Memorias COPDES 2005 (Spanish)



Presidential Commission



The Presidential Commission on the Millennium Development Goals and Sustainable Development (COPDES) was established in 2004. The function of COPDES is mainly to provide a framework for coordination and to monitor progress toward the achievement of the MDGs. COPDES will use the UN Alliance as a catalyst.

The COPDES and some of the Ministries and Task Forces in the Dominican Republic will work with the UN Alliance in strengthening cooperation with the United Nations system organizations to expand partnerships with the private sector as well as link with priorities in the ongoing national assessment of needs for meeting MDG targets. The work mainly of the Ministry of Agriculture is closely related to UN Alliance themes. The aim of the COPDES Task Force on Hunger, the "Comer es Primero" programme, is to work for poverty reduction through implementation of Task Force strategies and recommendations, including through public-private partnerships for rural development.
