The Millennium Development Goals: Victims of the Global Recession?

The first in the JustShare 'Recession and...' series.

The UN Millennium Development Goals Report 2009 opens with this bleak statement:

"The Millennium Declaration set 2015 as the target date for achieving most of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which established quantitative benchmarks to halve extreme poverty in all its forms.

As the date approaches, less than six years away, the world finds itself mired in an economic crisis that is unprecedented in its severity and global dimensions. Progress towards the goals is now threatened by sluggish — or even negative — economic growth, diminished resources, fewer trade opportunities for the developing countries, and possible reductions in aid flows from donor nations."

Can the Millennium Development Goals still be achieved? Join us on Tuesday 20th October at 1.05pm at All Hallows by the Tower, EC3R 5BJ to hear the views of the experts on this important question - and to find out what you can do too. All are welcome. The debate will end by 2pm but will be followed by refreshments.
