The UN global conferences of the 1990s drew up a number of key global development goals and targets. The core list of such goals and targets became known as the International Development Targets (IDTs). In September 2000, 147 Heads of State and Government- and 191 nations in total adopted the Millennium Declaration. The Declaration outlines peace, security and development concerns including environment, human rights, and governance. The Declaration mainstreams a set of inter-connected and mutually reinforcing development goals into a global agenda. The IDTs and the development goals contained in the Millenium Declaration are similar but also, in some respects, different. Recently, the sets have been merged under the designation of "Millennium Development Goals" (MDGs). The MDGs, which incorporate the IDTs, synthesise the goals and targets for monitoring human development. They are centred around eight major goals.
1. Eradicate poverty and hunger;
2. Achieve universal primary education;
3. Promote gender equality and empower women;
4. Reduce child mortality;
5. Improve maternal health;
6. Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases;
7. Ensure environmental sustainability;
8. Develop a global partnership for development.
Numercial targets have been set for each goal, which are to be achieved for most goals over a 25-year period-between 1990-2015. Appropriate indicators have been selected to monitor progress on each of the targets. A common list of 18 targets and more than 40 indicators corresponding to these goals has been prepared collaboratively by the UN, the World Bank, IMF and OECD to ensure to ensure a common assessment and understanding of the status of MDGs at global, regional and national levels.MDG monitoring will take place at the global and country level. At the global level, the UN Secretary General is to report annually to the General Assembly on progress towards a sub-set of the MDGs and to report more comprehensively every five years. These reports will support a dynamic campaign to help keep poverty issues at the heart of the national and global development agenda. Such reports are needed to keep the eyes of the world fixed on the MDGs.
