UN Millennium Campaign and NGLS launch website “The MDGs at 10 and civil society.”

Only five years remain to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agreed upon by UN Member States in 2000. Despite some progress, collectively the world is falling short. As a consequence, improvements in the lives of the poorest are slow or absent and are now being further eroded by the onset of global crises. However, the MDGs are still achievable. UN Member States will therefore come together this September in New York during an ‘MDG summit’ to accelerate progress towards the achievement of the MDGs.
With an aim of keeping interested civil society stakeholders informed on the latest developments related to the summit process, including the planned Hearings with civil society and the private sector in June, the UN Millennium Campaign and the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) have launched a dedicated website: www.un-ngls.org/mdg2010
This website will report on all the latest developments related to the summit, give voice to perspectives from civil society and provide information on how to be engaged in the summit process.
