Foreword and Acknowledgements

OECD Development Centre

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.
