    1000 days to MDGs deadline options for PH

    The countdown to the last 1,000 days to the 2015 deadline of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) has begun. On April 5, the world marked the beginning of the critical last mile of the MDGs.


    Launched in 2000 with the signing of the Millennium Declaration by 189 UN member-countries, the MDGs became the global agenda for development at the start of the new century. Being time-bound and measurable, the MDGs have made a difference and changed the way of achieving development objectives.


    The 8 MDGs are: the halving of extreme poverty and hunger, universal primary education, gender equality, reduction of child mortality, improved women's health, stoppage and reversal of the spread of TB, malaria and HIV/AIDS, environmental sustainability, and global partnerships for aid, trade and debt relief. The MDGs are measured against 18 targets and 60 indicators.


    Twelve years hence, the MDGs have shown successes in mobilizing the global community into achieving its targets. As of the 2012 Global MDGs Progress Report, 4 targets have been achieved. First, the global target of halving extreme poverty from its 1990 level has been reached, equivalent to 600 million people.

    Be the Change

    Global Day of Citizen Action

     

    On 16 May 2015, people around the world will be sharing their views on `civic space’ - the freedoms of expression, association and assembly.

     

    The Global Day of Citizen Action engages ordinary citizens by asking them whether they feel free to speak out, organise and take action. In doing so, we get to engage with citizens in an easy way that allows them to give their opinion on `civic space’ and allows civil society organisations like yourself to create awareness about citizen’s rights. It also helps us understand the extent to which civic space is free or restricted in different parts of the world. Learn more about this exciting campaign and how you can take part by visiting us at www.civicus.org/bethechange/gdca
