Can we still Achieve the Millennium Development Goals?

From Costs to Policies

This study contributes to the current debate on achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), their relevance and what can be done after 2015, by looking at estimates of the cost of reaching the goals in 2015. In particular, it sizes the additional resources needed in developing countries to attain the goals.

Hide / Show Abstract

In 2000, the international community came together to agree upon the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and in so doing committed itself to working together to put an end to poverty, hunger, disease and lack of adequate shelter by 2015. Gender equality, education and environmental sustainability were to be promoted along with basic rights to health, education, safe drinking water and sanitation. To achieve these goals, the international community, including the OECD, agreed to build up a global partnership for development.
