No need to go in detail Will help develop a historic perspective which is extremely critical for understanding future (Post-2015 Development Agenda, SDGs) Valid upto 2015 All UN Member states agreed (189 then, 193 now) in UN Millennium Summit in 2000.

To promote gender equality and empower women To reduce child mortality To improve maternal health .To combat HIVIAIDS, malaria, and other diseases .

  4. Criticism Lack of proper research, analysis and justification as to why these particular goals were achieved Uneven progress between various nations Lot of focus on external aids, processes and limited community participation Only lip service to environmental sustainability No specific mention of agriculture fields, in certain parts of the world . Very very difficult to measure the progress, next to impossible in certain
