A good deal of the effort of getting the word out about the Millennium Development Goals and the activities to support them is Pete and Re-pete. This blog's del.icio.us subscription came up with another worthwhile find, again by del.cio.us user uliversum. I am passing it on here.Have your say! " Blog on the high level event on MDGs
The high level event referred to is the UN
will convene a High-level Event on the Millennium Development Goals at UN Headquarters in New York on 25 September 2008. At the halfway point towards the target date, significant progress has been made, but urgent and increased efforts are needed by all stakeholders in order to meet the Goals by 2015.It would have been better to my mind to have coordinated such a High-level event with the street level events of Stand Up Take Action and Blogging Day 2008 taking place in October. The latest Doha talks didn't provide any confidence that getting the governments together will result in anything more than redundant rhetorical promises. Still, it's another avenue of potential input.
