Social Developments and MDGs
Healing the World and Making it a Better Place
The world free of poverty is yet to be. What we are seeing now is a World that is hurting, and so deeply that there seems to be no relief or end in sight.
It is now 20 years from Rio when and where most everyone agreed humanity was at a defining moment. Back then, we thought we had the answer. Now, we are not sure anymore. The human race and the planet are ailing and the present is not the future we wanted 20 years ago.
We now seem to have hit an impasse and find ourselves so caught up in a deep bind and hard put as to where and how to make a breakthrough.
The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were ratified in 2000 by 189 United Nations member states towards improving social and economic conditions in the world’s poorest countries by 2015.
