English: The MDGs

The UN Millennium Declaration

In September 2000 the United Nations Assembly unanimously adopted the UN Millennium Declaration.
It was an 8 goal agenda that all 192 Member States agreed to adopt. They set 8 goals, they set 21 targets, they set timelines, they allocated funds: and in order to verify if they were being honest with their commitments, they set a number of indicators upon which they asked to be judged. And for the first time in world history, a concrete work agenda for the rights of the voiceless was universally agreed.

(For more information on the Millennium Development Goals, see the  MDGs on the UN web site; get the latest updates on MDG twitter page; or MDG Facebook)

The MDGs today provide a framework for the UN system and for synergizing the various international cooperation activities in a coherent worldwide effort.  The MDG targets have become an integral part of  World Development Indicators.  Each year, an annual report is prepared that assesses the progress made by member states in fulfilling the pledges they made.
