On 25 September 2013, the President of the UN General Assembly hosted a special event on the MDG’s to follow up efforts made towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

 

In the outcome document adopted by Member States, world leaders renewed their commitment to meet the MDG’s targets and agreed to hold a high-level Summit in September 2015 to adopt a new set of Goals.

 

The Goals will build on the foundation laid by the MDGs and also respond to new challenges. They will balance the three elements of sustainable development – providing economic transformation and opportunity to lift people out of poverty, advancing social justice and protecting the environment.
