Eight Goals for 2015
UNDP and the Millennium Development Goals
About the MDGs
- In September 2000 world leaders gathered at UN Headquarters ratified and adopted the Millennium Declaration; 192 nations signed on to this wide-ranging commitment. A year later the UN Secretary General presented a Road map towards the implementation of the United Nations Millennium Declaration. Now, UNDP and the UN Development Group (UNDG) have been facilitating an unprecedented global conversation through which people can help shape the future development agenda that will build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) after 2015.

Belize’s first MDGs Report, 2004, identified key issues to be addressed with respect to each of the eight (8) MDGs. To assist with integration of the MDGs in national plans and implementation, UNDP supported the Government of Belize in partnership with the University of Belize, the Ministry of Economic Development, the United Nations Country Team and the Ministries of Health, Natural Resources, Human Development and Local Government, in the implementation of an MDG Needs Assessment and Cost Prognosis (Phase II) Project.
In the past few years the Government of Belize has addressed some of the challenges brought to light by the MDGs Scorecard and Outlook Report 2010, through various programmes and legislation. This summary attempts to underscore both the key messages of the 2010 Report and more recent data, policies and initiatives aimed at the attainment of all Millennium Development Goals.
