About Millennium Development Goals

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are eight goals to be achieved by 2015 that respond to the world's main development challenges. They form a blueprint agreed upon by the absolute majority of world countries and all the world's leading development institutions to address issues such as poverty, hunger, and education for the world's poorest. 

As a signatory to the Millennium Declaration of September 2000, Georgia is committed to defining and fulfilling the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that address specific Georgian needs. For each of the eight MDGs there are a number of national targets adjusted for Georgia.
