Millennium Development Goals???

for a catch up and further links and info.

At the Millennium Summit in September 2000, the largest gathering of world leaders in history adopted the UN Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to a global partnership to reduce poverty, improve health, and promote peace, human rights, gender equality, and environmental sustainability.
                    (United Nations Development Programme)

189 nations adopted a set of eight goals that addressed the world’s most challenging development issues.

The goals were chosen on the grounds that they were realistic and achievable by 2015.
