Where are we on attaining the Millennium Development Goals? Who are they for? How has the financial crisis affected progress? Will they be reached in the Least Developed Countries?
In the first of this two-part Vi multimedia resource, Richard Kozul-Wright, of UNCTAD's Unit on Economic Cooperation and Integration among Developing Countries, traces the origins of the MDGs and ponders social, economic and governance questions arising from efforts to achieve them.
In the second presentation, Giovanni Valensisi, of UNCTAD's Division for Africa, Least Developed Countries and Special Programmes, tracks the progress toward attaining the MDGs globally and in the LDCs, presents the outlook after the financial crisis, and reviews lessons learned.
