http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/bkgd.shtml

In September 2000, building upon a decade of major United Nations conferences and summits, world leaders came together at United Nations Headquarters in New York to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty and setting out a series of time-bound targets - with a deadline of 2015 - that have become known as the Millennium Development Goals.

#UNSG Ban Ki-moon speaks at General Assembly Plenary Meeting to adopt Agenda 2030. Full remarks: http://bit.ly/1UphvDh  #Action2015 #UN70

 

Excerpts:

For 15 years, our pursuit of development has been inspired by eight Millennium Development Goals that captured our ambition to eradicate extreme poverty and appalling social ills. 

 

Five years ago, you asked me to initiate thinking on a post-2015 development agenda. Two years later, at the Rio+20 summit meeting, you embarked on a process to craft a set of sustainable development goals – the SDGs – to be at the centre of this agenda.

(...)

Today we are ready to hand over this agenda to world leaders for endorsement at the Summit later this month.

Agenda 2030 aims high.  It puts people at the centre of development.

 

The Financing for Development Agreement reached in Addis Ababa in July, and efforts to forge a new path forward on climate change in Paris in December are critical elements for the success of our endeavours.
