The Millennium Development Goals Eight Goals for 2015

Overview

Summary

The national consultations are intended to foster an inclusive multi-stakeholder process and advocate for a Post-2015 development agenda informed by national and local priorities. National stakeholders in Lebanon will come together to exchange inputs and ideas for a shared Lebanese vision of "The Future We Want", in an inclusive and open debate with relevant knowledge on development challenges, opportunities and solutions.
The consultations will seek to ensure that the vision of the Lebanon we want to live in takes into account the perspectives from a broad base of civil society, marginalized groups, and others previously left out of discussions on development priorities.The decade of 1990s was a remarkable period of time signaling the launching of the first Human Development Report in 1990 that urged the governments of the world to initiate people-centered development.Through a series of Global Conferences and Summits and the subsequent respective follow-up Conferences, this ultimate goal was put forward when the world leaders and the United Nations System pledged enactment to global development during the twenty first century.  The declarations and resolutions of the United Nations Global Conferences and Summits have outlined the International Development Targets (IDTs).  The IDTs were first adopted by the OECD/DAC in 1996 and endorsed again in 2000.
At the UN Millennium Summit in September 2000, one hundred forty nine (149) Heads of State and representatives of government from some 180 countries adopted the Millennium Declaration. In this Declaration, an augmented set of targets with corresponding indicators were agreed upon and now known as the Declaration of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
