Abstract

"The United Nations Millennium Declaration, made in September 2000, was a powerful call to action by the international community that built on the foundation laid by a series of global conferences held in the 1990s.Eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), with associated targets and quantifiable indicators, were developed from the Declaration as a means of realising the objectives it sets forth. The indicators built upon other global indicators developed in response to previous global conferences. The goals, targets and indicators were presented by Secretary-General Kofi Annan to the UN General Assembly in September 2001 in the Road Map Towards the Implementation of the United Nations Millennium Declaration (UN 2001). Goal 1: Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; Goal 2: Achieve universal primary education; Goal 3: Promote gender equality and empower women; Goal 4: Reduce child mortality; Goal 5: Improve maternal health; Goal 6: Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases; Goal 7: Ensure environmental sustainability; Goal 8: Develop a global partnership for development.
