Learning from National Policies Supporting MDG Implementation

image of World Economic and Social Survey 2014/2015
The year 2015 was one of global action concerning the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other challenges. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development along with a set of new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will apply universally to all countries. As the MDG experience shows, setting ambitious goals is the first step; achieving them requires concrete actions. This publication reviews economic, social and environmental policies implemented at the national level and the institutional aspects that enabled them, bringing about significant progress towards achieving the MDGs. The Survey draws a set of policy lessons that States will find helpful in formulating strategies and policies for implementing the 2030 Agenda.

Preface

The Millennium Declaration, adopted by United Nations Member States at the dawn of this century, reaffirmed the fundamental values and principles of the United Nations and pledged to spare no effort to free all women, men, girls and boys from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of poverty. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), based on the Declaration, have proved to be one of the most important initiatives undertaken by the United Nations to promote development for all.
