A NEW GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP:ERADICATE POVERTY AND TRANSFORM ECONOMIES THROUGH SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

“Our vision and our responsibility are to end extreme poverty in all its forms in the context
of sustainable development and to have in place the building blocks of sustained prosperity
for all.” 
 
The Panel came together with a sense of optimism and a deep respect for the Millennium
Development Goals (MDGs). The 13 years since the millennium have seen the fastest
reduction in poverty in human history: there are half a billion fewer people living below
an international poverty line of $1.25 a day. Child death rates have fallen by more than
30%, with about three million children’s lives saved each year compared to 2000. Deaths
from malaria have fallen by one quarter. This unprecedented progress has been driven
by a combination of economic growth, better policies, and the global commitment to
the MDGs, which set out an inspirational rallying cry for the whole world.
