According to a blog post on the United Nations Foundation blog, the recent IMF/World Bank spring meetings were another important moment for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as leaders from around the world came together to make a number of important announcements. Gathered in Washington, D.C. for the meetings, United Nations officials and partners from government, civil society, the private sector, and multilateral institutions highlighted the urgent need to step up efforts to improve lives around the world through the MDGs.

Established in 2000 by the UN and governments around the world, the MDGs provide a shared “to-do list” for the global community: reduce poverty and hunger, improve education and health, and promote gender equality and the environment – all with a target achievement date of 2015.
