'Progress for Children' report sheds new light on achieving Millennium Development Goals

Addressing the needs of the poorest of the poor is the key to meeting ambitious development goals and reducing global injustice, according to a UNICEF’s latest ‘Progress for Children’ report. The report was released today, during the first day of a UNICEF Executive Board session at United Nations headquarters in New York.

In 2000, world leaders adopted the UN Millennium Declaration, committing their nations to make the world a more equitable place and setting out a series of time-bound targets that have become known as the Millennium Development Goals, or MDGs. Every year, UNICEF’s flagship ‘Progress for Children’ report monitors progress towards these targets.

This year, ‘Progress for Children: Achieving the MDGs with Equity’ reveals that, in the push to meet the development goals by their 2015 target date, the very poor are falling further and further behind.
