Introduction

At the beginning of a new millennium, world leaders made commitments to consolidating a global partnership to improve the life of poor people around the world in the course of one generation, from 1990 to 2015. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are part of the international development agenda of the United Nations. The agenda includes quantitative targets to improve results in poverty reduction, health, education, gender equality and the protection of the environment through stronger partnerships between developed and developing countries, stronger partnerships among developing countries themselves, and partnerships with the active involvement of the private sector.
