MDG Momentum - 1000 days of Actions on streets of Astana

Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) stem from the Millennium Declaration, which was signed by 191 states, including Kazakhstan, and captures the common aspiration of all nations to build a better and safer place for the twenty-first century. The MDGs are set of clear, numerical targets with assigned indicators to which the international community has subscribed - by 2015 to halve poverty, reduce child and maternal mortality, expand educational opportunities for all, promote gender equality, halt the spread of HIV/AIDS and other major diseases, and improve the environment.    

Kazakhstan has achieved the first three Millennium Development Goals and has set more ambitious ‘MDG+’ goals and targets: halve poverty among the rural population; achieve universal secondary education; ensure gender mainstreaming in national planning and budgeting; prevent violence against women; and increase women’s representation in legislative and executive bodies.
