About this book

The flagship publication of the UN Millennium Development Project, outlining a bold new action plan for ending poverty, providing practical investment strategies and approaches to financing them and an operational framework that will allow even the poorest countries to achieve the MDGs within ten years.

From the publisher's announcement:

Poverty in all of its forms is devastating the lives of billions of people world-wide. In 2000, at the largest ever meeting of world leaders, the UN adopted a comprehensive set of targets known as the Millennium Development Goals (MGDs) designed to galvanize world action on poverty. Investing in Development brings together the core recommendations of the UN Millennium Project, commissioned by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and directed by Jeffrey D. Sachs, Special Advisor to the Secretary-General on the Millennium Development Goals. This landmark publication outlines a bold new action plan for ending poverty, providing practical investment strategies and approaches to financing them and an operational framework that will allow even the poorest countries to achieve the MDGs within ten years.
