• The Millenium Development Goals (MDGs)
      Ten years after the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were established, it is clear that the objectives of human wellbeing and dignity for all, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, will not be achieved if the MDGs are pursued in isolation from human rights.  While some countries are on track to reaching a few of these Goals, more than a billion people are still trapped in extreme poverty.  With only a few years until the 2015 deadline to achieve the MDGs, it is essential to renew our commitment to a human rights-based development approach.
