It is 49 days away from Blog Action Day 2008 Poverty and 51 days away from the start of the next Stand Up Take Action event Stand Up Against Poverty. It is also midpoint to the deadline for the Millennium Development Goals.

EUFORIC, the European Forum On International Cooperation has a paper on Millennium Development Goals at Midpoint: where do we stand? The paper is accessible here as a pdf. The paper was found through the BrianDRPM MDG tag subscription from at the right column of this blog.

Also found was a link from German user uliversum who provided the latest link to BBC World Service | Trust 2015 index, which though it has some older material, still provides a good deal of basic information on the goals.

Afterthought - I should have mentioned the blog post Looking Back, looking Forward: the Successes and Challenges of the Millennium Campaign from the End Poverty 2015 - UN Millennium Campaign blog. It is 9 months old, but it also provides some perspective on the progress of the goals.
