Millennium Challenge : Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)
Millennium Development Goals

The pledge undertaken in the UN Millennium Challenge Declaration took a concrete shape in the Millennium Development Goals in recognition of the need to translate this commitment into action, provide a framework for addressing extreme poverty while promoting gender equality, education, and environmental sustainability with time-bound and quantified targets. The Millennium Development Goals are eight international development goals that were established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations in 2000, following the adoption of the United Nations Millennium Declaration. All 189 United Nations member states at the time (there are 193 currently) and more than 30 international organizations committed to help achieve the Millennium Development Goals by 2015. The eight Millennium Development Goals are:
