The UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have been a catalyst for progress around the world in the fight against poverty. The MDGs are the most successful global anti-poverty push in history. Governments, international organizations and civil society groups around the world have helped to cut in half the world’s extreme poverty rate. More girls are in school and fewer children are dying. So, what is next?
