The Millennium Development Goals Report 2008
United Nations Publications, 2008 - Business & Economics - 52 pages
This report shows where we stand in 2006 in achieving the Millennium Development Goals, six years after leaders from every country agreed on a framework for development and time-bound targets by which progress can be measured. The challenges the Goals represent are staggering, but there are clear signs of hope. The report presents the latest assessment on how far we have come, and how far we have to go in reaching these goals, in each of the worlds regions. Similar data will be collected and presented each year until 2015, the target date for the Millennium Development Goals, in an effort to give further direction and focus to international cooperation and national action.
