Millenium Development Goals
In 2000, 189 world leaders made a historic promise at the United Nations Millennium Summit when they signed onto the Millennium Declaration and agreed to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the world's poorest people. World leaders have agreed to achieve the MDGs by 2015.
The "United Nations Millennium Campaign" has partnered with Resident Coordinator’s offices around some priority countries to support and inspire people from around the world to take action in support of the Millennium Development Goals. Nepal is one of the priority countries. It’s up to the citizens of the world to make sure leaders follow through on these commitments.In Nepal, the Campaign has strong connections with civil society organizations (CSOs), local bodies and the UN system, to enhance its policy advocacy work and campaign efforts, combining the perspectives from community-based organizations at the grassroots level and the UN strength to create stronger policy and practice change for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.
