Millennium Development Goals

What is the UN doing?

MDGs Goal 1

The UN Millennium Campaign was set up in 2002 to raise awareness for the MDGs, work with civil society to take action in support of the Goals and urge governments to live up to their commitments. Every year, the Millennium Campaign mobilizes millions of people around the world in a symbolic Stand Up against Poverty action.

Many other parts of the UN System, including a wide range of agencies, funds and programmes, are also working on the MDGs, often directly on the ground. Below are a few examples.
