent social and economic needs of the most marginalized populations. Indicators which measure the achievement of each target for the most marginalized or discriminated against groups in each country.
In order to achieve this, disaggregated data will be essential. It may not be feasible to disaggregate date by all potential grounds of discrimination.
The post framework should emphasize the importance of development reaching the poorest. A specific target of addressing the social and economic needs of the poorest two wealth quintiles in each country.
Indicators which measure the achievement of each target by wealth quintiles. This will require the collection of data along wealth quintiles.
