Despite my skepticism regarding the UN High Level meeting on September 25, 2008, there were those who had something worthwhile to say to the gathered representatives of the world.
From the site: We know what needs to be done, so let’s do it and do it together. Therein lies one challenge. Look around the room. Where are the foundations, nongovernmental organizations (NGO), religious organizations and corporations? They are critical partners in reducing poverty and improving people’s lives. But their voices and views are not well represented at this official roundtable. Development requires decisive governmental action: governmental leaders must keep their promises. But development is not solely a governmental task.
