Clark: Achieving MDGs will pave way for post-2015 agenda success

Achieving the Millennium Development Goals will create momentum for the post-2015 development agenda, says Helen Clark, head of the United Nations Development Programme. Clark told delegates to the MDG meeting in Colombia this week that "[e]verything learned from what it takes to achieve them is relevant to throwing ourselves behind the global development agenda which follows." MDGs that need special attention are sanitation, hunger and maternal deaths. Development Newswire blog (2/28) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

"If humanitarian relief workers are seen as serving ends beyond feeding starving people, they will be barred from accessing populations in need. That is what makes proposals to harness aid for extraneous purposes so dangerous."
