    The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)

    The MDG framework has helped to galvanize development efforts and guide global and national development priorities since 2000. While three of the eight goals have been achieved prior to the final deadline, much work remains to be done ahead of 2015. With only two years left, enhanced commitment, resources and efforts are needed and the Decent Work Agenda offers an integrated approach, which can contribute to accelerating progress towards achievement of all the MDGs.
