Here’s a brilliant interactive graph of progress on the eight UN millennium goals. Are we on track for 2015? In the 2008 MDG report, UN Sec Gen Ban Ki-Moon says “There is no question we can achieve the over-arching goal: we can put an end to poverty.”
Have a look at the report as it makes for very interesting reading. With the interactive graph you can see the progress being made (especially as you roll the cursor forward from 2001). By the way, I found this after visiting the UN MDG Awards site - the Canadian Committee Chair for the UN MGD Awards, David Woolfson recently joined us as an XL Member. The awards take place in Feb 2009.
