This is a watershed year for poverty eradication and sustainable development. It is the target year for the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs rallied the world around a common 15-year agenda to tackle poverty and other social ills. It is also the year when the Member States of the United Nations will agree on the blueprint for sustainable development for the next 15 years when they gather at the Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa in July, at the UN summit on the post 2015 development agenda in September, and at the Conference of Parties on climate change in December.
