Almost a decade ago, world leaders adopted a blueprint for a better world – the Millennium Development Goals. The date for achieving these Goals is 2015. The 2010 Millennium Development Goals Report showed that while the world has made major advances—especially in the fight against poverty—the recent economic downturn has slowed, or even reversed, progress towards some areas of the eight goals. Today, more than ever, the world needs to come together to take action towards the Goals. Along with 188 other countries, the Government of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia pledged to reach the Goals.
