Helen Clark calls for ‘reinvigorated, transformational’ agenda

Bogota — New global development goals must reflect current realities while sustaining the vision and momentum of the original Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), UN Development Programme (UNDP) Administrator Helen Clark said Wednesday.

“The food, fuel, climate, economic, political, and security crises of the first 12 years of this century have reminded us of how fragile development gains can be in the face of shock and adversity,” she said in opening remarks here to a global conference on “Making the MDGs Work.”

The conference, hosted by the Government of Colombia, comes just over 1,000 days before the 31 Dec. 2015 target set by the 2000 Millennium Declaration, in which 189 national delegations pledged to work toward eight goals such as reducing child and maternal mortality, expanding access to clean water and sanitation, and tackling acute hunger.
