UN Millennium Campaign and NGLS launch new website

Only five years remain to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) agreed upon by UN Member States in 2000.  UN Member States will therefore come together this September in New York during an ‘MDG summit’ to accelerate progress towards the achievement of the MDGs.

To keep interested civil society stakeholders informed on the summit process, including the planned Hearings with civil society and the private sector in June, the UN Millennium Campaign and the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) have launched a dedicated website

This website will report on all the latest developments related to the summit, give voice to perspectives from civil society and provide information on how to be engaged in the summit process.
