Achieving Millennium Development Goals: Challenges for Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.11 MB | Download   
The UN global conferences of the 1990s drew up a number of different key global development goals and targets to focus, equalize and harmonize the needs and status of the people all over the world. These goals and targets were known as the International Development Targets. Again in 2000, the representatives of 189 nations, including 147
heads of state and Government adopted the Millennium Declaration during the Millennium Development Summit (September 6-8, 2000) of the United Nations. The Millennium Declaration focused on peace, security and development concerns comprising environment, human rights and good governance. In this connection, the Declaration tried to mainstream a set of interconnected and mutually reinforcing development goals into a global agenda. The international development targets and the development goals were merged together and renamed as the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). There are eight MDGs that include:
1. Eradicate extreme 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.
