At the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000 189 world leaders made a historic promise when they agreed to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Five years later professor Jeffrey D Sachs laid out a blueprint to achieve these MDG's in his book "The End of Poverty: Economic Possibilities for Our Time." Since then many organizations and initiatives are putting this blueprint into practice.
