Millenium Development Goals versus Sustainable Development Goals

Posted on Updated on

“Fifteen years ago a milestone was set for the future of international development: the Millennium Development Goals signed by all heads of state in the UN aimed to cut hunger and poverty in half by 2015. Did they achieve their objectives? What does the new program Sustainable Development Goals promise? Can we trust these announced ambitions? Can we trust that the United Nations is strong enough to convince the nation states to implement these goals? Can we trust that the signatory nation states will take these objectives seriously?”(quoted from event program).
