The Millennium Development Goals or MDGs are mentioned regularly by ONE (and many other campaigning organisations) – but how well known are they? Could you list all 8? And do you how many are likely to have been met by their target date of 2015?
The MDGs are a set of poverty-busting targets agreed by 189 nations in the year 2000. They cover hunger and extreme poverty, education, gender equality, child mortality, maternal health, AIDS / HIV, Malaria and other diseases, environmental sustainability and a commitment to global cooperation for development.
The International ONE Blog is a daily log of the anti-poverty movement. The site is operated by ONE staff, with guest contributions from ONE volunteers, members and allies.
The content of each post and each comment represents the views of that author and does not necessarily reflect the views of ONE. ONE does not support or oppose any candidate for elected office, and any post expressing support or opposition for a candidate is not endorsed by ONE.
