The United Nation's Scorecard for the MDGs for 2014

MDG Scorecard for 2014

This is one of the last “scorecards” of the MDGs as the MDGs will be phased into the Sustainability Development Goals for the years 2015 and Beyond.  It is refreshing to hear of what has been done rather the constant din of what needs to be done.  This work in the civil sector has been accomplished through the collaborative efforts of over 25,000 Non Government Organization (NGOs), some governments, and some organizations in the business sector.  Read more about The United Nation's Scorecard for the MDGs for 2014 »

Millennium Development Goals

The United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)

The United Nations is set up to deal with several sectors of society – government, civil, business, and education. In the United States, we are very familiar with the UN’s work with the government sector primarily through the General Assembly (with the government representatives from all 193 member countries) and the Security Council (of which the US is one of the five permanent members with 10 rotating members). However we are less familiar with the UN’s work with the civil sector or the business sector. Read more about Millennium Development Goals »
