Abstract

This paper evaluates the major options for reformulating the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Our purpose is to add weight and direction to emerging thinking on MDG reformulation in a way that: reaffirms the importance of global efforts to reduce extreme poverty; overcomes the problems endemic in the existing MDGs; accelerates the reduction of extreme poverty globally; builds the foundations of a more comprehensive global development programme; tailors poverty reduction efforts to local conditions and strengthens national-level poverty eradication policies; and offers a realizable prospect for maintaining momentum in UN development efforts.

Keywords: millennium development goals, poverty reduction, global
