In fact, it made 8 goals to accomplish by 2015. They call this the UN Millennium Project with eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

These goals were set in September 2000. It’s now December 2008 – over halfway to the deadline. Are we halfway there?

I’m glad the UN was able to agree on a unified set of goals, for a start. The documentation seems like a very thorough quantification of how to measure progress against these goals – using all the best tools I see in Corporate America for achieving business goals.  But who is really acting to make these changes?

I’ll organize this blog by these 8 goals. You can click on the Categories to the right to find all the posts related to each goal. If you have any other suggestions, let me know!
