    Millennium Development Goals

    in Current Events

     
    In 2000, 189 nations made a promise to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivations. This pledge became the eight Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015. In September 2010, the world recommitted itself to accelerate progress towards these goals. (Source: UNDP )
     
    According a report published by the UNDP The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the most broadly supported, comprehensive and specific development goals the world has ever agreed upon. These eight time-bound goals provide concrete, numerical benchmarks for tackling extreme poverty in its many dimensions. They include goals and targets on income poverty, hunger, maternal and child mortality, disease, inadequate shelter, gender inequality, environmental degradation and the Global Partnership for Development.
     
    Adopted by world leaders in the year 2000 and set to be achieved by 2015, the MDGs are both global and local, tailored by each country to suit specific development needs. They provide a framework for the entire international community to work together towards a common end - making sure that human development reaches everyone, everywhere. If these goals are achieved, world poverty will be cut by half, tens of millions of lives will be saved, and billions more people will have the opportunity to benefit from the global economy.
     
    In our inaugural episode we hope to give a brief over view of the progress and challenges made  from the year 2000- 2005  and  focus on  Sub Saharan Africa to review the progress made  with reference to MDGs 1 and 4 .

    Millennium Development Goals: Progress and Challenges

    in Current Events

     
    In 2000, 189 nations made a promise to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivations. This pledge became the eight Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015. The MDGs provide a framework for the entire UN system to work coherently together toward a common end. UNDP, global development network on the ground in 177 countries and territories, is in a unique position to advocate for change, connect countries to knowledge and resources, and coordinate broader efforts at the country level. In September 2010, the world recommitted itself to accelerate progress towards these goals.
     
    The declaration established eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and time-bound targets by which progress can be measured. With the 2015 deadline looming, how much progress has been made? And is the pace of progress sufficient to achieve the goals? The MDGs break down into 21 quantifiable targets that are measured by 60 indicators.

     
    In our inaugural episode we hope to give a brief over view of the progress and challenges made  from the year 2000- 2005  and  focus on  Sub Saharan Africa to review the progress made  with reference to MDGs 1 and 4 . 
    Join us as we explore this very important topic on MDGs.

    (MDG) Millennium Development Goals and post-2015 Development

    in Education

    Millennium Development Goals and post-2015 Development Agenda
     
    The eight Mil­len­nium Devel­op­ment Goals (MDGs) – which range from halv­ing extreme poverty to halt­ing the spread of HIV/?AIDS and pro­vid­ing uni­ver­sal pri­mary edu­ca­tion – have been a mile­stone in global and national devel­op­ment efforts. The frame­work has helped to gal­va­nize devel­op­ment efforts and guide global and national devel­op­ment pri­or­i­ties. While three of the eight goals have been achieved prior to the final dead­line of 2015 progress has been uneven within and across coun­tries. Thus fur­ther efforts and a strong global part­ner­ship for devel­op­ment are needed to accel­er&s

    Power Your Progress with Problem Solving Strategies

    in Health

    Did you know that reaching for certain targets can actually shut down motivation and suck joy out of our lives.  Goals are typically outcome-oriented, which means we either succeed in our attempts to achieve them -- or we fail.  And for outcome goals that take a long time to reach, our efforts can feel like a prolonged struggle, against the risk of failure.  This doesn't exactly put us in a great frame of mind for reaching our dreams.


    Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon as we discuss how we can reprogram our brains to process, meet and exceed our goals.

    Lionel Messi Life Lessons presented by Gracefully-Yours greeting cards

    in Lifestyle

    Life Lessons focuses on Lionel "Leo" Messi , the first and only player to top-score in four consecutive Champions League campaigns, and also holds the record for the most hat-tricks scored in the competition. In March 2012, Messi made Champions League history by becoming the first player to score five goals in one match.


    1.      There is no substitute for talent.


    2.      You need a bit of luck and connections.


    3.      But it doesn’t matter if you come from a modest background.


    4.      If you are good you will get the opportunity to succeed, but you must still capitalise on the opportunity.


    5.      In the face of the challenge (childhood illness) persistence pays off.


    6.      Expert opinions are not always worth that much – there is a club out there who regrets passing over on the opportunity to sign the little maestro.


    7.      It is not about the physical ability, but the mental ability.


    8.      His first instinct is to seek the goal: it is uncanny how aware he is of where the goal is even if he has his back to the goal.


    9.      He sees gaps and takes gaps no one sees or takes.


    10.   The highest accolade is not money, but the recognition of your peers. (Not in the shallow, politicised style of the Oscars, but rather the spontaneous acknowledgement of your peers.) In the face of that adulation, his instinctive reaction is one of humility. Watch this and you will see what I mean.
