Millennium Development Goals
In September 2000, building upon a decade of major United Nations conferences and summits, world leaders came together at the United Nations Headquarters in New York to adopt the United Nations Millennium Declaration.

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. This led to the landmark commitment to a new global partnership to reduce extreme poverty and setting out a series of eight time-bound targets - with a deadline of 2015. These eight time-bound target have become known as the Millennium Development Goals.
 

China has attached great importance to implementing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and made major contributions to their achievements globally. As the end of 2015 and the deadline for the MDGs approaches, the Government of China in partnership with the United Nations System in China jointly launched the Report on China’s Implementation of the MDGs (2000-2015). This is China’s final progress report on the MDGs before the adoption of the post-2015 development agenda later this year. It reflects that China has made notable progress in many areas such as eliminating poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, ensuring healthcare for women and children, disease control and prevention as well as environmental protection. China has specifically made great contribution toward MDG 1 (Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger) at the global level and provided continued support to other developing countries to achieve the MDGs through South-South Cooperation.

 

While much has been achieved since the announcement of the MDGs at the Millennium Declaration in 2000, progress has been uneven across regions and within countries, and the impact of the global economic crisis is still hampering the pace of development efforts around the globe. Voices around the world are demanding leadership in 2015 to go the last mile on poverty, inequality and to address the global challenge of climate change. The demands are for a shift to a more sustainable path. To read more about this, see our section on the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
