The UN Millennium Declaration, signed in September 2000, established the Millenium development goals. The goals seek to comprehensively address a range of manifestations of poverty by 2015.
Following the lead of the UN in this important initiative, The United Nations Association of New Zealand is committed to educating New Zealanders on the importance of these goals and encourage individuals to do what they can to make poverty history.
We also advocate for, and support, Governemental action toward the realisation of the goals.
For more information on what the MDG's are, their history, and UN efforts to acheive them, please take a look at the United Nations Website.
