Millennium development goals

The 3011th Council meeting on Foreign Affairs held in Brussels on 10 May 2010 held a policy debate to prepare the EU position for the UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) review summit, which will take place in New York in September. The purpose of the discussion was to identify key messages for conclusions to be adopted at the June Foreign Affairs Council. These conclusions will contain the EU's position and political messages for the UN event in New York. The MDGs constitute the first ever set of shared development goals at international level. World leaders agreed in 2000 to take decisive action to combat world poverty in its different dimensions by 2015, using time-bound and measurable targets. With only five years remaining before the agreed 2015 deadline, they will gather in New York in September for the UN MDG review high level plenary meeting.
